Inspired by photographer Carl Kleiner's "Postures" series (2014) in which stems were positioned and then captured — dancing and unruly — atop plinths using fine metal supports. Part of a collection developed by Kleiner in collaboration with Bloc Studios.
Founded by Sara Ferron Cima and Massimo Ciuffi in 2014, and based in Carrara, Italy, Bloc Studios transforms industrial excess (i.e., offcuts from marble quarries ) into thoughtful, functional design. Each piece is unique and carefully preserves the inherent properties of the marble from which it is fashioned.
