Project description

SpatialConnection(s) Dario Donato designed ZStand for It’s Stone, a luxurious table stand for tablets carved from marble. ZStand has been mainly thought for yachts, hotels and luxury villas, valorizing their interiors.

ZStand is a simple object with a complex geometry. The fluidity and ergonomy of its silhouette enhances the sculptural design, which pleases the sight as well as the touch.

Just like a graceful manta’s fin movement, the base of the stand is shaped as a variable surface between its central and side parts, allowing the user to easily access the device in all its functions.

The back of the stand was designed as direct correlation of the groove on the base, allowing an optimal inclination of the device while giving a vigorous tension between the vertical part and the base.

The two blends contradict each other, a concave one and a convex one, facing opposite directions. They allow the transition between the base and the back where shadows and light reflexes exalt the color.

From utter purity to a mixture of purity and veins, ZStand is manufactured in black and white, starting from Belgian Black to Bianco Sivec, passing through Gold Veined White Lasa and Nero Marquina.

ZStand is carved from single block of marble with a last generation 5-axis CNC machine, valorizing its natural stone with unique and authentic surfaces embedding millions of years of geological formation
