Thalis & Pythagoras Desk Accessories
This pair of Thalis & Pythagoras marble triangles play on ideas of minimalism, purity, and modernity, challenging the eclectic border between Functional Art and sculptural long-lasting design. Ideal for the office or living room this set of decorative triangles combines apparent simplicity with rigorous geometry.
The set is handcrafted in pure Athenian white Lais marble and black Psiloritis marble in a small village in the north of Greece (Drama) famous for its marble quarries and pays homage to ancient Greek civilization, especially to the Acropolis and Parthenon. White Lais marble and black Psiloritis marble are metamorphic rocks that morph from limestone under extreme heat and pressure deep within the earth. They also contain dolomite along with 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.
These Thalis & Pythagoras marble triangles are carved by hand and convey 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.
