This collection of stone electronics would do the trick to subtly blend various devices in with sumptuous interior decor. Far different to the black plastic and slick aluminum shells that are used to encase most gadgets these days, this elegant series presents itself in a classical manner with influence from ancient Mediterranean design.

Italian Carrara marble is sculpted into vessels and complete products, forming table lamps, suspended speakers, modem concealers, alarm clocks with trays and even Playstation and Xbox console stands. Every one of these stone electronics accessories integrates a powerful component: charging smartphones and other devices, or supplying electricity to routers and audio accessories.

The work of Claudio Larcher and Filippo Protasoni demonstrates that there's a way to fuse luxurious decorative design with hi-tech gadgetry, appealing to wealthy consumers with sophisticated taste.
