Collezione Sospesa by Moreno Ratti
My obsession with all things marble continues, this time finding its focus on a new trio of minimalist vases designed by Moreno Ratti for Marmo Trilogy. Crafted in Carrara marble and blocks of resin, Collezione Sospesa would perfectly offset showy springtime blooms now that the season has arrived.
Ratti is an Italian designer who works almost exclusively in marble. Having been born in the city of Carrara, one could argue that fate left him little choice in the matter.
Collezione Sospesa is a play on the common practice of coating marble in resin to increase its strength before it's cut. By choosing to emphasize the resin material that would normally be cast away, Ratti creates an entirely new form.
