Natural stone, which contains the ore of nature, is not only a building element, thanks to new technologies and creative ideas; it has become a part of our daily life by being used in many different areas such as interiors, furniture and decorative objects. We have compiled the furniture and accessory designs shaped with natural stone material by leading designers from different parts of the world.
Who Said Marble is a Cold Material?
Bettogli, designed by Franchi Umberto Marmi, is a furniture collection consisting of sofas, armchairs and coffee tables shaped with marble. Marble back and armrests with sharp and continuous outlines in the design are combined with very comfortable cushions. Thus, the idea that marble is a cold and emotionless material was eliminated, and an elegant and warm experience was offered to the users.
“Vondel” is a coffee table collection designed by Lemon, which draws attention with its balance between aesthetics and function, and long-lasting furniture designs. Produced with travertine material, Vondel emphasizes the sense of permanence with its structural integrity and strong stance, while offering a timeless silhouette with its plain form and modern lines. Produced from travertine of different colors and textures, the collection stands on a fine line between a sculpture and an accessory.
Symbol of Quality and Durability
Perchoir, designed by Maxime Boutillier, who comprehensively evaluates the relationship between form and material in his designs, is a lighting design with modern lines, shaped by travertine and brass materials. Boutillier’s special production design, which aims to connect with the past of the space, has a sculptural aesthetic that emphasizes the tactile appeal and permanence of natural materials.
Elegant Touches on Marble
Shaped with marble, which is a symbol of elegance with its intense white veins on a pink background, Rocky is a coffee table designed by Ateliers Saint-Jacques. Artisanal furniture is produced using both traditional and modern techniques in the workshop, which consists of master craftsmen.
Craftsmanship, Sustainability and Transparency
Snug by Sanna Völker is a bespoke candlestick collection that aims to highlight local craftsmanship, quality materials and sentimental value. All the pieces in the design have been carefully selected from a quarry on a small mountain, some of which are 500 million years old natural stone residues. In the minimalist design that emphasizes the material itself, the candles are placed in a brutalist yet delicate way, reflecting the story of craftsmanship, sustainability and transparency.
Aura of Onyx and Volcanic Stone
Aura, designed by EWE Studio, is a lighting design made of four intertwined, crescent-shaped white onyx stones placed on a volcanic stone base. The top of the translucent and fully hand-engraved stone lighting shows the unique white veins and natural patterns of onyx. The volcanic stone base appears as if the light is emanating from the ground.
Reshape Your Living Spaces with Travertine
Dona, designed by the French designer Jimmy Delatour, is a furniture collection shaped with travertine material. In his collection of tables and stools, the designer aimed to highlight the material by using modern geometric forms, seeking to reshape living spaces.
Material that Softens with Form
Gousse is a console made of travertine material, designed by Maxime Boutillier. The designer, who is also an architect, emulates the fact that the floors of the buildings are wider than the upper floors, and shaped his design to expand as it touches the ground.
As one of the coffee table collections of Berlin-based design collective Labinac, produced with cut stone pieces, Green Forest Table is designed by Jimmie Durham. It draws attention with its table emphasizing the characteristic texture of green marble and the vitality of natural stone on aluminum legs.
