Marbled Collection / Stool & furniture

Polyurethane and wood

Marbled Collection is not what it seems at first glance, Davide G. Aquini deliberately lies in order to awaken a deep emotional response.

— Harsh and rigorous looking stools made of plywood are matched with a cushion that looks like granite, but is actually a conglomeration of soft polyurethane that perfectly simulates the stone. Only when sitting down on them will you discover that an uncomfortable-looking object may hide a comfortable and welcoming nature.

— Marbled Collection is a successful experiment that merges the natural look-&-feel of wood with the artificial character of recycled polyurethane and Nobital designer concrete, creating well-balanced and surprising combinations.

The minimalist table and consolle, perfectly matched, underline the contrast between nature and artifice. The plans are delicately mottled, simulating precious and lightly shaded marbles. Actually this material is the result of R&D by Nobital, a new compound of synthetic resins and concrete that merges the elegance of marble with the performance of cement.
