Collaboration with Total Marble
BEFORMATIVE collaborated with TOTALMARBLE as part of the CRAFT KIOSK exhibition and conducted research on sustainable designs with supplies of recycled marble.
Since it is difficult to re-process marble blocks (which are damaged by impact during transport and processing) and small fragments after processing, they are mostly thrown away, causing huge costs and environmental problems.
We reflected the random shapes of broken marble and natural cracks into our work as design elements and designed lighting and paperweight by combining broken marble with glass.
Reflection Paperweight was designed by utilizing the broken marble’s appropriate weight and combining a transparent glass handle. This work is characterized by the texture of the broken marble that is magnified by glass. It was designed by structurally utilizing stainless steel so that the two materials go well with each other.
