Agglomerati presents at ALCOVA 2021, MASS its first collection of functional art-objects made exclusively in stone, designed together with Australian furniture maker Fred Ganim.
Upon its extraction from the earth, marble is cut into large cubic volumes. MASS explores the reduction of these volumes, subverting the material’s inherent behaviours.
Grounded by its weight, the sheer mass of the material uses gravity as a structural force, cantilevering a system of moveable shelves so that they appear to float parallel to the ground. Each modular piece slots together, serving as lecterns, shelves or tables, and can be assembled in any number of variations.
