“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。
