This clas­sic, beau­ti­ful stone shines in many

new ap­pli­ca­tions and bold colours.

Favoured for floor­ing and other built-in sur­faces, mar­ble is a clas­sic ma­te­rial that is much-loved for its vein­ing and nat­u­ral beauty. Pop­ping up in forms other than the usual reg­u­lar-shaped flat tiles (bro­ken mar­ble, any­one?), its tac­tile beauty adds a touch of class to the most hum­ble of prod­ucts (think salt crush­ers and fish scalers). While us­ing mar­ble to ex­per­i­ment with sculp­tural forms, de­sign­ers are also ex­plor­ing the beauty of dra­matic, dark va­ri­eties, step­ping away from the plain white Car­rara we know so well.

Car­rara mar­ble tools for shred­ding and cut­ting food in­gre­di­ents take the form of pri­mary shapes in Stu­dio Lievito’s Ele­mentare for Opin­ion Ci­atti.

Zaha Ha­did’s Mer­curic for Citco is a col­lec­tion of three small ta­bles in or­ganic forms made with black Mar­quina or white Cove­lano mar­ble.

Pa­tri­cia Urquiola’s Earth­quake 5.9 ta­bles, cab­i­nets and vases for Budri use mar­ble frag­ments and other semi-pre­cious ma­te­ri­als from the rub­ble of last year’s Italy earth­quake.
