The “Fragment” collection by Gwenael Nicolas, Curiosity Tokyo
At the forthcoming Milan Design Week, Budri will present Fragment, the new collection of furniture and surfaces with a sustainable soul, designed by designer Gwenael Nicolas of Curiosity Tokyo, former designer of the Marmor Natvm Collection, presented in 2019.
The collection stems from Budri’s continuous research aimed at studying design solutions for marble surfaces and furnishings, with particular attention to sustainability. A long journey begun in 2010 by the Research & Development division – with important interventions and collaborations with fashion and high jewellery companies – that today reaches its peak in the study of new technologies, processing techniques and innovative composites capable of safeguarding the value of the material.
“The word sustainability is rich in meaning, all the more so when you are working with such a prestigious material, which has been evolving for millions of years, acquiring more value day by day. Sustainability in the absolute sense does not exist. However, a thorough process that combines research and awareness gradually leads to a more sustainable approach”
