The exhibition “Hybrid and Flexible” set up by Cibic Workshop showcased some of the most remarkable works from Marmomacc Meets Design 2009 by internationally famous designers and marble companies.
‘Macrosterias’ by Patricia Urquiola for Budri is an installation which represents the metamorphic use of marbles and stones of different origins – a female essence in chemical composition and colours.
The project arose from the observation of vegetal micro-organisms – micrasterias – whose forms mixed with graphic symbols create a new digital-biological entity.
Marsotto Edizioni is a growing collection which started with designs of James Irvine in 2008. This year the collection was enlarged with creations by Konstantin Grcic, Naoto Fukasawa and others.
