“40 X 40”
Paolo Ulian & Moreno Ratti_2014
What you can get from one marble tile 40 x 40cm?From the marble tiles found in dusty warehouses of our craft companies?What things can be made by cutting with water jet machine, assembling simply the pieces without creating waste material? The trial on these issues has led to propose 7 items.Thoughts in form of objects where the ethical reasons of the production process at least want to have the same relevance of their form and their function.
PiùOmeno_Table lamp is the 1st object of the collection:
The four pieces that form the lamp are made cutting a marble tile 40x40x1cm with waterjet machine, without producing any waste material. It’s easily assembled and disassembled with simple joints. To increase or decrease the light intensity is sufficient to move forward or backward the shape of the lampshade on which is mounted the led light.
Dimensions: cm. 20 x 20 x 40h.
Materials: Carrara marble
