When we think of marble, we think of classical Italian sculptors, chiseling realistic statues out of massive slabs during the Rennaisance.
But that’s old news.
These six tables show how artisans are using marble for functional and decorative accents. Instead of simply chiseling, Wescover creators are pushing the physical and traditional boundaries of marble as a material.
Robert’s designs explore geometry, volume, and reflection in unexpected ways. The Gibbous Side Table shows novel material and color combinations of marble and wood. The texture of the marble mirrors the wood grain, creating a dynamic object that remains in motion as the viewer engages it.
The thin marble appears skin-like, tense and tight. Babled Designs is transforming the marble slab! This form creates an illusion of endlessness. The inside and the outside of the table transition seemlessly.
Dark marble is used for the legs of this Carnac table. The glass tabletop doesn’t obscure the legs but balances precariously on top of them. GOFI carefully considers density and opacity in this piece.
Marquart prizes simplicity and precision as essential elements in his designs. Form follows function in this marble table. Details emerge from the materials themselves.
This table is offered with a Carrara marble top, cut to order at Croft House in Southern California. Croft House encompasses the sophisticated, relaxed feel of the California lifestyle through their simple and organic execution of this piece.
This Quark table is part of the same Babled series as the Origin table pictured above. The series combines traditional Italian marble craftsmanship with the use of digital tools. Technological precision gives the table’s form and pushes the material’s capabilities.
