Rise - Marble Stories

The project explores an archetype of architecture, the staircase, transporting it into a place of estrangement, building a small geometric universe that manipulates the visitors’ perception and their relationship with the surrounding space.
The idea is a collection of marble furniture that exists in this environment of constant movement, where these objects rest on the shape of the steps. As the furniture is placed on a flat surface, they are integrated with black Marquina marble elements that fill the bases and bring us back to the dynamics of this place.

Meet the Creator

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Gustavo Martini got awarded as Next Generation Designer of The Year 2017 by Wallpaper* and Officine Panerai. His interest in arts began at a young age with drawings, paintings and construction toys that naturally became his profession. During his graduation, he won the Idea Brazil Award and has continued to receive increased media attention as a young upcoming Brazilian author. On his Studio at the very first year, he was invited to exhibit at the Miami Art. As he has lived the majority of his life in Rio, Martini has a strong sense of connection with the city which he believes combines two contrasting worlds. This includes the metropolis with all the chaos and vertical grey landscape together with the surrounding rain forest and hidden waterfalls. Currently, Martini lives in Milan after completing a Master graduation at Istituto Marangoni where he became I’M ambassador. By working with strong identity, he has being known by his ability to produce either products or art installations worldwide. His greatest passion is to create, with complete freedom of expression. Martini typically spends the days exploring concepts, forms and volume to create a stripped experimental language that creates a unique style that can be easily recognized. Recently he collaborated with Giulio Cappellini other than having presented a sculpture at the Venice Arsenale, participated in Art markets like Piasa and also ADA which is a project by the art advisor from Floridi Doria Pamphilj family and also presented an installation for Alcantara in the renowned MAXXI museum in Rome.
