Description

Asteroid is a family composed of five marble shelves to be placed along the edge of two adjacent walls. Each shelf is a unique piece hand crafted in Italy, with different shapes and dimensions, created in different marbles: Portoro, Rosa Aurora, Rosso Collemandina, Azul Cielo and Verde Antigua. The set can be installed as you like and, it can also coexsist with the Mycelium series. The shelves can accomodate small objects or live as furnishing accessories themselves.
The bevelled edges enable two choice possibilities of the support surface. The work is inspired by the nature entropic force, trying to question the relation between the design object and the final user who is invited to become the “editor” of the display itself. Mushrooms and space minerals of precious marble climb up the walls randomly, giving unlimited composition possibilities. The marble has a new contemporary meaning. Julio Verne’s world at the “Centre of the Earth” is the inspirational background of these shelves family that try to focus again imagination and fantasy at the centre of the design practice.
