White Carrara marble is the focus of this young label which this year, has collaborated with not 1 but 10 designers on smaller pieces for its growing collection.

For years, Mario and Costanza Marsotto have dedicated themselves to their historic stone carving family business, until a chance meeting with James Irvine, a designer with a precise design language, led to the idea to create a new label.

Based entirely on white Carrara marble, Marsotto edizioni launched at the Marmomacc fair in October 2009 with its first collection of multifunctional pieces, and made its public debut at Milan Design Week in 2010.

The products are made using a combination of ancient artisanal techniques and high technology, and while designed for everyday use, hold within them a sense of surprise and on occasion – irony.

The focus is on smaller items to diversify the collection with all designers pushing the use of marble to unexpected, sculptural conclusions whilst staying true to the philosophy of objects for practical and daily use.
