One week after the end of Marmomacc, the international fair dedicated to the production and processing of stone industry, we collected ten projects that show the versatility of an ancient material such as marble.

– Winner of the Best Communicator Award, the set up by Patricia Urquiola for Budri tells in an expressive way the Papyrus Collection, which explores the concept of lightness in marble.

– Simply stacking the marble modules we can create a freestanding bookcase with countless possible configurations, designed by Archea Associati for Luce di Carrara.

– In the first Marmomacc’s pavilion international designers and architects and Italian companies show the result of traditional craftsmanship and advanced machinery.

– Simple geometric shapes and contrasting materials: Korean designer JinSik Kim plays with these elements for his collection of side-tables and stools.

– Pierre Charpin presents at Galerie kreo, London, a collection of small marble tables and a series of ten clown vases, a new subject on the vase he designed for Sèvres.

– Italian product designer and illustrator Lucia Massari participates at Vienna Design Week with a project that explores new ways of reusing high quality marble scrap.

– CN10 architetti’s project for Sant’Antonio Abate church, in Italy, is a general reinterpretation of the part of the construction remaining incomplete, it affects both the interior and the exterior.

– Carlo Colombo devotes his marble table lamp designed for FontanaArte to Milan and to the magic moment that the city is experiencing in recent months.

– Rirkrit Tiravanija’s new work, at Galerie Chantal Crousel in Paris, seems an ironical attempt to construct a mausoleum for the now defunct punk aesthetic.

– Harmoniously embedded in the historical urban grain of the medieval old town of Feldkirch, in Austria, the Montforthaus is a multi-purpose cultural centre conceived by Hascher Jehle Architektur with a contemporary form cladded with the traditional Jura marble of the region.
