The furniture Extraction in Grand Antique Marble is inspired and directly relate to the carving of the marble, the craft of the stone extraction, the exploitation of a quarry. This simple gesture of slicing diagonally in the block gives life to the rock and creates a balance that seems unstable. This cavity plays with emptiness and mixes the references as brutalist architecture of the 70s or the 80s minimal design.
The Grand Antique marble is called by the history of furniture which loved it. From Antiquity to the Renaissance, and from the Baroque to the Art Deco, the styles have all employed it a lot for its chromatic radicalism and its symbolism of opposing forces.
