The force of a block of marble
Each single element, directly created from quarried blocks of marble, is polished and carved both by hand as well as by advanced machine technology. The final product looks as if shaped by nature itself, and yet the millennial long tradition of the hand of the craftsman is evident in the final product.
icube is part of the barbeCUBE system, initially proposed by Alberto Franchi, who worked in collaboration with Archizero Studio to design and develop a sectional modular scheme of four marble elements.
Its version of black Zebrino was presented at Verona Marmomacc 2012, and at the Exhibition event of Interni – HYBRID ARCHITECTURE&DESIGN on the occasion of Milan's Design Week 2013, within the SenSai installation.
The four blocks of black Zebrino include iCube and Goccia washbasins (with Gessi stainless steel taps and fittings), a kitchen counter top, and a Teppanyaki outdoor gas grill.
