Design as a way to upgrade and use stone „waste“


                                                         Moreno Ratti, Designer from Carrara, Italy


Being a designer from the Carrara region in Italy, Moreno Ratti knows well the problems with waste from the stone production. In the collection „40x40“ he developed a new use for stone-tile-discard in pieces of that size.

 

He will show many more ideas for reusing so called „waste“ from a material which indeed has a very high value.

 

One of his latest projects was a wokshop in design with Hualin Marble he held for the Stone and Resource Industry R&D Center in Taiwan. „It was a Great experience! Great People, Great Manufacturer and Great Material“, he reports.

 

Moreno was born in Carrara in 1982. He studied Architecture. Since 2013 he devoted himself to design, with his specialization in the context of the marble.
