Design, research and innovation in the collection of fancy marble for the home and kitchen designed by Manuel Barbieri to Scandola Marmi previewed at MACEF-Creations.
Manuel Barbieri, Designer and art director who has assets of several partnerships with companies such as Zero Line, Purapietra and Margraf, will be present at MACEF in special creations with the first collection of fancy marble for the home and kitchen designed for Scandola Marmi, a company that so far has dealt only floors and walls in natural stone.
New design project by Manuel Barbieri is a set of objects with clean lines designed to be implemented in all variants of stones available in the company to meet the tastes of the users: a cutting board / tray, a wall clock, a trivet, vases, candle holders and a set table, designed for the online sales and therefore, despite the fine material, designed to be functional, lightweight, practical to send.
The collection will be exhibited at MARMOMACC in Verona from the 25 28 September.
TABLE SET: King Collection. Design Manuel Barbieri
The King Collection has a royal spirit. The concept is inspired by the majestic rings worn by kings, with striking initials and large precious stones. And to the sumptuous tables set for lunches full of every delight. The set consists of a placemat, coaster and napkin holder in marble, a material that at the table expresses well the ambivalence between formal elegance and conviviality. It can be interpreted in different ways, from white Carrara, which speaks of design and minimalism, to royal yellow which gives luxury to the equipment.
CANDLE HOLDER: Brick. Design Manuel Barbieri
Brick is a marble candle holder conceived as an imposing element, which becomes the protagonist of the space. The shape, solid and present, recalls that of a brick, but refined and elegant. Made in two versions for three or six candles in carrara white and orient gray, it is the most rigorous and minimalist piece of the entire Scandola Marmi collection.
TABLE: Octagon. Design Marco Magalini
The Ottagono collection, designed by Marco Magalini, includes coffee tables with an octagonal top made of different types of marble with slender legs in pointed iron. The basic idea is to transform the material, usually conceived in furniture as a covering, into a tribute to geometry. Ottagono is perfect both indoors, for a composition in the living room or single as a bedside table in the sleeping area, and for the outdoors. Lightweight, they can be easily replaced.
WATCHES: City Collection. Design Manuel Barbieri
“Thinking of the cities I have visited, which I will visit and which I would like to visit - says the designer Manuel Barbieri - I have brought the shadows of the houses in the scorching summer sun on paper”. From the stylized silhouettes comes a collection of four marble wall or countertop clocks. The hands, in a contrasting fluorescent color, highlight the profile and make the material even more contemporary and design. The profiles are reminiscent of Italian, Austrian, Moroccan and Arab houses: places rich in traditions, customs and charm. Every time we look at the time it will be nice to think about that city we have not yet visited or the one where we fell in love ...
