• 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.
