Studio KO reinvents marble for Bisazza

Taking inspiration from the classic Italian tradition the French architects Karl Fournier and Olivier Marty, founders of Studio KO. The imagery aimed at Pompeii and the floors of the Basilica of San Marco, the interiors of Gio Ponti and Piero Portaluppi, and the contemporary-oriented gaze, have given life to a line of decorations for marble cladding in collaboration for the first time with Bisazza. Previewed on the occasion of Paris Déco Home during the Parisian design week, the new one Studio KO collection interprets the natural elegance of marble in a contemporary version.

«For us, marble is a material of choice, present in almost all of our projects», comment the architects, «due to its millenary tradition and its contemporary nobility, it remains an infinite source of creativity and innovation». From an unprecedented combination of geometric figures and plays of light and shadow, they come to life Module 1, Module 2 and Module 3, three decorations with a modernist aesthetic, each proposed in as many color variants: Chiaroscuro, Monochrome and Polychrome. Strong is the reference to the algorithm in Module 1, which takes shape from a sequential repetition of three rectangles. In Module 2, on the other hand, the protagonists are the triangles which give rise to a pattern similar to the texture of a fabric. Finally, Module 3 is characterized by the figure of circle which, with its enveloping shape, dialogues with the veins of the marble.

For the patterns, add Fournier and Marty, «we were deeply inspired by Italy. In each of its regions, it expresses an incredible variety of different marbles, colors and styles. For us architects who love sobriety, the homage to this mineral treasure passes through a domestic and modernist elaboration, which reinterprets its codes, uses and often functions ».
