A tray formed of a slab of dramatic marble flanked by a bracket of dark iron.
Available in inky black Nero Marquinia, this stark, masculine piece is ideal as a desk organiser, a kitchen accessorie or a serving platter.
Piero Lissoni has taken everyday items for the home and reinterpreted them in novel ways, using Salvatori’s exceptional natural stone as the starting point. Transforming a tray from a banal, functional object into an arresting, elegant feature piece.
With offices in Milan and New York, Lissoni & Partners has a thirty-year history in developing international projects in the fields of architecture, landscape, interior, product and graphic design, in addition to being responsible for the art direction for some of the most influential design companies.
Led by Piero Lissoni, the practice combines a range of expertise with an holistic and tailored approach that sets it apart, establishing a stylistic code and a visual identity that are clearly and instantly recognizable.
His work is inspired by a sense of rigor and simplicity and is characterized by a regard to detail, coherence and elegance with particular attention to proportion and harmony.
Recognized as one of the masters of contemporary design, he has worked with many international design brands, and has received a series of international awards, including the Good Design Award, the Red Dot Award and the Compasso d’Oro ADI.
Salvatori is an award-winning Italian design company specialising in natural stone, drawing on the very best of Made in Italy values and cutting-edge engineering and technological know-how, fusing old-fashioned craftsmanship with contemporary design.
Since 1946, Salvatori has worked closely with architects, designers and builders to provide not only practical support, but also inspiring new ways to work with stone which often challenge traditional thinking.
Whilst many of their products are the result of partnerships with internationally noted designers, what lies at the heart of all they do is a deep-rooted passion and respect for the inherent beauty of natural stone, and its defining characteristic: that no two pieces can ever be identical, meaning that every single product has its own unique history.
Salvatori’ head office is in Northern Tuscany, four kilometres from the coast and less than 30 minutes from the imposing quarries which are home to the famed Carrara marble. Every product is produced locally.
Innovation is entrenched in the DNA of the company. As early as in 1950 ,founder Guido Salvatori invented the Spaccatello finish, and the next generations continued this innovative story. Almost every machine used to create the exclusive textures for which they are known was invented by the now CEO Gabriele Salvatori and his father Alfredo.
