Ulf Nordfjell and I travelled to France last week to look at stone that we might use in the Laurent-Perrier garden next year. The difference in our footwear was striking! Ulf turned up in Prada whilst I had my muddy walking boots from Meindl. It rather epitomised the different worlds that designers and nurserymen live in!
We were shown round by David Fery of Rocomat. The quarry is incredibly impressive with vast machines sawing this beautiful stone from the French countryside. Truly remarkable.
