Pieruga proudly creates elegant accessories and complements in marble through artisanal processes, bringing into dialogue ancient techniques of sculpture with advanced technologies. 100% handmade in Italy.
Our mission is a clear signal of opposition to the enormous waste that occurs in the extraction and processing of large blocks of marble, tons of material are discarded and thrown, in disfigurement to the generosity of our mountains.
Rediscovering the ancient art of manual sculpture we give new life to even the smallest fragment of marble, bringing to light its millenary beauty that is lost in more than 2000 years of architecture and sculpture.
Pieruga marble is a new brand by Barberini & Gunnell.
The Atelier Barberini & Gunnell was founded by the architects and designers Francesco Barberini and Nina A. Gunnell
The artworks by Barberini & Gunnell are regularly shown at international art fairs, such as PAD London, PAD Genève, PAD Monaco, Salon Art + Design New York, Art Miami.
Marble is a natural material, every piece is unique as each marble block is different in veins and color shades. All of our creations are handmade by Italian artisans and can slightly vary in shape and size. This is to be considered as a guarantee of a handmade object.
All Pieruga objects are made of precious and natural marbles and onyx. Marble is sensitive to acid-based liquids, especially a prolonged contact with substances such as wine, lemon, vinegar, fruit juices, cola and alcohol can stain the surface.
Cleaning should be carried out with a soft sponge, water and neutral detergent. Do not use metallic or abrasive sponges, do not wash in the dishwasher, do not use in the microwave. The color of the marble after washing can undergo variations due to the humidity trapped in the surface’s micro-pores. Once fully dried it will regain its original color. The brass inlays tend to oxidize over time, to make them return to shine again use a soft cotton pad soaked in a solution of water and traditional Marseille soap, gently rub over the brass inserts and rinse the surface thoroughly. We are against the use of chemical products, all Pieruga objects are processed and polished through long manual processes without the use of polishing liquids.

Based in: Ancona
The Atelier Barberini & Gunnell was founded by the architects and designers Francesco Barberini and Nina A. Gunnell as the result of a passion followed for a long period of time, creating artworks far from the industrial reality; one-off pieces and limited editions.
The choice of the best and most precious materials, the maniacal cure for detail are the basis of their modus operandi aiming to create timeless pieces.
Every artwork has its inspirational background, it’s story.
Gigantic Spiders as tables which pass by the forests of enormous Mangrove floor lamps, transparent, yet heavy glass Origami tables, Chained up tables which seem to revolt against the immobility of the four legs.
Abandoning the mere functionality and rediscovering emotions; from the warm perfume of wood, losing oneself in the transparent magic of crystal to the cold and sterile steel, thought by mankind for mankind, mirror polished symbol of progress.
Barberini & Gunnell collaborate with the auction houses Sotheby’s, Bonhams, Tajan, Dorotheum, international galleries Priveekollektie, Ammann and private collectors.
The bench Get Lost! in mirror-polished stainless steel, limited edition of 12, was selected by New York architect Peter Marino for the DIOR flagship store in London.
