Carrara is a collection of two seating elements playing on a versatile approach of design between sculpture and function.

The formlessness and ambiguity of their shapes are evocative of an otherness suggesting a breach of the natural and the familiar, all while maintaining functionality. They provoke a cognitive dissonance when the cold aspect of the marble-like texture becomes soft and comfortable upon use.

A smooth block of marble, a calcified recumbent effigy, creatures lying passively or moving gooey entities: they carry a certain fiction- lingering between real and surreal, materiality and imagination- within the domestic landscape.
