Marble by Soulis

Marble is a metamorphic rock, usually limestone or a dolomite rock.  It has been used for centuries as a stone for sculpture and architecture.  Its color and pattern vary greatly depending on its location it was quarried.

Architect Spiros Soulis spent ten years working in London for Lord Norman Foster doing large-scale, high-quality design.  After returning to his native country, Greece, Soulis began to design accessories and products carved from the ubiquitous and ever-present Greek marble.  “Even the sidewalks are made of marble here.” claims Soulis.

Surprisingly, meter per meter, marble weighs less than glass or concrete, which became one of Soulis’s point of inspiration for his products. His products are elegantly carved. They are also lightweight and user-friendly — things we do not usually associate with marble products.
