CHRISTINA CELESTINO PRESENTS
HYBRID LIVING WITH MARBLE OF MARGRAF
Cristina Celestino started a new collaboration with Margraf, a leading company
in the extraction and processing of marble. In connection with the 55th edition of
Marmomac – a leading stone expo in Verona, Italy – Cristina Celestino curated the design of
the company’s booth, and presented the Rèpere project for the “In our time” exhibition
in collaboration with Margraf. See for yourself what hybrid living with marble can look like!
REPERE – ULTIMATE HYBRID LIVING
Cristina Celestino: “The project I conceived for the ‘In Our Time’ exhibition, designed in collaboration with Margraf, lies in a hybrid interior-exterior space, for self-care, a place to take your time and experiencing direct contact with stones and water.“ The Geode Collection is also included in these spaces, whereby the dimensions and colors of the washbasin, shower tray and planter are fully adapted to the wall coverings and floors of Repère.
MARBLE – ULTIMATE HYBRID MATERIAL
Repère is also the name of the wall and floor covering designed through marble studs placed on slight concavities of the marble slab generates a motif that draws on Canova’s technique of duplicating casts through a grid of small nails. A contemporary concept, achieved thanks to advanced processing techniques and the centennial experience of Margraf, who wants to recount the story of marble and its potential.
