Sculptural, natural and eternal: marble in extraordinary furnishings and accessories

23 November 2021

Thanks to excellent manufacturing techniques, this material of extraordinary beauty becomes versatile and increasingly refined

Shaping stone has always been a human desire, first to defend oneself, then to create functional tools, and today to give life to objects of extraordinary beauty and eternal value. From the struggle for life to the need to surround oneself with beauty, stone continues to accompany the man who over the centuries has modified and refined his ability to transform and enhance it. Marble is the most sophisticated example of this ancient wisdom and is also a material closely linked to the made in Italy. Not only because the most famous varieties are found in Italian quarries but also for the processing techniques that have developed there. The transformation of this stone is always aimed at enhancing its surface, with the veins and shades of color that enchant. Precisely due to the type of procedure, furnishings and accessories in marble – such as those that follow – have a sculptural character and a vocation that is not only functional but also highly decorative. On the cover, the Marea table by Budri.

Soprano table by Massimo Castagna for Henge

The scenic but composed presence of marble is best expressed in the Soprano marble table designed by Massimo Castagna for Henge, a brand of which he is the art director. In this case, the stone is in harmonious dialogue with the solid wood of the structure, available in various essences which can be optionally covered in leather. Classic in the rectangular version, very interesting in the square version.

Eccentrico table by Angelo Mangiarotti for Agapecasa

Eccentrico is a domestic architecture with a sculptural beauty. Reductive to define it as a table, this element gives the environment an artistic depth of great value. The asymmetry of the composition expands the boundaries of this material, giving it an unprecedented feature: lightness. The large joint on the surface becomes a characterizing, almost decorative, aesthetic element, but also an account of the underlying design research. Eccentrico is available in five marble variants and also in the low living room version.

Koishi coffee table by Jean Marie Massaud for Poliform

Koishi in Japanese means “pebble” and Jean Marie Massuad was inspired by this element of nature with its soft and rounded contours. The materials used are an ode to nature: the wood of the structure and the marble of the top – also available in glass and wood – are a perfect match. From above, with its asymmetrical and rounded shape, it really looks like a river pebble.

Madison Avenue side table by Yabu Pushelberg for Man of Parts

Madison Avenue with its glamorous and glossy allure is the inspiration for this versatile coffee table designed by Yabu Pushelberg for Man of Parts. The top is in Onice Velluto marble with the characteristic streaks in the colors of the earth. The base is in brushed brass and gives structural stability and formal completeness.

Sculpture Table lamp by Vipp

Vipp translates marble into a luminous sculpture. Here the stone, worked to become smooth and rounded, fits perfectly with the mouth-blown glass lampshade. The light is warm and welcoming and can be adjusted with the dimmer integrated into the structure. Discreet and elegant.

The Village by Salvatori

Marble with all its decorative power and its conceptual profile is the heart of Salvatori’s The village collection. The company, totally devoted to this material, has asked some of the most prestigious designers and artists in the world to translate their concept of home into small sculptures and the result is surprising. Different styles that reveal the geographical origins of the designers, but also their personal vision of the house and their way of relating to marble with creativity.
