Hoe Het Gemaakt Is
“40 X 40” Marble Collection Paolo Ulian and Moreno Ratti – 2014 What can be made from one marble tile of 40 x 40 cm, found in the dusty warehouses of our craft companies? What things can be made by cutting them with a water jet machine, simply assembling the pieces, without creating waste material? The search for answers to these questions has led us to propose 7 items, of which the Piet Marble Fruit Bowl is an example. Thoughts in the form of objects, where the ethical reasons of the production process at least have the same relevance as their form and their function.
