the ‘retegui’, is a reinterpretation of 19th century café style furnishings by iratzoki. particular focus is tended to the harmony of marble and metal, colors and under frame finishes. the ‘bigun’ coffee table takes a slightly different approach, choosing instead to accentuate the contrast between hard and soft. moulded foam, which is upholstered with padded fabric, is finished with a thin slab of marble.

‘tanko’ is a clock that combines the simplicity of carrera white marble with full-grain leather from the rémi carriat tannery. its shape is a honorable nod to the bygone era of the milk watcher, a once kitchen staple now lost in time. sylvain willenz, likewise, enhances the 2015 collection with create and subtle use of the rich material. ‘alaka’ is a series of minimalist designs that includes shelving, mirrors, and wall hooks. bevelled edges and round, soft angles impart a lightness to the ever-lasting strength of marble.
