Strati Temporali by Gumdesign – Doma – Italy
Strati Temporali by gumdesign for Italian Doma by Sacerdote explores the repurposing/upcycling of marble tiles. The making of these stunning pieces starts from merging together a number of discarded/found pieces of marble carefully layered in order to create the unique motives. Modern machinery is then coming into the picture and molding the blocks into these stunning pebble-shaped objects that can be used as vases, centerpieces or fruit bowls. The striped patterns have a strong reference to earth’s geological stratification which associated with the imaginary rolling motion of river’s pebbles create a strong image, reminiscent of life’s uninterrupted flow of events.
