“Looking at the vast corporate foyers of Liverpool Street, clad with back-lit Carrara marble, these pieces reference the forceful use of a symbolically luxury material. Marble slabs, cracked and folded, are forced into precarious shapes. A symbol of permanency and geological authenticity, marble is used as a tool to inspire confidence in clients and potential investors. These vacuous and excessive spaces, derived from a Modernist formula, are informed by professional conduct. Marble furniture was exhibited at the Royal College of Art and Design Days Dubai 2015.” (Text: softbaroque.com)
