Daniel Volpi: marble is versatility

Daniel Volpi, recent design graduate from Politecnico di Milano: marble is versatile and very Italian

Authentic Natural Stone is a living material that is highly appreciated for its thousand possible applications. From architecture to interior design, up to the kitchen, the many variants of stone offer a thousand different interpretations. Marble, granite, travertine and other stones are living materials, which offer multiple possibilities of use and change their appearance depending on the use.

Daniel Volpi, recent design graduate from Politecnico di Milano, talks about the versatility of marble. “Marble – he explains – is an extremely versatile material. Moreover, Italy is a country where marble has always been widely used in architecture, developing very advanced technological innovation in marble processing. As a young designer, I’m very happy to live in a country where marble will continue to fill my profession with beauty.”

Italy is synonymous with marble

“I’d say that this is true: Italy has always had a close relationship with marble, thanks to which it has entered our daily life. In our country, cultural and religious places usually have marble floors and surfaces. To a student, as I was until recently, I’d certainly suggested to broaden their knowledge of marble because it is a material that has many varieties, which must be studied extensively. Moreover, knowledge allows you to use the material consciously and design better.”
