Revelstone, one of the country’s leading manufacturers of cast stone products, celebrated its 25th year by launching a new showroom in Lansdowne, Cape Town.
Designed as a landscaping ideas hub for architects, landscapers, interior designers, building contractors and the homeowner, the showroom is a visual feast, showcasing a wide range of Revelstone paving, cladding and coping for both outdoor landscaping and various indoor applications.
In addition to a double-volume exhibition space, the showroom boasts a boardroom for meetings and demonstrations on a large screen, an outdoor garden area and a coffee bar.
Speaking at the launch on September 13, Revelstone managing director, Alex Cyprianos, said the facility is a forum aimed at inspiring design creativity in the built environment.
“We are encouraging all our clients, be they the homeowner or landscape architect, to use this space to meet and collaborate in a relaxed atmosphere.”
Revelstone was founded by Andrew Cyprianos in 1993 and initially operated from an underground cellar in Muizenberg. A reputation for product development, innovation, quality personalised service spread rapidly catapulting the company to the pre-eminent position it commands today.
Cast stone products are durable, recyclable, cost-effective, versatile, energy- efficient and innovative.
“Natural stone products are becoming more expensive and less environmentally friendly, and are generally imported,” says Andrew. “By contrast, our products are produced using 95% of local raw materials located within 100km from our factory. In addition, all our moulds are 100% recyclable.
“Our products are almost indistinguishable from natural stone and we use traditional masonry skills combined with a modern moulding technique to painstakingly reproduce an original master which is then used to create a mould.”
