Description

Laboratorio Morseletto is a family-owned company, internationally acclaimed for over a century for its high skill, innovation, and craftsmanship in Vicenza Stone and various types of marble.

Since it was founded, the company has worked on countless commissions with some of the greatest names in the fields of architecture, design, art, and sculpture – Carlo Scarpa, Ettore Sottsass, Frank Gehry, David Chipperfield, Gino Bogoni and Roberto Burle Marx – to name just a few. It was a great honor to be invited to visit Laboratorio Morseletto’s facilities, explore their surroundings and design the company’s first ever own collection.

Vicenza Stone comes in just three colors – gray, yellow, and white, and at first sight may seem rather humble. Yet, a closer look reveals a whole universe of embedded tiny fossils – an evidence for the stone’s ancient origin, while a depth of delicate variations in color and structure provides it with a distinctive warmth.

Wandering through Laboratorio Morseletto’s colossal, mesmerizing underground Berici Hills quarries, we were drawn to their deeper areas where the yellow and gray stones meet. The unique historical and natural narrative illustrated through this peculiar phenomenon has formed the core of the collection.

BICOLORE functions as an expandable form language, visualizing, and honoring the particular characteristics of the Vicenza Stone, as well as the correlation between volumes in the immense spaces in the subterranean mazes of the quarries.

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
