"Block"
by sabine7 / May 8, 2008
Block: Turkish Marble Meets Design was an exhibition curated by Murat Patavi and held in the Milan’s Design Library in Zona Tortona during design week. Eighteen designers of international renown created work using Turkish marble, originally from the island of Marmara. These contemporary pieces vary tremendously in scope. Matali Crasset’s vanity shelf is framed by a giant robot-like figure, and Paola Navone gives us a marble sofa. Jurgen Bey created marble packaging for a hair dryer and an iron, and above we have detail from a divider by Marco Kogan. More after the jump by Konstantin Grcic, Michael Young and Simon Heijdens.
