Let us introduce ourselves and the Lithos Design family.
CLAUDIO BEVILACQUA – OWNER & PRODUCTION MANAGER: I started working in our family’s marble Company when I was about 20, and my approach to natural stone was immediately rough and pure, as daily I had to face its weight, the powder produced when you cut it, the muddy water of its smoothing, the loud noise of bush-hammering or chiselling. I really had to climb my ladder before taking on my managing role, and yet this is how I fell in love with this material; I really missed the direct contact with bare stone when I had to leave the production units. But indeed, this separation was the seed for what would become Lithos Design, I think: getting to know the world of design made me curious, and the dream began… precisely in that period, destiny made me meet designer Raffaello Galiotto, who shared my same enthusiasm and desire to try new and unexplored paths, to meet more challenges, no matter how hard, with Stone at the core of all this.
ALBERTO BEVILACQUA – OWNER & SALES MANAGER: I started up Lithos Design entrepreneurial project together with my brother right after getting my MBA, and it immediately became my passion and my objective. Our dedication, our aim to produce good and constantly better work are the stimuli that help us travel the difficult road of innovation, the one you can travel only when you strongly believe that your most beautiful product will always be the one still to come. If I think of Lithos Design, I think of its future, of what lies ahead: I imagine it preserving the same spirit and values as in 2007, when we got started, as these values are identical to its current ones; but with an important presence and a prestigious reputation on the market, I can see it aiming at more and more far-reaching goals.
ANDREA BAZZON – TECHNICAL DEPARTMENT: Natural stone and marble have always been a great discovery to me, it’s fascinating to talk about it. Of course, it’s not always easy to understand this material, also because every single day it conveys you new feelings and emotions, and presents you with different problems depending on the single application and context you are producing it for. Maybe, that captivating “je ne sais quoi” which constantly attracts me about stone consists precisely in this, in its variability. When you touch it, you can tell you’re touching something alive, something that seems cold but that, at the same time, conveys warmth. Sometimes it’s a pity to cut it, sometimes it looks even more beautiful once it’s cut. Marble doesn’t get hurt when you cut it, the blade caresses it and it gives you new emotions in return. Someway, this is what we do in Lithos Design: we caress stone, and it repays us spreading back its warmth out of the forms we shape it in.
GIULIA BELLUZZO – SALES: I’ve been working in Lithos Design for a few years now, and it seems to me I’ve always been here! I still remember my first days in here: I definitely felt in love with the Product, everything was so exciting, everyone was so friendly and, above all, they all had lots of patience!! I work in Lithos Design as Sales Manager in charge of North America and Middle East; I spend my days getting in touch with our Customers and the most part of them are more friends than Clients by now! Lithos Design is kind of a second family and it is growing very fast: new faces, new personalities, all of them complementary to the existing ones and which are therefore source of inspiration and reason of continuous learning. I simply love working in this team and I strongly believe in our mission: convey emotions through Stone.
DEBORA ASTEGNO – SALES: I work as Sales representative in charge of Central and South America, Middle and Western European countries, Africa, Turkey, India and Far East. My aim is to help my customers make their way in the wide and amazing world of natural stone. From the first phone call to the post-sale customer service, I supervise of all the steps of a transaction with the closest care. I love my role in Lithos Design, because it allows me to be in continuous contact with an extremely stimulating environment: I deal everyday with people from all over the world, with different thoughts and ideas, who are inspired by our products to create their own projects, and I can help them exalt the beauty and warmth of cold and ancient stone.
LORENZO MARZOTTO – SALES: It’s not a long time since I’m working for Lithos Design. From my first step inside, at my interview, I fell in love with this company and the people I’m now working with. There’s an athmosphere that I’ve never felt before in a working place, my colleagues are sociable, helpful and really professional, which perfectly represents the Lithos Design’s spirit. At the moment I’m the sales representative for the English, Irish, East European, Russian and Australian markets. This position allows me to meet and be in contact with people from all over the world, that’s another reason why I love so much this job, as I’m a traveller. I will so gladly help you to choose the products that could suit better your needs, with information, technical specs, quotations and whatever you may require.
MONICA TADIELLO – ACCOUNTS: I work for Lithos Design accounts office. Our Company is so innovative, and even if I have a twelve years experience in my field, I’m learning to know a new world, made of creativity, efforts and teamwork. As a Company, Lithos Design is growing and I am, too, together with it.
ROBERTA COSTANTINI – MKG & PR: Working for Lithos Design means an on-going professional and personal growth and an everyday routine full of inspirations and novelty, where it’s impossible to get bored. This is what I appreciate about this company: a whirlwind of ideas and activities and the deep desire never to stop, always thinking of the next step. A fresh and innovative approach applied to every aspect, marketing and communication, too. Because, you know, when you like what you’re doing, you can’t help communicating and sharing your passion, always in the best and most original way possible. It’s such a pleasure to be part of this, above all because I’m let free to experiment and improve myself… all of it with just one condition: enjoying myself fully in what I’m doing. And, to be honest, that’s no problem for me. Eventually, the most important part of an adventure is the path, not the destination, isn’t it? So, let the fun go on!
SONIA SERAFINI – MKG & PR: In Lithos Design, I work as a Marketing Assistant and, being my first work experience, I’ve been a little scared at the beginning. But the warm welcome I received by all the team really encouraged me, completely eliminating my fears! Every day is an opportunity to learn something new and I’m always more excited about how powerful design may be in shaping people’s lives. I’m also excited by the charm and the extraordinary properties natural stone has and how Lithos Design has merged this with cutting-edge technology and innovative design. Daily living this reality is definitely helping me develop professionally and understand how much history and innovation may be hidden behind the smallest chip of stone.
Natural Stone is part of our Mother Earth... the most ancient of architectural materials, but industrial design has shown its new potential. Lithos Design is proud to be one of the Companies who are devoting themselves to design stone products. This is our passion and our job, and this is what we will tell you about here, as industrial stone design is quite a new field and knowledge about it really needs to be spread.
