Dareios Rectangular Tray
The Dareios Rectangular Tray can be used to display any of your prized possessions like perfumes, candles or jewellery. We like to use it as modern take on a bread basket, to display herbs, oils and spices in the kitchen, or hold the basic salt and pepper vessels. Why not lay cutlery on it for a casual dinner party, or place hand soap on in the bathroom or powder room?
Dareios tray is handcrafted in pure Lais marble in a small village in the north of Greece famous for its marble quarries and pays homage to ancient Greek civilization, especially to the Acropolis and Parthenon. Lais marble is a metamorphic rock that morphs from limestone under extreme heat and pressure deep within the earth. It also contains dolomite along with the limestone which gives them different colors and tones. The traditions of marble carving and sculpture that goes back thousands of years to the famous Greek sculptors Phydias and Praxitelis are still alive today.
Dareios tray is carved by hand and conveys a feeling of modernity while representing the luxuriousness of the material formed by nature and enhanced by human interpretation. It features a matte polish finish and is signed by the maker and designer. Since the designer does not like to paint the surface of the marble stone with transparent paints or resins, three coats of the highest possible level of protective sealant are applied instead. This will preserve both the piece and the natural feel of the marble.
