„Flexible Stone – new paths in stone design“

This variant of Vicenza Stone is usually discarded due to its two-tone properties. But here one sink was dedicated to each of the two colors. Thanks to the carrier construction (a further color variant) the sinks are accessible from all angles. Title: „Yi bèi“.

(December 2013) Products of every-day use as well as their mass production: that was the aim the student project „Flexible Stone – new paths in stone design“, which took place in the winter semester 2012/2013 at the Ferrara University. Lecturers were Raffaello Galiotto, Vincenzo Pavan, Veronica Dal Buono and Davide Turrini. Some of the works were presented in hall 7b of this year’s Marmomacc.

In a pdf brochure in Italian and English language which can be downloaded free of charge, the lecturers’ concept is expounded and students’ works are presented.

We show some of the prototypes whereby our selection is arbitrary and without assessment.
