Marble is a natural material, every piece is unique as each marble block is different in veins and color shades. All of our creations are handmade by Italian artisans and can slightly vary in shape and size. This is to be considered as a guarantee of a handmade object. Every piece is signed by hand.
Marble is sensitive to liquids of acid nature. Contact, especially if prolonged, with substances such as wine, lemon, vinegar, fruit juices, cola and alcohol can stain the surface. Cleaning should be carried out with a soft sponge, water and neutral detergent. Do not use metallic or abrasive sponges, do not wash in dishwasher, do not use in microwave. After hand-rinsing the marble, its color can undergo variations due to the humidity trapped in the superficial micro-pores. Once fully dried, it will regain its original color.

About the brand
Pieruga Marble by Barberini & Gunnell:
ELEGANT ACCESSORIES AND ARTISANAL MARBLE DESIGN PIESES, WHICH COMBINE ANCIENT SCULPTURE TECHNIQUES WITH THE MOST ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES
Pieruga Marble is a new brand by Barberini & Gunnell. The Atelier Barberini & Gunnell was founded by the architects and designers Francesco Barberini and Nina A. Gunnell as the result of a passion followed for a long period of time, creating artworks far from the industrial reality; one-off pieces and limited editions. The choice of the best and most precious materials, the maniacal cure for detail are the basis of their modus operandi aiming to create timeless pieces.
Every artwork has its inspirational background, it’s story. Gigantic Spiders as tables which pass by the forests of enormous Mangrove Floor lamps, transparent, yet heavy glass Origami tables, Chained up tables which seem to revolt against the immobility of the four legs. Abandoning the mere functionality and rediscovering emotions; from the warm perfume of wood, losing oneself in the transparent magic of crystal to the cold and sterile steel, thought by mankind for mankind, mirror polished symbol of progress. Barberini & Gunnell work with auction houses like Sotheby's, Bonhams, Tajan, Dorotheum, international galleries, private clients and collectors.
Artworks by Barberini & Gunnell have been exhibited at Artbasel Design Miami, PAD London, Salon Art + Design NY, PAD Monaco, ArtMiami and PAD Genève.
