Pieruga proudly creates elegant accessories and complements in marble through artisanal processes, bringing into dialogue ancient techniques of sculpture with advanced technologies. 100% handmade in Italy. Our mission is a clear signal of opposition to the enormous waste that occurs in the extraction and processing of large blocks of marble, tons of material are discarded and thrown, in disfigurement to the generosity of our mountains. Rediscovering the ancient art of manual sculpture we give new life to even the smallest fragment of marble, bringing to light its millenary beauty that is lost in more than 2000 years of architecture and sculpture.

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.
