According to the ancient Greeks, in the beginning, the world was in a state of nothingness, which they called Khaosz in Greek. Gaia, the goddess of the Earth was born at the dawn of creation: she was the mother of all creation: the heavenly gods were descended from her through her union with Uranus, the Sky, having given birth to many children from this union. Gravel is a naturally occurring form of stone, which has always attracted people as a child as well as an adult. GAIA Calming Stone, a street furniture consisting of huge, gravel-shape elements, alludes to this friendly shape known well since our childhood.

It commands authority whether in natural or shaped forms, one cannot fail to notice it, yet it can remain a restrained visual spatial element. Due to its design, it almost floats above the ground. This magical monolith looks just as plain surface or sandblasted as decorative, textured finish in a style reminiscent of an unusual upholstery fabric.

Made of 100 percent natural freshwater Pannon Travertine.

Outstanding value in use: one of the greatest advantages of street furniture made from Pannon Travertine is that compared to other natural or artificial materials (which can get up to 15-20 degrees Celsius hotter than air), it does not heat up even in scorching sunshine, does not form a heat island, and provides a pleasant temperature sensation.

Its uniqueness lies in the natural varieties of limestone: the colour and pattern variability of the mined stone is very diverse, thus it cannot be used to make two street furniture of exactly the same texture or colour. Such is the background to its individuality.

Pannon Travertine, due to its special structure, is extremely resistant to salt, frost and abrasion.
