Chloe Large Business Card Holder - Green
This Chloe business card holder plays on ideas of poetry, purity, and modernity, challenging the eclectic border between Functional Art and sculptural long-lasting design.
Chloe business card holder is ideal to place your business cards in your office, to keep photos from your loved ones, or simply to keep organized your various papers and notes.
It is handcrafted in pure Tinos green marble in a small village in the north of Greece famous for its marble quarries and pays homage to ancient Greek civilization, especially to the Acropolis and Parthenon. Natural Tinos marble is a metamorphic rock that morphs from limestone under extreme heat and pressure deep within the earth. It also contains dolomite along with the limestone which gives it different colors and tones.
The traditions of marble carving and sculpture that goes back thousands of years to the famous Greek sculptors Phydias and Praxitelis are still alive today.
This Chloe card holder is carved by hand and conveys a feeling of modernity while representing the luxuriousness of the material formed by nature and enhanced by human interpretation. It features a matte polish finish and is signed by the maker and designer. Since the designer does not like to paint the surface of the marble stone with transparent paints or resins, three coats of the highest possible level of protective sealant are applied instead. This will preserve both the piece and the natural feel of the marble.
