moreno ratti is an italian architect and designer that has been specializing in the context of marble since 2013. nowadays, carrara white marble is considered more and more to be sold per ton that ever before. usually, the blocks are covered with resin to increase the stress resistance imparted by cutting machines used to obtain slabs or around two to three-centimeter thickness. the italian designer has created the ‘suspended collection’ for marmo triology, referencing this process. the intention was to emphasize the material and the artisan know-how to obtain unique and not replicable objects.the marble pieces are achieved by using waste material coming from coring. the resin used symbolizes the discarded pieces called spectrum.
