Le Poule and Ercole Piccolo Tables by Reiecta
Updated: Jan 6, 2020
Reiecta is a project that explores the boundary between nature and design, started after a discovering dozens of marble wastes left, year after year, in a wood near an Italian stone industry.
The rejected material [res iecta] seems to colonize the environment. Some contaminations took place: humidity stains, growing roots, material breaks. The inert marble became fertile by attracting life forms.
Reiecta is a collective project thought by a group of designers in order to reverse the industrial processes, transforming the production waste into raw material. The result is a series of objects with zoomorphic shapes, that evoke the peculiarities of each species.
A series of case studies collected in a limited encyclopaedia that has no scientific aim, only curiosity about nature and its phenomena. Reiecta SerieZero is now available with a catalog of twenty-five top, to be associated with two different projects : Le Poule and Hercules.
