Monolith marble tableware is a new project by product designer Shira Keret.The project was first presented at Tokyo designers week in Oct 2013.
Water erosion is a process that happens in nature, it can take thousands of years for water to carve its way through rock. The streams intensity and the type of rock will determine the shapes.
When tweaking the industrial process of water jet cutting the stream will carve it’s way to the bottom, not necessarily in a straight line. This way, it takes a matter of seconds to mimic the natural process and morphology in small scale.
Although the technical drawing for the machine are 2D and extremely basic, this process makes the final shapes unpredictable, organic and one of a kind.
The project includes a set of carrara marble objects: serving plates and vessels that examines the morphology of rock shaped by water.
