The crafting of waste
Italian designers Paolo Ulian and Moreno Ratti began collaborating about a year ago. Their favourite material is Carrara marble. But the key to their ingenuity is the use of discarded marble tiles in the design of all sorts of household objects. By employing the latest technology, they are able to achieve simplicity of form, concentrating on gesture to achieve minimal purity.
