Interiors Advent Calendar - 9th December

The Interiors Advent Calendar wouldn’t be truly “us” if it didn’t feature some of the marvellous marble creations from one of our Italian brands. For the ninth day, we’ve decided to look at jewellery boxes again, but this time on the marble side of things.

Gum Design have teamed up with Dedalo Stone to create the Disgelo Marble Jewellery Box, part of a series of boxes made from the iconic Bianco Carrara marble and clear Plexiglass. These exquisite pieces recall a time when the earth was covered in glaciers and ice, as the contents appear submerged beneath as if lost in time.

Each box was handmade in Italy and crafted from the finest Carrara marble available—the same high-end materials used in Dedalo Stone’s ready-made and custom interior designs. 

Gum Design is an Italian design studio helmed by Laura Fiaschi and Gabriele Pardi, whose disciplinary focus is delightfully broad, ranging from industrial and graphic design to art direction for companies and events. It sort of made sense to bring such multifaceted minds into the project, to work with a material as versatile and as timeless as Carrara marble.

The Disgelo jewellery boxes can be purchased from Artemest, and they’ve definitely made it onto our Christmas shopping list. It’s fairly difficult to get Christmas gifts wrong with such simple, yet eloquent design pieces, don’t you think?

All of the products featured on our annual Interiors Advent Calendar can be seen on our Pinterest board. You can also find inspiration on our Instagram or follow us for regular updates on Twitter, or you can browse our brands for more information and design ideas.
