FOUND | 2017
Spontaneity, environmental awareness and the primeval nature of the materials used are central themes explored in the FOUND collection, which focuses on the power of the medium to dictate the final form these functional works of art take. The artists work in perfect harmony with nature by bolstering the ouvres it produced with their creative vision and interpretation, dressing them in elements that give them function in the home while amplifying their natural beauty and underscoring their primordial perfection.
All marble found in the furniture pieces is unique and was hand-picked at a family-owned quarry in the distant, magical land of Turkey. The stones are preserved in their original form. Their imperfections are what gives them a new lease on life: clean edges and polished surfaces contrast starkly with the coarse and ragged ridges of the fissures reminiscent of the mountainscapes whence they originated, thus bringing nature and many years of history inside the home.
