For years, Mario and Costanza Marsotto have dedicated themselves to their historic family business. Through their natural curiosity, their friendships they research and explore new territories. James Irvine is a designer with a precise design language, proportions and signs which were waiting to be applied also to marble. The idea to create a new collection – Marsotto Edizioni – was born from the meeting between Marsotto and Irvine, thanks to the empathy between them and the fascinating power of an ancient and extraordinary material. All rigorously made out of White Carrara marble, the company only create products which are for everyday use but also surprising and sometimes ironic. Under the art direction of James Irvine, Marsotto Edizioni has become a collection of pieces which refer to an international culture, like the team of designers who enthusiastically take part in this project.
All the products comprising this collection have been constructed with great consideration and artisanship. They convey a feel of modernity while preserving the luxury gathered from nature and enhanced by human interpretation. At Milan’s Salone del Mobile 2012, Marsotto Edizioni showcased the latest pieces to join its collection – a series of large tables. Renowned designers like David Chipperfield, James Irvine, Jasper Morrison, Konstantin Grcic and Naoto Fukasawa have contributed to the set.
Marsotto is a venerable stone carving operation near Verona, Italy. Synonymous with excellent quality, Marsotto strongly believes in its business approach and has founded Marsotto Edizioni, the brand of its marble and stone interior design pieces. Marsotto is combining different design approaches in its collaboration with renowned international designers to create a growing collection. They are developed objects to use every day, made out of marble: a unique, noble material, rich with memories.
