Company takes on new star architects in the circle of its designers

Haute-Couture of natural stone was presented at the Salone del Mobile (April 12th to 17th 2016) by no lesser than Citco Company. As in the textile branch, it was all about creating spectacular pieces, not the prêt-à-porter.

In the past Citco hat worked closely with the recently deceased architect Zaha Hadid. This year the circle of partners was extended to include a number of star architects. According to a press release, the common theme was „stripping marble of its material weight and making it seem light, versatile, easy to shape“.
