“Prickless Pear” is a sculpture in green marble, that belongs to OPUNTIA collection with motto “Please do touch!”.
OPUNTIA is a collection of sculptural furnishings by marble atelier on·entropy, that invites us to pause and experience the plasticity in contemporary marble design. Originally inspired by the cactus plant, with its distinct harmonic irregularity and fluidity, on·entropy has conceived each leaf of the sculptures as a free, hand-drawn circular plane. This 2D, planar surface then acquires volume and evolves into an extra-terrestrially shaped sculpture.
These two, the organic arrangement of the natural world and the essence of the macro-cosmic form, are married into unique sculptural furnishings. Designed with introspection and with exquisite craftsmanship at heart, the user is encouraged to slow down and engage their senses.
The sculpture comes in seven pieces (leaves). The user is invited to assemble it and experience the plasticity of marble. Each piece is expertly handcrafted by the sculptor in natural marble, therefore subtle differences may occur.
