This Rheinback, Germany-based company has pioneered the art of paper-thin rock veneer. Using an innovative fiberglass backing—applied in liquid form to the slate block, whick allows the veneer to be manually peeled off—they create ultra-thin and surprisingly flexible real stone veneer.

The weight is around 1.5 kg per square meter, meaning a 4’ x 6’ piece would weigh in at around seven pounds.

This not only reduces transport and installation costs, it also helps conserve natural resources and enhance the number and type of potential applications.

A short list of the former would include interior walls, exterior walls, partition walls, fireplaces, chimneys, furniture, countertops, vanities, reception desks, media walls, ceilings, bathrooms, and showers.
