How Design Can Change the World: Formafantasma in The Wall Street Journal Magazine
Design duo and Dzek collaborators Formafantasma are profiled in a recent story by Alice Cavanagh for The Wall Street Journal Magazine. The piece delves into Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin’s design pursuits and the issues they address through their work, including interrogating the designer’s role as creator and potential agent of change. Our founder, Brent Dzekciorius, is quoted and our soon-to-be-debuted (currently in beta) volcanic-ash glazed products receive a nod.

A LIFE IN DESIGN – TOM BARTLETT
by Fiona McCarthy
Livingetc profiles Tom Bartlett, head of Waldo Works studio based in London. He speaks about his ongoing projects, signature touches and approach to interiors. When being asked about favourite materials of the moment he includes Marmoreal, which the studio recently chose for a London residential project. “I love the way the random patterning in Marmoreal slabs create energy in a room. I never use it polished, it should feel like a warm, worn church floor”.
The Modern House
The Modern House, an estate agency that specialises in British modernist and contemporary architecture, features some of the most stunning architectural gems and the stories that go with them. Their Journal recently featured a property called Sewell’s Orchard, a large, detached house in rural Hertfordshire designed by the architect Mary Medd in 1934. The property was acquired by new owners, Heidi and Steve, in autumn 2012. Heidi heads up the design agency Together Design and Steve is the head of user experience and design at the BBC. This inherent design sense led them to pursue an extension and redesign that is sympathetic to Medd’s original intentions. We are proud that Marmoreal could find a place in such an inspiring story.
