New Volumes

Collection Showcases the Sculptural Versatility of Elba Marble

One of the things that caught our eye at this year’s Milan Design Week was “New Volumes”, the inaugural homeware collection by Australian stone and tile supplier Artedomus which was part of the Local Milan exhibition at 5 Vie district. Not only were we enthralled by the collection’s polished elegance, playful forms and exquisite craftsmanship, but we were also intrigued by the premise behind it: each collection is going to be based on a single natural material with the aim of pushing its boundaries.

Powered by a distinct assembly of 8 stellar Australian designers, the New Volumes first collection explores Elba marble, a sumptuous bluish stone featuring cool grey tones and soft brown markings which was exclusively sourced from a quarry in northern Greece where the stone is richer in hue and texture than common varieties.
