Bloc Studios, Collection n°1 Marmo Domestico designed by Thévoz — Choquet.

“Bloc is an Italian brand, founded in 2014 and directed by Sara Ferron Cima and Massimo Ciuffi, with the desire to transform natural stone into thoughtful everyday objects.

Marmo Domestico presents a range of domestic objects designed by Thévoz — Choquet. This collection aims to re(use) excess parts of industrially salvaged marble blocs in the quarries of Carrara. Bloc is proud to source locally resulting in a collection entirely Made in Italy, highlighting the craftsmen know-how and expertise from extraction to surface treatments of the final products.

The objects presented pay tribute to the material itself in a very concise and geometric way. Marble carries not only the idea of luxury and exclusivity, but prides itself to convey historical values and notions of technical achievements that are part of a long-lasting tradition of craftsmen.”
