Marblo by Markian
Unique to Markian is the Marblo by Markian material. Marblo by Markian represents our belief in endless design possibilities through alternative, sustainable materials. A notable feat in challenging familiar materials, this solid surface is a result of our innovative production process and daring spirit. Featuring nine colourways and a variety of options, Marblo by Markian is unlike any other.
A polymer-based hybrid ‘Solid Surface material’ invented in 1979, Marblo® was originally created to provide new levels of performance in laboratory and kitchen benchtop applications. Today their products are used in a myriad of residential, commercial, retail, and hospitality environments.
At the launch of Marblo® materials, their maxim was and to this day remains “Freedom of Imagination”. By way of ongoing research and product development, day-by-day, they are coming closer to attaining this aim.
All Marblo® materials enjoy extended life-of-use as compared to most interior materials. Marblo® can be easily repaired and refinished back to its original condition, reducing the need to replace or dispose of it. It can also be removed, re-cut and either reinstalled as a new design or seamlessly reworked into new products, reducing demand for virgin materials and reducing waste.
Marblo® sheet materials and cured adhesives all have low-VOC (volatile organic compound) content, are low-emitting, and are non-toxic and non-allergenic to humans.
Medium: Original hand-painted artwork in mixed media on timber, framed in raw Tasmanian oak.
Dimensions: 620mm x 620mm

His minimalist works are explorations of geometric abstraction and draws inspiration from his architectural and design background. He is intrigued by the relationship between viewer and artwork and the emotional response that non-objective shape, composition and colour evokes.
