Interior designers simply love marble because of the durability, beauty and unique specimen and it is inspired by the possibilities of 3D modeling technology – creating attractive chairs, lamps, clocks…
Marble is one of the most luxurious natural materials, appreciated for endurance, and for the beauty. While on its first mention we think of classic forms, it can look V well and modern. It has been popularized by the architects such as Mies van der Rohe, Eero Saarinen and others, but not only for floor and wall coverings, but also for furniture which they designed themselves. The large marble return into the world of interior design coincides with a slow, but steady end of the financial crisis, which once again puts the spotlight on luxury. To this extremely hard and cold material given the softness and warmth, usually ends up combined with wood.
With metal, it goes best with matt brass because of its gilded, yet unobtrusive shine. And although the marble because of its properties is most often used as a plate at the table, it is now almost everywhere: in class, kitchen small things, shelves and lamps. Since it is not monochrome, designers are appealing for stylistic and coloristic combinations. An additional challenge and its unpredictability – in processing, in fact, it can often break. But while Michelangelo used a hammer and chisel ‘ to freed the sculptures trapped in a block of stone’ today marble is easily modeled with the help of 3D technology.
