Featured Project – Graceful Fig
Stone Amperor x MM Galleri x Lian Architects

The humble graceful fig shell dots Singapore's coastal landscape, and few would fathom that it is a distant cousin of the sought-after portoro gold marble. The graceful fig shell (ficus gracilis) lives in sandy or muddy bottoms in tropical and warm waters at continental shelf depths.  It has the largest shell in the family Ficidae and it is this very shell which share more than 50% of its chemical composition with portoro gold marble, calcium carbonate.

The design of graceful fig takes on the curatorial direction, of unveiling a new breed, by drawing inspiration from the graceful fig shell and its simple yet elegant process of forming through the fibonacci sequence. The shell is unravelled to form a table surface that inverts the nature of the shell as a protective element whilst revealing the thinness of the surface.

This unravelling process is optimized via computational design to generate a new breed of design iterations. The selected iteration is fabricated with a patented state-of-the-art stone bending process that minimizes both material wastage and fabrication time as compared with conventional slab carving techniques.
