When it comes to ways to process marble blocks, sawing is the most common technique. Being incised accurately by the machine, the marble board has the smooth profile while retaining its raw texture on fringes. 

Split Marble Collection regards the roughness from original material as the feature and makes use of regular cutting surfaces. The outcome boldly draws the contrast between opposing elements.


從礦山開採出的自然原石,在石材廠中以鋸切加工成規格板材,而邊緣的「自然粗獷開裂面」和剖面的「平滑石心」形成強烈差異,卻同時展示出石材本身豐富的紋理表現。Split Marble Collection 在石材製程中,看見自然和人工之間衝突卻共存的美感。










A collection of a table and a stool with irregular edges beneath is created by juxtaposing the marble pieces at gradually varying sizes. The layered shape creates an image of a deep cavern. Having stiff outlines along with presence of fragments, Split Marble Collection presents the contradictory aesthetics in marble pieces.


Split Marble Collection 為兩件系列邊几和矮凳,以機器切削的筆直邊角作為輪廓,對比著內側大理石的原始肌理;並以石材廠中常見的板材疊放方式為靈感,依照尺寸層疊,透過每一層的漸變,轉化為洞穴深入的意象。
