Mineral System was founded in 2015 with a pioneering and ambitious approach that combines advanced technical knowledge of stonework, the selection of raw materials and the art of shaping them into a technological innovation. With the development of Honeycomb, their flagship proprietary technology, it is possible to handle and apply the stone in an easier way through a lamination process of thin stone glued to aluminium honeycomb, allowing for the production of large-sized panels and giving the final product a reduced weight – known as ‘ultra-light’. Utilising their strong knowledge base alongside vast experience, Mineral System studies and follows-up on each individual project, offering ad hoc architectural solutions to the highest level of quality.
This extremely light system optimizes and facilitates installation while ensuring maximum resistance. Honeycomb’s ultra-light, resistant and innovative technique revolutionizes the stone sector by opening new avenues to architects, designers and interior decorators. This technique supports large format coverings by reducing weight constraints and simplifying installation processes whilst preserving the aesthetics of the natural materials. The Honeycomb system fits all projects and is easily adaptable to either internal or external facades and vertical coverings, ceilings or furniture. The main purpose of this technology is to reinforce stone with important mechanical and physical characteristics turning it light, flexible and adaptable to the most complex decoration projects. The combination between natural stone and aluminum Honeycomb panels enables an indivisible assembly which supports much higher efforts and deformations than a classical stone panel of 20mm thickness.
