PAIR OF MARBLE TRAYS
GREY MARBLE TRAY
RED MARBLE TRAY
GREEN MARBLE TRAY
Bramante trays encompass together the three main icons of the Renaissance: a great architect, the pureness of circle – so cherished by Bramante – and Carrara marble – the most prestigious material in Italian and European history of art.
The circular shape invokes the Renaissance concept of the man as the centre of space and nature; marble is among the materials most associate with Italian art for it was favoured by the greatest architects and sculptors throughout history.
The fusion of these two elements – shape and matter – in the trays has created a look that is bare yet grand. These classical references give therefore life to a modern beauty.
These trays have been handmade in the city of Carrara – the capital of sculpture -, where Michelangelo went in search for marble blocks from which his illustrious artwork have been carved.
