The exhibition, organized by Marmomacc fair in cooperation with a selected range of manufacturers, will be opened for the Milan Design Week and will continue until after the beginning of Expo 2015. Università degli Studi di Milano, 13th April – 24th May.
The exhibition aims to emphasise the excellence of Italian stone industry, enhancing its special characteristics such as the profound knowledge of the materials and of their processing techniques, as well as an ethic approach to the material itself, to waste control and to energy saving; indeed, this creative and production philosophy have become vital in order to enhance the true value and modern charm of natural stone.
The amazing experimental works created by Raffaello Galiotto, who is both the designer and the curator of the whole exhibition, will foreground some specific aspects of the most advanced manufacturing techniques, masterly applied thanks to the collaboration between outstanding processing companies and manufacturers of avant-garde machinery and technology.
Retina by Lithos Design
Retina will be the name of the work showcased by Lithos Design, a moulded and pierced panel that may function as a decorative partition created by means of diamond-wire cutting. The juxtaposition of undulated and rotated paths automatically brings forth a 3D perforated shaping characterized by a surprising aesthetic lightness, without any handwork and, in addition, containing material waste.
Together with Lithos Design, the following companies will participate in the exhibition: Budri, Decormarmi, Antolini, Omag, Odone Angelo, Intermac.
