Italy-based Millim Studio, co-founded by designers Chiara Pellicano and Edoardo Giammarioli has unveiled a side table that has been made from leftover marble pieces from sculptures. Aptly named ‘Miscellaneous,’ the side table is composed of different marbles and stones such as Udaipur marble, Carrara marble, Marquina marble, and Arenaria stone.

The designers were exploring and looking for new ways to express themselves in their work. The creative duo found a novel idea of availing nature in its most raw and natural form and came up with something that is beautiful and functional.
Describing the concept behind the design, Millim Studio used a quote from Salvatore Settis’ book The Future of the ‘Classical’: “The fragment has in itself an invincible necessity, the germ of something, something that is worth more than a meaning, the obsessive urge to be completed, the peremptory eloquence of the incomplete.
A Sustainable Effort
The idea behind creating this marble table was to turn the waste marble pieces into something artistic. With its varied form and shape, the table looks like a masterpiece.
Generally, people don’t pay heed to the waste, but creating something ingenious out of scrap is unique and sustainable.

Distinct Side Table
The table is asymmetric and looks distinct in every sense. As different materials are used in its making, it depicts a variety of textures and colours. Some parts look rugged, while some areas look smooth.
It aesthetically looks elegant. As the product is made from leftover materials, it is clear that no two side tables would be the same in aesthetics. It is a must-have for people who love ‘variety’ and like to collect creative art pieces of furniture in their homes.
