Stratifications is a collection of five objects – a mirror with base, a desk organizer, two trays and a bookmark – made of marble or granite. Part of a global reflection by Krzysztof J. Lukasik on marble work begun some years ago, Stratifications is based on the complementarity between the simplicity of the forms and the sophistication and intensity proper to the texture of laminated marble.

“One of my main goals is to rid marble of the heaviness it is often associated with in funeral monuments and to make it more suitable for the modern interiors.” says Lukasik. “Stratifications also result from a collaboration with a marble mason. This technique of laminated marble is a way to break the massive aspect of marble by slicing it and also to use otherwise unused scraps, just like with glued laminated wood.”

“It also allows to bring forth the graphic aspect of marble by breaking the linear pattern of the natural veining. Stratifications is rather an echo of the natural stratified appearance of marble as found in quarries, before being transformed.”
