Inlay Collection

Nick Ross is a designer based in Stockholm, Sweden. His research focuses on the complex repertoire of history, particularly ancient history, where he finds  the factors with which to interpret the relationship between the user and contemporary design. Using storytelling as a pretext and applying an always critical approach, Nick Ross is interested in investigating facts and happenings that have determined specific cultural balances; every project comes from the desire to create ideal or real bridges between the present society and that of the past.

The collection includes a chair, a coffee table and two side tables in a stripped down minimal style.The collection for Bloc studios is inspired by the coloured marble inlay floors popularized by the Romans in the ‘opus sectile’ style and later reintroduced during the Italian Renaissance in the form of ‘pietra dura’ work.
