Welcome behind the scenes of Rocalia 2019 where the FFPPS and its partners met, before the show, to create a dry stone work on the Rocalia Talents Demonstration area: the Snake Project.

The recipe for this work? The meeting between engraving, sculpture, carving and dry stone construction.

During this time, Les Compagnons du Devoir set to work on a piece of natural stone: the Acoustic Shell. A true work of stereotomy, this project was exhibited at the Rocalia Forum to host the various conferences.
It enabled two complementary industries to meet: mineral and vegetable.

The meeting between architecture and natural stone at the Rocalia fair

This year, we were able to attend the Prize-giving of the 5th architectural competition "Building in natural stone" organized by Pierre Actual and the National Syndicate of Ornamental Rock and Construction Industries (SNROC). It was therefore an opportunity to discover natural stone works that were made in France.

The Rocalia 2019 show was able to honor the design of natural stone through different approaches: furniture, decoration, wall and floor covering. Visitors were thus able to discover different pieces of design produced by our exhibitors by visiting the Rocalia Design Expo area. These pieces were selected by the Design Committee of the show which highlights the know-how of the designers and the nobility of natural stone.
