Marmomacc - the most important international natural stone industry show ranging from architecture and design with stone to stone processing machinery – is scheduled in Verona on 30 September - 3 October 2015 in conjunction with Abitare il Tempo, the interior design and furnishing event.
DIGITAL LITHIC DESIGN show is organized by with the contribution of the leaders of the sector.
Developed by designer and curator Raffaello Galiotto, DIGITAL LITHIC DESIGN looks deeper into marble, as a natural material that cannot be reproduced and that must therefore be processed while equally limiting waste and use of energy. New technologies can make an important contribution, if they are involved in the creative-design process, towards the production of items with strong three-dimensionality and complexity with minimal waste of resources. The exhibition aims to highlight, through a number of Works, the potential of technological excellence, processing capacity and creativity in the Italian natural stone industry.
As the heir to an ancient marble working tradition, Italy still ranks as a landmark capable of merging design, technology and processing skills. New computer-controlled engineering systems and digital design today define a new frontier for this ancient material, thereby opening up new ways for designing and working natural stone.
