• We are Gravelli

    We give a soul to concrete. All our products originate in one place in Prague, Czech Republic. They are then used in architectural and design projects the world over.

  • Our story

    We are excited to discover new possibilities in the architecture and design world. Six years ago, we produced our first washbasin just in two people and a rented flat. Things have changed a lot since. Today our team has nearly twenty members and the production is divided into three large halls. Our work with concrete is clever, ecological and on the edge of the current technological possibilities. It’s not all about punk anymore. But love, hand care and a personal approach to everything we produce, that is what we still keep.

  • Our vision

    From the very beginning, we have been overcoming some poor perceptions of concrete and presenting it as modern, high-quality material with attractive properties. We love seeking new design solutions that work with an exceptional character and authenticity of concrete. We are proud to say that results of our production cannot be found in the same form and quality anywhere else in the world.

    • Jiří Peters

      co-founder

      As an engineer in the field, he looks after our technological activities, new mixtures and procedures. His methods change possibilities of concrete production and distinguish our products from others.

    • Ladislav Eberl

      co-founder

      He deals with trade and marketing, seeking new challenges to keep moving us forward and introduce our products the world over. He presents concrete as a modern, high-quality material with attractive properties.

    • Ladislav Jeřábek

      production foreman

      With twenty years of practice in the field, our concrete guru has the expertise to supervise the quality of each concrete batch we prepare at Gravelli. Thanks to him, we are confident our products always leave production in the best possible shape.

  • Our team

    Gravelli is not just a brand, it stands for everything we are – the creativity and devotion of the people who make it. Here are the ones who have been behind it since the very beginning.

  • Why Gravelli INNEX

    What is Gravelli for me? Jirka and Láďa, two unbelievable personalities with great energy and drive. Collaboration with Gravelli begins in 2013, when I lent a part of my Prague showroom to concrete furniture and accessories. To date, we have become the premium vendor of this brand, as confirmed by the extensive stock of all assortment of concrete furniture and accessories immediately available. Gravelli products have a soft spot in my heart, that’s why they have appeared in almost every of my projects and realizations.

    Why Gravelli Ivanka Kowalski

    Many people still distrust concrete and think it fits only to industrial interiors. Quite the contrary! I enjoy the contrast of the concrete’s roughness and the nobleness of materials such as marble or brass. A luxury is then not superficial. Precisely crafted concrete elements are perfectly suited to very luxurious interiors. And that is exactly what Gravelli offers!

    Why Gravelli Dagmar Štěpánová

    Gravelli is a safe bet for me. Their approach is professional and their products are charming. In the interior projects I design, concrete elements look outstanding. I also appreciate an individual approach to every project and kind attitude towards atypical solutions of standard products, such as the SLANT 06 basin tailor made in the required size for the Loft Hřebenky project.

    Why Gravelli Preciosa Lighting

    As a creative team of Preciosa Lighting, we have chosen to show the beauty of crystals in motion on a principle of four basic earth elements. Crystal Automata is a unique concept combining moving glass elements, light effects and impeccable use of materials. It was while thinking about a material shaping, when the idea to cooperate with Gravelli originated. Gravelli has then supplied monolithic black concrete bowls, which have become an integral part of all concepts – water, earth, air and fire – and perfectly highlighted the overall perception of Crystal Automata project.

    Why Gravelli Petr Šimůnek

    I have never imagined concrete making me that happy. Concrete, I had thought, is just gray and boring. Till I met boys from Gravelli. Since then, the equation concrete = boring has not worked at all for me. Since then, concrete = idea, concrete = beauty, concrete = originality. So now I have a plenty of their products at home. And they make me happy! :)

    Why Gravelli Zdenek's Oyster Bar

    Since last year, we have been connecting the traditional concept of oysters and champagne with local raw materials and leading Czech design brands. For our new menu, we invited Gravelli to create a special collection of tailor made plates. And that cooperation has inspired us – their work with concrete is very similar to ours in a kitchen. A careful selection of quality raw materials, personal approach and care for each piece of concrete, the emphasizes on detail and high level of final product and service – that is what we both share.
