In the family workshop where she grew up, designer and interior architect Raffaella Loï gives a second life to scraps of marble by creating furniture and objects with refined shapes.

A work, between sculpture and furniture, which has recently benefited from a nice spotlight. Raffaella Loï Design was indeed one of the 40 young designers selected by the Paris Design Week Factory, an event organized by the Maison & Objet fair. Today, it presents two of its collections, Pinces (made up of consoles and bedside tables) and Polygones (ends of sofas). She is also at the origin of Dominos, another emblematic line. 

Sensitive to the impact of man on the environment, Raffaella Loï relies on an eco-responsible approach. From design to production, she thinks her creations around recycling. Objects are thus born from unused materials, transformed to be sublimated ...

To create her furniture, Raffaella Loï composes shapes and colors. Its collections are games of geometric combinations where grain patterns and natural patterns create contrasting and balanced compositions.

The designer, who draws her inspiration from her Italian roots, likes minimalist and proportionate shapes. She imagines associations of materials that respond to each other and give the final form its unity.

Each piece thus highlights a combination of colors and different materials, and is a unique part of a limited edition series.

The elements of the Raffaella Loï Design collection are produced in Greater Paris by Décomarbre, the family marble factory, by qualified professionals and fellow marble workers. All the pieces, available for sale on the designer's online store, are signed and delivered with their certificate of authenticity.

His next collections will showcase other mixtures of materials: marble and wood, marble and metal, and marble and glass.
