MOS RESIDENTIAL DESIGN WORKSHOP | MARBLE

Applications are open for our upcoming residential workshop in marble in Carrara, Italy.
The workshop will take place between the marble quarries of Carrara, the marble facilities and OCRA Montalcino.
The residency will focus on marble waste use to create an object of tableware commissioned by Matter of Stuff.
The designers in residence will have 5 full days to come up with a great design.

Invited guests include Alessandro Zambelli, product designer; Moreno Ratti, designer focusing only on Marble products; Jasper Udink Ten Cate, chef and food design;Studio Irvine, designers and Marsotto Edizioni ex creative directors; Cristina Felici, archaeologist; Giovanni Cutolo, Artemide’s ex general director and ex President of Fondazione ADI Collezione Compasso d'Oro.

We will also visit Castello Banfi wineries and their museum of glass, experiencing first hand the process of wine making, while tasting some of the best Banfi wines.
To spice things up, an internal competition will be held, and the winning designs will be produced and exhibited with our gallery Matter of Stuff during London Design Festival 2018.
