Collectible Design



Italy is one of the world’s leading producers of marble. Marble processing is an operation that generates a large quantity of waste, also known as “offcuts,” which vary in type and size. These offcuts originate from the fractures that occur during processing, which are quite common given the nature of the material, or from pieces that remain after processing or extracting a marble piece. The waste resulting from the cutting and processing of stone can range from a minimum of 35% to a maximum of 75% of the physical unit. Therefore, from 100 kg of marble (block) input, only 25 kg of finished product may be obtained, and the remaining 75 kg constitute the waste.


In a country like Italy, where the tradition of marble has a millennia-old history, where stone is born or transported to become sculpture, art and history, the production of waste derived from processing leaves its mark on the ground, defenseless.


In a dialogue of contrasts, collaboration, and sustainability, aluminum embraces marble. It doesn’t disturb, deface, or interfere with the material but rather welcomes and supports it.

The project “Merge” welcomes these remnants and emphasizes their uniqueness. In each piece, the story of the previous narrative remains sculpted. Each piece is an expression of a previous narrative. Matter and transformation. “Merge” is a collection that extends our exploration into material recovery and sustainable design principles.

In addition to the marble, we’ve chosen to use aluminum, which is a 100% recyclable material. In this narrative, the materials showcase their own peculiarities and put them in comparison.

They undress to clothe each other: they are no longer waste but in constant transformation, becoming new material. Materials are shown in their authenticity without any further processes applied. The product is completely handmade in Italy.
