The Lunar Collection is the new collaboration between Lara Bohinc and stone expert Lapicida.
The juxtapositioning of charismatic marbles including Persian Gold, Verde Guatemala, Red Wine and Black and Gold picks up another of Bohinc’s central inspirations for this collection: the historic buildings of Venice, where complex marble inlay has been a decorative art for centuries. Ancient stone marquetry work such as Pietra Dura and Opus Sectile is closely related to the jeweller’s art of marrying contrasting stones into a perfect whole, underlining Lara’s own design vocabulary.
v Using Pietra Dura and Opus Sectile techniques to create Lara Bohinc’s contemporary designs involves both state of the art CNC manufacturing and countless hours of painstaking hand-finishing. The Half Moon dining table requires over 100 hours’ work by the craftsmen.
