Cuscini

In Italian, the word "Cuscini" means cushions and this texture is designed as a juxtaposition of the softness of a cushion and the hard material of stone. Part of the Soft Marble Collection designed by Ron Gilad, Cuscini displays the versatility of natural stone and can be installed as a feature wall or as a piece of art in its own right. Cuscini tiles are packed in sets of four, completed by a stone "button", which creates the cushion effect. “This experience working on the Soft Marble Collection was intriguing, as I tend never to start a project from ‘the material’. Materials are part of the execution and usually ‘join in’ when the concept is more firmed up. That's why the starting point of working with Salvatori placed me on unstable ground forcing me to dig and hopefully learn and discover the DNA of the material”. Ron Gilad
