MARMO QUOTIDIANO competition, promoted by Pibamarmi and aimed at developing new types of stone design, was awarded the ADI DESIGN INDEX 2018 selection in the "Research for the company" category. This prestigious recognition confirms and at the same time re-launches a design-driven innovation process that the company has been making for years with passion, technical expertise and investment capacity.
Proud of the result Pibamarmi thanks those who contributed to the success of the initiative.

The call for the competition consisted in two categories: Guest, where six designers such as Francesco Dell’Aglio, Daniele Della Porta, Gianluca Gimini, Filippo Protasoni, Omri Revesz, and Studio Lievito were invited to participate in; and Outsider, open to all under 30 designers. The Outsider section collected 13 projects by individual designers or projecting groups.

The competition outputs are selected and shown in a currently ongoing special exhibition of prototypes at Spazio Pibarmarmi and in a dedicated catalogue. All of them were inspired by the observation of a specific aspect of every-day life (sometimes through more intellectual filters) and then developed into a pragmatic and appropriate design, based on precise configurations, small in dimension and easy to manufacture.

In most of the submissions the apparent limitations linked to the nature of stone material itself become stimulating inputs to preserve the product functionality and to give a refined originality to the most elementary formal solutions. The projects selected during MARMO QUOTIDIANO competition are now in production and will constitute a brand-new segment of Pibamarmi commercial catalogue.
