Rigor and seduction. A tactile and conceptual poetry that plays on the geometric rigidity of stone and marble shaped into emotional forms by skilled human technology. The brands present at the Salone del Mobile.Milano, specialized in working marble and stone, presented unusual and surprising creations, daring unexpected and impactful forms.
These materials are not easy to work with, but their fascination is irresistibly bound up with ancestral and archaic values, myths and rituals from distant cultures. Or, by contrast, they make it possible to create inlay work with contemporary vibes bordering on irony. In any case, they are creations of a design that seems timeless, suspended in a dreamlike dimension that fuses the organic and inorganic.
The result is products of excellence that have their roots in craft skills and lived experiences, in which the apparent coldness of the medium is shattered – there is no other word for it – in a formal synthesis that bypasses the rigorous rules of the material.
