Marble is a classic, timeless material. Since the sculpture was invented, marble was the perfect material to express the artist's vision. Over the centuries, marble was used only as a scupture material, as a decoration for furniture pieces (as a tabletop) and to produce small decorative pieces (chalices; press papier; etc)
In the contemporary times, when materials are reinveted or rediscovered and new materials are discovered at high speed, the marble shine through its proprieties: naturalness, elegance and durability. With the help of new technologies the marble starts a new life in a very new way. Thin slabs and large surfaces, complicated shapes in 2D or 3D cut or carved perfectly and a new way of thinking towards marble make it as one of the preffered material in these days.
