Architect meets innovations
25-26 January 2017 / Olympia London - Stand 95
“MOS Student Residency 2017 International competition sponsored by MOS Matter of Stuff, took place from 20 to 25 March 2017 between Carrara and Montalcino which was attended by 20 students selected from Kingston College and the University of the Arts London Camberwell. Thanks to our collaboration with Ma.C.S., students have been able to visit the quarry of Arabescato and Calacatta Vagli (Lucca), study closely the machinery and technologies involved in the production of marble and attending lectures given by professionals, who explained their experience in the marble and in the design of a product which must follow the experts guidelines. The workshop this year has focused on the use of particular marble waste to create objects and articles for the tableware. The goal was to combine the ideas of these international designers with the Italian marble handicrafts. An experience whose aim is the exchange and relationships to create an original production of unique or limited edition design pieces.
