The project aims to initiate new forms of
use, manufacturing and personalization of products in
stone and develop collaborative platforms with
customers in order to build products to order.
The research is aimed at providing services related to
the analysis and prototyping of stone products for
industry and designers involved in the fields of
architecture and design. Artifacts with a strong
sculptural impact and low environmental footprint were
created from shapeless blocks and off-cut slabs
otherwise destined for disposal. This approach has also
increased public perception of the value of marble and
stone from the Puglia region.
This corporate research project also provides a useful
starting point on how design, intended as a set of
knowledge, skills, values and culture, represents a strategic
lever to facilitate the transition from tradition to innovation.
