Lex Pott is an Amsterdam based designer born in 1985 and he conquered us with his furniture design marble tables which employs a raw and intuitive method. He graduated cum laude in 2009 at the Design Academy Eindhoven and he is currently working in the Netherlands.
In his work, he returns to the origin of the materials he uses most: wood, stone and metal. He does not hide his designs under indirect layers, but reduces them to their very essence.
This series os design marble tables that inclues from dining tables to side tables or a bookcase was nominated: Fragments. Fragments is an immersive display of Lex Pott’s new work in stone framed by a custom handmade gradient wallcovering made from the same stone by Nicholas and Rachel Cope of Calico Wallpaper. This project is created in collaboration with The Future Perfect founder David Alhadeff.
Pott’s inspiration for the Fragments collection originated from the way rocks at a quarry fracture and break; along natural veining and fissures inherent in the material. By preserving the stone offcuts in its brutal raw form, and then fusing them with opposing, highly polished glass surfaces, the resulting pieces poetically and provocatively toe the line between design and art.
The raw look of the stone drives us to have a little of nature inside ou house.

Three of Pott’s pieces – tables in various sizes with planes of glass disruptively wedged in between – are made from Belgian bluestone, while the fourth piece, a shelf, features layers of different marbles (Nero Marquina, Verde Rajasthan, Rouge, Giale and Bianco Carrera).
