Evoking a contemporary architectural landscape with Greek origins, the unique pieces combine the precision of canonical proportions born from the use of the golden ratio and the noblest material, marble.
Each piece were hand carved from two types of marble blocks, either Arabescato fantastico, a vibrant white marble with dark grey veins or black Nero Marquino, a unique material that presents stroke-like, milky white veins. After a long time of research, Lagerfeld and D’Amman opted for this two types in order to illustrate the magnificent and noble nature of this material.
Shifting between the antique and the contemporary, the icons of classics and the finest present skills, the black and white architectonic creations embody Karl Lagerfeld’s timeless monochromatic style.
