for Marsotto edizioni

A side table designed for Marsotto edizioni an Italian brand specialising in marble furniture. Noting that the manufacturing of furniture begins when slabs are cut out from one big block of marble, a marble block just as it stands became a side table. Although narrower than a conventional table, its base is sufficiently stable due to the weight of the marble. The tabletop is somewhat compact so one can effortlessly place a coffee mug or eyeglasses on top of it. In addition, a “notch” was cut out in one section where books and magazines can be inserted. Unlike furniture made out of wood or metal, the furniture does not have an “underside” since it is a block, and consequently it can be flipped to face a different direction.gap_sketch gap01_akihiro_yoshida gap02_akihiro_yoshida gap03_akihiro_yoshida gap04_akihiro_yoshida gap05_akihiro_yoshida gap06_akihiro_yoshida gap07_akihiro_yoshida gap08_akihiro_yoshida gap09_akihiro_yoshida gap10_akihiro_yoshida
