Gumdesign sets the new creative direction for Savema Spa. Starting from the experience of La Casa di Pietra, declined on functional and poetic coverings, the first 6 new collections dedicated to materials are born: Corchia marble meets vegetable-tanned leather, inlaid wood, natural and toasted cork, acid-etched brass and woven willow to tell new stories about architecture. An important beginning to discover new, innovative and experimental features dedicated to living, accommodation and hospitality; places and paths that combine together and suggest new ways of interpreting the living space.
The first 6 collections presented at Marmomac 2022 include the use of as many natural materials combined with Corchia marble (material coming out from quarries owned by Savema) processed with several techniques and technologies developed by the company; the present collections are born with the use of Corchia marble but, obviously, the stone support can change at final customer’s request, as well as the several declinations of combined materials; standard size of the slabs is 75×100 cm and allows an easy application on vertical surfaces. The present – and future – collections are born with the use of Corchia marble. The stone support can change at the request of the end customer, as can the numerous material variations of the complementary materials.
A poetic and functional collection that contaminates marble with metal – declined in numerous material and surface options – to generate vertical storage surfaces
This collection was born during the first visit to the company when we discovered a very large “materioteca”, placed in a container; a 3D poem in the large yard opens to new imaginary worlds.
A decorative and functional collection that contaminates marble with willow to generate unique vertical surfaces; Twisted elements recalling picnic baskets define three-dimensional supports.
The stratification of the territory, the mountains and the attention to the acoustic function suggest the design path; staggered surfaces receive cork blades, material and decorative scanning implemented by the natural features of the materials to achieve performance walls.
The observation of the territory, the Apuan Alps and the attention to the preciousness of the raw material suggest the design path; like tree leaves, numerous fragments of inlaid wood land on the slightly diamond-shaped surface of marble, honed like a wall washed by the water of the mountains.
As if they were polished pages of a marble notebook, vertical and horizontal lines draw the surface generating a rhythmic scan, a grid that becomes the alphabet itself.
