MORENO RATTI

When I was young I played with pieces of marble...like now.
There are a lot of marble around me...I'm searching new way to use it.

I was born in Carrara in 1982. From 2013 I devoted myself to design, specializing in the context of the marble.

MARMOMAC

Liquido, Solido, Litico_The Italian Stone Theatre

The idea comes up from the will to emphasize the contradictions of natural resource waste.
Here the marble is recovered and assembled to make a 3D module.
This module has been finished to highlight the contrast of the linear and geometric side with the random texture that emerge with the cnc machine.

LO STUDIO DELLA PIETRA

What can possibly sparks from the collision between young generation designers and manufacturers and the oldest material, marble?

Hualien has became the center of Taiwan marble industry, which is renowned for marble craft, interior decoration and architectural materials.
The challenge for the younger generation designers is to develop new aesthetics which reflect the contemporary social context.

CREATIVITÀ E ROBOTICA

The exhibition was a result of a workshop organized during the summer 2016 for a selected group of artists.
The main idea was to create works of art by using exclusively robot, 3D modeling, and diamond wire.
Robot becomes a tool for expression in the hands of an artist, in the same way traditional tools are.
However, by using only robot, it is possible to see imperfections and traces left by the machine on the marble surface, which in this case, become expressions of creativity itself.

COLLEZIONE AD INCASTRO

the idea was born from the will to recover the marble slabs, at different thickness, stored  in the warehouse. The slabs are cut by a waterjet, a high  precision machine that cut the marble with the force of water and silica sand and then the pieces are slot in together thanks to easy joints, in this way the simple 2d drawings become 3d objects designed for the everyday life. The slot-in method allows us to create design object that can be easily shipped and set up. Every costumers could choose the marble he prefers and costumizes the objects  for his needs.

ICEBERG

The idea born from the desire to focus the excessive use of water for marble processing.
Water that is lost during the production process and transformation of the stone material and cannot be recovered.
Marble is a porous material so the water put inside, like a sponge, can nourish the plant.
I tried to highlight this process with three photos, as the water level goes down, the plant cannot take
the necessary nourishment and it dies.
A bit like what is happening to us, we use more water than we should!

But what will happen when this water is no longer available?
