Marble Ways Collection aims to capture the unusual atmospheres of some impressive Italian workplaces by freezing time at the end of the material’s life cycle, thereby giving it a new life.
The worktops of Italian quarries and marble processing labs consist of wood planks which are continuously scratched by huge circular blades used to cut blocks of stone.
Once consumed by the blades, these wooden planks are replaced and become waste. The collection draws inspiration from this timber so rich in history and wants to give it a second life.
Like the water flow of the cutting operations, a transparent resin is poured on the uneven wood surface to encapsulate marble residues and level all the roughness, freezing time preserving the materials from degrading agents. A poetic license which also allows us to obtain an excellent and durable functionality.
The pattern of this collection transcend the ordinary perception of these workplaces: the surfaced old wood wants to be touched, and the transparency of the resin in the grooves invites to explore and lead through the marble ways.
