1. Two years ago Pietrasanta Industries and Carmine Deganello presented a new thermoplastic resin and started working with it together with a group of designers. The material is a mixture of marble dust and tree resin. It does not contain synthetic or toxic components and is entirely renewable: objects made of it are easy to recycle. Moreover, a solid mould is not required, which means that waste is no longer part of the manufacturing process!
    First heated and then poured, this natural resin is as strong as marble and simultaneously as fluid as water. Its flexible nature allows for a variety of moulding materials and options. All participants made the most of this exciting freedom: they chose leather, wood, cardboard, and even ice to give manifold shapes to this amazing material.
