Marmo_2.0 exhibition by Raffaello Galiotto, Milan – Italy

May 13th, 2016 by retail design blog

An exposition curated by the designer Raffaello Galiotto known for his research in the stone field, which marks an epochal turning point in marble working Five very high level experimental marble works, designed with parametric software and exclusively made using numerical control machinery, to show that it is now possible to incite emotions through stone and reach unimaginable levels even without the direct touch of a human hand.

There is no lack of astonishment and poetry when faced with highly precise and complex, virtuous 3D works and, above all, the recovery and reduction in waste, one of the main aims of the initiative. The cutting edge use of technology – which can be considered a kind of digital scalpel – opens up new doors and marks a turning point compared to thousands of years of marble working tradition.

An exposition comprising marble objects made by some top Italian companies (Citco, Helios Automazioni, Intermac, Lithos Design, Marmi Strada), interesting explanatory videos of the production processes and extremely intuitive infographics allow even an untrained audience to understand and appreciate the revolutionary and experimental content of every design. These works are a continuation of the unrelenting innovative research being conducted in the stone field by the designer Raffaello Galiotto, also in association with the Verona Marmomacc trade fair, recently selected by the ADI Index for the Compasso d’Oro award in the “ricerca per l’impresa” (research for business) category.
