Soft Marble by StudioPepe

June 08, 2015

Marsotto Edizione launched their first collection in October 2009. The design world took notice of the multi-functional pieces, rigorously and carefully crafted from White Carrara marble. Describing their mission to create products for everyday use, yet keeping them surprising and sometimes ironic; Soft Marble a site specific installation was conceptualised by Marsotto Edizione in collaboration with Milan based StudioPepe. Renowned and respected for their ability to create layered, experimental yet sophisticated spaces. Mami and Di Ponti, founders of Studiopepe created a multilayered space of geometric polyurethane in shades of grey and salmon acting as display platforms for the crafted marble pieces. The soft ‘light’ texture of the polyurethane blocks sustaining the weight of the Bianco Carrara marble pieces creates an interesting dialogue between the different materialities. Marblelous indeed.
