Marble Accessories by Gum Design
Some may say marble has been suffering from overexposure in recent years as designers have embraced the material for a whole host of unexpected uses, from lighting to jewellery. It is undeniable that, in the right hands, the cool elegance of marble can imbue even mundane objects with a sense of preciousness and nobility.
Take, for instance, the collection of marble accessories by Gum Design, the multi-disciplinary design studio founded by Laura Fiaschi and Gabriele Pardi. We especially like the Fossili family of abstract animals made from marble and steel. Effortlessly cool and very stylish.
