The Ondamarmo series by Federica Elmo for Bloc studios includes 6 objects: The extra large dining table, two smaller size tables, three shelves, and a tray designed as an evolution of the shapes of the Onda metal tables from 2017. Onda is an exploration of Industrial finishes applied to expressive forms inspired by water and sea life producing a visual clash. Bringing the same approach of Onda to a higher level with marble enhancing a strong almost liquid plasticity, these rounded and smooth shapes are combined with the finishing study that the designer is conducting on surface transformation and image transfer on organic materials.
For Ondamarmo, the designer developed, together with industry specialists, a 3D inkjet printing with liquid paint, completely new processing.
The Challenge is to hybridize the surface of the marble by working on transferring images that play with the ambiguity of fiction and reality.
The aim of this project is to investigate on textures and color reflections also as a ploy to elevate second-choice marble slabs into something unique and precious.
Shipping & Returns
Based in: Carrara
Based on the emerging vision of marble that involves re-thinking functional design out of industrial excess, Bloc studios is built on the ideas of international collaborations and in-house designed pieces.
The brand was founded in Carrara in 2014 by Sara Ferron Cima and Massimo Ciuffi with the intention of transforming raw, natural stones into thoughtful everyday objects while preserving the inherent qualities of the marble.
Following the philosophy that every piece of marble contains a unique story waiting to be revealed, each piece is a unique one.
