For its exclusive collections, MMairo collaborates with international artists, architects and designers whose imagination transform daily objects into dreamlike centrepieces.

Solid and durable, MMairo collections are eclectic and recognisable, always contemporary while and rooted in history.
Michelangelo, Calacatta, Portoro and all the other natural marbles used in MMairo collections are all precious materials with a strong historic presence. A metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals this natural wonder has been used in sculptures and interiors since classical times. MMairo borrows this millennial legacy of craftsmanship to write a new chapter of its use. It all begins in Carrara, the international capital of marble, and headquarter of the company. Surrounded by the Apuan Alps, MMairo oversees the quarrying and processing of the material while harnessing its strong relationships with local manufacturers. Sharing dust and sunsets, expertise and vision, the artistic creation of every single object starts with the selection of the material.
MMairo is design and artistry, always seeking innovative form and ideas to reinterpret the material. Its colours and endless veins make every piece of marble an extremely challenging material testing the best designers in elevating and respect its uniqueness. For this reason, since its inception, the company was driven to collaborate with designers, interior designers and architects to supply its valuable materials for customisations and limited editions, while supporting them in every step of the project’s development. Away from assembly-line productions, which marble cannot sustain, MMairo is specialised in bespoke design working to support the inspiration of creative artists who understand marble’s beauty and purity.
Karen Chekerdjian, Matteo Cibic, Ivan Colominas and Michele Chiossi are among the seven international authors designing MMairo latest collection of luxury furniture and home decor. The Lebanese designer Karen Chekerjian brings MMairo into her peculiar artistic narrative where objects are the alphabet of a new language. Her TOTEM is not a work of design but rather a search for balance between solid and void, between heavy and light. Composed of three shapes – a cylinder, a circle, a cone – TOTEM can be arranged in two compositions. Three elementary geometric forms are stacked one on top of the other in different sequences, like building blocks.
Italian designer Matteo Cibic on the other hand, reinterprets the material creating a collection of vases with hybrid functions and anthropomorphic and joyful shapes. Italian sculptor Michele Chiossi, revisits traditional shapes of marble sculpting, combining technological material with the precious stone. Design excellence and unique approaches at the service of the quintessential of a luxury element.
