GREY COSMOS GRANITE

Like meteors tracing across the clear night sky, Grey Cosmos Granite draws its name from the celestial patterns which create its unique visual movement.  

 

Inspired by Switzerland’s Valser Gniess, a material made famous by Peter Zumthor’s Pritzker Architecture Prize winning Therme Vals hotel/spa complex, Grey Cosmos Granite offers similar captivating, visually arresting characteristics.

Quarried in northern China, this extremely durable granite is suitable for hard climates with severe freeze/thaw fluctuations, and comfortably accepts heavy foot and vehicle traffic.  Its most popular finishes are split and honed, which display this material’s evolution most dramatically.
