D1 – MC  is a project inspired by cross-laminated timber, often used as a structural building material, developed for the Italian design company Vero. The stool and the dining table are made by glueing together layers of solid lumber. The laminated block is then cut at a 45-degree angle. This final cut disguises the viewer: at the front it looks like a simple square section. However, the top reveals solid layers of lumber arranged diagonally, at a 45-degree angle. This optical illusion reveals the rich, complex structure and carefully crafted production process of the project. A transparent matt varnish emphasises the construction of the collection.

Marco Campardo is a London-based designer focusing on production, research and teaching. He has a particular interest in making and material experimentation as a form of critical practice, using it to explore wider narratives about culture, materiality, identity and authenticity.
MMMarco’s work starts with hands-on experimentation and research to question the nature of contemporary models of production. With a keen interest in materiality, his research seeks to subvert or adapt industrial manufacturing processes to propose an alternative to standardised, mass production. The final result of this process is aesthetically and conceptually refined objects, whose final form is determined by the very process of making. Playing with high-end and lo-fi methods and materials, Marco’s projects can be seen as a commentary on the value of making and craftsmanship.
