Launch of The Quarry is set to Revolutionize Marble Display, Selling and Buying in India
MUMBAI, August 5, 2016
The Brand Launches its Premiere 12,000 sq. ft. Marble Gallery Curating Some of the World’s Finest Marble and Rare Onyx in Mumbai
The Quarry gallery, a one-of-its-kind 12000 sq. ft. curated marble gallery, was launched in Mumbai with a vision to enable buyers, architects and interior designers to discover a renewed approach to marble from selection to purchase to installation. The Quarry Gallery, launched by Chief Curator – Rupesh Shinde, boasts a collection of the world’s finest marble, stone and rare onyx under one roof.
The core concept of The Quarry was borne out of founder Rupesh Shinde’s experiences as a commodity trader in London as well as his apprenticeship of over three years under Italian marble industry stalwarts. Rupesh caters to the Indian diaspora longing for a destination where marble is not seen as a commodity, but much closer to a consumer’s heart, a piece of art.
Speaking on the launch Rupesh Shinde, Founder, Chief Curator, The Quarry, commented, “With our gallery, we aim to change the way marble and stone is being bought and sold traditionally. All of the timeless qualities of rare marble and stone have been individually curated during my travels across the world, and are stunningly displayed at our gallery. At The Quarry, we have the best luxury marble and precious stone collection from the most prestigious Italian and world quarries.”
Till date, the marble-buying pattern has been through retailers, naturally driven by populist market demand, passion for and information about the product was always at a premium. The discerning buyer would have to make trips abroad to get their marble of choice. The Quarry aims to be this difference, offering buyers in India carefully curated stories of creation, of art, of opulence and of pride. Bringing back the passion and knowledge from international veterans, Rupesh believes in quality craftsmanship and a unique perspective on design that will be offered to all this clients. The Quarry will also offer innovations such as bacteria resistant BactoFinish and QVAC, a special ultra-strengthening technology that increases the integrity and longevity of every slab.
Extending support to The Quarry team, a number of global experts and designers from Italy and the UK and Indian architecture were present during the gala launch. The current Quarry gallery is located at Kanjurmarg, Mumbai, and the brand has already planned a second gallery in London to cater to its International customers.
