“Lines & Waves marble tables are the result of an exploration of pattern and stack-ability. Machine-milled grooves cut into the top and bottom surfaces of single marble blocks result in a pattern that is both decorative and functional. The pattern is crucial to the furniture’s design, as it allows for flexibility and play when interlocking the single blocks. At the same time, the wave pattern lends the very heavy blocks of marble a new delicacy and tactility. Starting from the idea of a system the building elements are basic geometrical shapes derived from cylinders and rectangles made from different types of marble. The pieces are tactile; smoothly polished. Once stacked, the compositions take on the function of furniture, anything from low to high tables, consoles or dining tables.”
