The tradition of stone turned into a trend
SAS Prefabricados de hormigón S.A. is a family business founded by Joan Sas i Gregori, great-great-grandfather of the current manager, in 1900 in Vilanova i la Geltrú (Barcelona). It was initially specialised in artificial stone and hydraulic tiles, but since the 50s it has focused on products known as “decorative and ornamental products” in prefabricated concrete.
Modules and architecture, from fractals to prefabricated elements
The discipline of architecture is characterized by proportions, modules, and ratios, which, in most cases, are inspired by nature. Starting with the Vitruvian Man, to the Modulor by Le Corbusier, the intention was always to find relationships between human beings and their surroundings. One of the main objectives, especially during Modernism, was to project efficient spaces, in terms of both usability and economy.
