The exhibition takes place in Porta Venezia in Design district, where it is possible to find design and architectural Liberty art in addition to food&wine. With its original works, real Made in Italy craftsmanship with green phylosophy, Frigerio21 promotes the maximum respect for such an important material, making it lasting and sustainable.

Lately, in Italy, there have been moves towards a sustainable line to limit waste of such a precious material like marble is. Quarries have a limited quantity of material to extract and it is also encouraged the extraction from the inside of the mountain (not from the surface), to provide greater protection of the geographical features. Frigerio 21 aims to help this philosophy making durable artworks that express the quality of the material.

Frigerio 21 transforms the marble, applying the most recent technologies with an unique style, the result of a wise mix of tradition an innovation, creating unique and refined artworks, even developed for customers' personal needs, in order to satisfy them with great quality customized products with an Italian design.

“The elegance of the black and white on a piano keyboard, the brilliance of a haute couture red dress, mellow music as a background of our rest”. Sparked from the simple and smooth geometric shape of the oval, “Opera” counters the Carrara White Marble, properly cut to follow the curve of the seating and to ease the access - still without discontinuity in sinuosity - with Marquina Black Marble. The dress, the fabric covering a comfortable, fire- and waterproof mattress, enhances the elegance of the work through the color, as if it was dressed up for the night, to stand out for its viewers. Opera is fully customizable as for shapes and colors (Length 170cm, Depth 70cm, Height 84cm. Weight 120kg ca) and is suitable for an indoor use, in order to preserve the gloss of the marble. For an outdoor use materials such as granite or a mat topcoat are suggested.


“The silences of the desert, its eternal slow motion, the soft curves, the unique sensations of its colors. The complete calm where the mind can finally fly freely”.

The work represents Frigerio21 at its best: art, history and elegance. Carved in classic Roman Travertine, it reminds, as for colors and shapes, the relaxing features of the desert dunes. The beige and soft textile gifts with the feeling of seating in the middle of the desert, creating a mood of peace and quiet. The singular cut of the 45° junction corners of the slabs creates the impression of a whole piece, hiding its real lightness (Length 225cm, Depth 87cm, Height 80cm. Weight 160kg ca). Dune fits both an indoor and outdoor use, since the topcoat is unpolished.


“A throne to lose yourself in a unique, comfortable, tactile feeling amongst marbles with millenniums of history to tell”. Impactful contour and colors remodel the chair Diva into a throne. The contrast of the classic Carrara White and Marquina Black is cracked by the Yellow of the fabric, accenting the energy of the work. This seating can easily change personality without losing its main feature: the comfort in adapting to the spirit of the owner. (Length 97cm, Depth 60cm, Height 84cm. Weight 80kg ca) Diva is suitable for an indoor use to preserve the gloss of the marble.


“One of the most important Italian masterpiece relives in the marquetry of precious marbles, reminding the affinity of different human arts”. The amazing contrast of the inlaid letters of Carrara White Marble and Marquina Black, matched on a Carrara White Marble surface top, reveals a page of one of the most well-known and appreciated pillar of the Italian literature. The work is sustained by four legs alternating white and black, resembling the feud between Guelphs and Ghibellins raging during the years of the Sommo Poeta (“The Supreme Poet”). The table Divina, suitable for an indoor use to preserve the gloss of the marble, has customizable size upon request.

Tavolo “De Bello”(Gallico) DESIGNER DANTE FRIGERIO

“A page of history engraved on the marble becomes immortal and so does its author”Inspired by ancient roman civilization, the diamond shape resembles the pattern of the patrician villas’ floor, while the legs recall the typical arcades of the era. On a Carrara White surface, an excerpt of De Bello Gallico by Giulio Cesare is inlaid. At first sight, the characters is complete, but actually it is carved on the shadow side, giving a strong visual impact. The table De Bello is suitable for an indoor use to preserve the gloss of the marble, has customizable size upon request.
