Loris was inside a magnificent block of marble extracted at 1300 meters above sea level, in a quarry on a mountain overlooking the sea: this marble is called Arabescato Corchia and now is a table.

Barsi Marmi asked the studio michbold to design an object that would represent the company’s commitment to quality of design as well as the high quality of the raw material.

Loris arises from the idea of disturbing the shape directly from the inside, creating a product showing the latency present in the block of marble itself.

Starting from the hexagonal module (directly derived from Barsi Marmi’s corporate image grid) and the six equilateral triangles that generate it, michbold suggests an alternative to the classical project disarticulating Loris and proposing a subsequent re-composition.

Loris has been made with numerical control machines, controlled and finished by artisans concentrating centuries of experience in their own hands.

We return to the classical approach of the marble sculpture: this table is no longer made by the addition of individual components, but Loris represents the precise and progressive subtraction from the “unicum” of the raw material to the, final, shiny, designed shape.
