Decorative panel-tub and sink for Vicentina Marmi and Marmomac
Marea is a sort of painting on a book-matched marble slate, a large moon which influences ocean swell, altering its level and shapes.
It’s a contemporary post-modern reinterpretation of those natural phenomena. It outlines profiles and silhouettes and once they are reflected they appear similar to a face and its expressions.
The shapes that are generated in the artistic act are isolated, simplified and embedded in a compositional operation, in order to give life to a tub and a sink.
The choice to maintain simple, almost rigorous shapes - which contrast the typical streaks of Orobic Arabesque - is to be intended as a gesture of consideration towards the lively and enchanting complexity and richness of colours of this material. Even the slightest inappreciable mistake, generated by a formal excess, would have surely risked to create confusion and to hide reliefs and decorations, which have the lead role in this case.
Material: Orobic Arabesque Marble
