purapietra as a design line extending from moscato marmi. born out of the italian marble company’s expertise in natural stone, and quality workmanship, purapietra products are all realized — from raw material to finished piece — at its san lazzaro di savena quarry near bologna, italy.

in their first collaboration with the brand, paolo ulian and moreno ratti have developed a family of washbasins which are characterized by the fragmentation of an optical surface. the ‘diamond’ washbowls feature clearly cut triangles, expressing a faceted surface that has been born out of the iconography of a typical gemstone. each one has been realized with a slight incline of its rim, giving visual lightness to a material that is historically heavy.

the ‘diamond’ washbasins are available in two sizes: ∅ 50cm x H18 cm, and ∅ 45 cm x H 15 cm ; and comes in different colored stone. the first prototype debuts at milan design week 2015.
