Objeto Rocha Lighting
Simple lighting objectsmade from marble leftovers.
I was with a work partner and good friend Thiago when the marble became a subject matter in the conversation. I was petrified when he told me about her aunt Izabel owner of a marble shop. She sells huge pieces of rock that become floors, walls, sinks and all sorts of huge heavy things. In her business, small pieces are considered leftovers.
With that opportunity in mind, we created lighting objects made from her discards. We had to design something radically simple so it could be built by her employees in their spare time, using the tools they already have. We are now selling our first piece, Objeto Rocha #1. It’s insanely heavy, but we ship worldwide.
