“It’s great to see work­shops like Retegui, a third-gen­er­a­tion com­pany that started out mak­ing grave­stones from mar­ble but which now makes mar­ble fur­ni­ture,” says Young. “The sec­ond and third gen­er­a­tion have re­ally thought about how they can rein­ter­pret and de­velop those skills to keep that tra­di­tion alive and cre­ate very mod­ern, min­i­mal­ist pieces of fur­ni­ture.” Founded in 1939 in South­west France as a mar­ble craft­works by Lau­rent Bergez, the com­pany is now run by grand­son Claude Retegui, who has helped to de­velop new tech­niques to com­bine stone with com­pos­ite ma­te­ri­als, thereby mak­ing it lighter without com­pro­mis­ing on so­lid­ity and strength. Cut­ting-edge cre­ative tal­ents such as in­dus­trial de­signer Jean Louis Irat­zoki and award-win­ning Bel­gian de­signer Syl­vain Wil­lenz have also col­lab­o­rated on the style-for­ward fur­ni­ture.

「如今到了家族管理的第三代,Retegui已發展不同創新業務。他們過往主要以大理石切割墓碑,而現在則製造各色各樣的大理石傢具。 品牌的第二代和第三代負責人開發新進技術保留傳統,同時以精湛手藝重新演譯時尚精巧的傢具。」Lau­rent Bergez於1939年在法國西南部創立了大理石工藝品牌,現由孫子Claude Retegui掌管家族企業。他發展適合石材和複合物料的技術,成功減輕大理石重量和保持良好的堅固性。工業設計師Jean Louis Irat­zok­i和比利時得獎設計師Syl­vain Wil­len­z等頂級設計人才與品牌合作推出現代時髦的傢具。

THE MOD­ERN WAY Retegui rein­ter­prets the age-old tech­niques of mar­ble work­ing used to make grave­stones in craft­ing its min­i­mal­ist, con­tem­po­rary fur­ni­ture. 現代設計 品牌Retegui運用過往打造墓碑 的傳統工藝,重新展現時尚優雅的傢具。
