Sett paving

Setts are outdoor pavings that can be found in different contexts – residential, urban, civil. They consist of cubes or parallelepiped shaped stones, which can be paved also alongside (“opus incertum”). It is possible to obtain this kind of paving with our Cubico, both Regular and Irregular, and our Sestino, both Tradizionale and Rustico. The setting patterns for our Cubico are these: overlapping arcs and alternating overlapping arcs, peacock tail or fan, concentric cirles, and parallel rows. As for our Sestino, it is usually laid in parallel rows or in herringbone.

Another characteristics of sett paving is the colour and, for both the singularity that it gives to the place in which it is laid and the comfortable underfoot, it can be found in any traffic area.

Porfidi S.r.l. suggests the following outdoor setting patterns for setts.

CIOTTOLI / SASSI DA FIUME

Usually, pebbles are used for the paving of old towns and in the exterior finishings of villas, dry gardens, flowerbeds, and parks.

The gallery shows some works in which our porphyry plays the main role with its colours and the way it is laid. Paved according to both the tradition and the expertise of Porfidi S.r.l., it looks rough and yet exclusively modern.
