“–ISH” is a collection of pieces emphasizing the illusion and beauty of stone-like materials whilst entirely made from recycled and reclaimed post-industrial waste.
The exhibition showcased the result of the collaboration between Matteo Fogale and Laetitia De Allegri expressing the common interest in sustainable sources and new aesthetics on design.

“Slate-ish” is a material that resembles stone, but is made in the US from recycled and reclaimed sources of paper-laminate. Not only is it lightweight, it is also strong, durable, and easy to install. “Denimite” is made from post-consumer and post-industrial denim scrap, recycled denim fiber material. Every piece is unique, this is a cotton fiber biocomposite that is highly moldable, lightweight and tough, with no offgassing of toxic chemicals.

“Marblus” is made from white cotton/polyester post-industrial scrap. This scrap material is plentiful, and gives a great source for a white-based composite. This fabric is used for sheets, clothing, and various other fabric products. The trimmings are shredded and the combination of fabrics give a wonderful blue/gray tone mixed with white, looking much like Carrara Marble.
