Marble – Tasteful and Luxurious

Marble products at Cimmermann

Marble is a stunning product that has been used for 100’s of years. From old Italian masters to modern day designers marble has always epitomised sheer indulgence and luxury.

A good way to introduce a piece of tactile marble into your home is with a light or a table. We choose some of our favourites –

Flos Arco Light

Arco Light is a design classic from Achille Castiglioni. We don’t need to say much about this icon of lighting design. One thing to remember is you won’t be able to move the base on your own – 60 kgs of the finest Italian marble.

e15 Enoki Tables

e15 Enoki Tables combine modern colours with the timeless quality of marble so fluidly. Cleverly toying with material, colour and dimensions, these versatile tables are available in combinations of rich marble and coloured steel. 

&Tradition Shuffle Table

With the shuffle Table Mia Hamborg gives new life to the old Nordic craft tradition of turning wood by adding the colour and playful forms from old painted wooden toys. This new black marble version is stunning and adds an element of sophistication.

Flos Snoopy Light

A design classic from Achille Castiglioni. The base is made from the finest Italian marble and the shade from enamelled glass.

Vitra Plate Table

Simple form made with luxurious materials, the Plate Table offers a lesson in simplicity.  Quite in keeping with Jasper Morrison’s philosophy of “super normal” design, the Plate Coffee Tables have a classic shape and finely balanced proportions.

We love marble here at Cimmermann, the feel of it, the look of it and the fact each piece is unique – add some marble to your interior you won’t regret it.

Bestlite BL1 Table Light
This is the oldest light in the list, designed in 1930 and favoured by Winston Churchill the Bestlite BL1 table light is a true Design Classic. Bestlite recently introduced a new Brass version but for us the original chrome version is perfect. Watch a great video about Bestlite here.

Modernica Bubble Light
The bubble light by George Nelson is available in many shapes and sizes but our favourite is the Bubble Ball Light. Originally designed in 1947 they look as good today as they did all that time ago when they were first produced. The simple shape makes them perfect to compliment any interior design scheme. These lamps with their simple sculptural shapes were constructed of an innovative taut plastic that coated a steel wire-frame. Nelson’s unique design and ingenious use of materials prove to eliminate glare and provide an abundant, yet diffused light. A quality which alone is unique to this material and has yet to be bettered. These famous lamps are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
