"Marmo Domestico" presents a range of domestic objects designed by Thévoz-Choquet. This collection aims to re(use) excess parts of industrially salvaged marble blocs in the quarries of Carrara. Bloc is proud to source locally resulting in a collection entirely Made in Italy, highlighting the craftsmen know-how and expertise from extraction to surface treatments of the final products.

Bloc was hosting an italian preview of “25 microns”, an interactive installation that uses 3D printed negatives and a projector to create an alternative way of engaging with objects in exhibitions.The visitors are able to intuitively interact with the projected images.By moving the negative, the users are able to get a better understanding of the three dimensional form and to focus on a certain parts of the object. This project has been designed by Clara Dalbéra,Kristian Knobloch and Martijn Rigters, from the Royal College of Arts in London (UK). For this occasion, Bloc created a marble projection surface and the device’s handle.
