After a visit in workshops where marble is worked and transformed, just near the marble quarry in Carrara, Stefania is amazed by the intelligence of sculptor easels, built to support big and heavy marble blocks.
Inspired by these ingenious structures, Stefania designs a series of stools juxtaposing two materials: wood and marble.
In this object, marble becomes itself a part of the stool; it finishes geometrically the ingenious and strong wood manufacturing.
A series of stools with a changing marble sitting. Each stool is a single piece, a geometry of marble, a cut-out of alive stone.
