Artist: Carrara Design Factory was founded by Carla Beccari in 2014 with the aim to promote the precious marbles of Carrara and its unique characteristics highlighted and unveiled by the creative minds of our team of designers and architects, throughout the ability and know-how of the craftsmanship tradition that has lasted over the centuries in the city of Carrara.
Born in Paris in 1985, artist Victoria Wilmotte attended an Interior design school in Paris, following London with a master's degree in Design Products at the Royal College of Art. After her graduation in 2008, she went back to Paris and opened her studio. Among her recent collaborations, she created special objects for Tools Galerie in Paris and had her first personal exhibition in Brussels at Pierre Bergé et Associés Gallery in 2009.
Recently, she has collaborated with a stone manufacturer to create a collection of furniture and objects. She has also worked for the online furniture shop: Made in Design; Philips de Pury, Poliform. She also deals with clients on customized projects. Beyond the design as a professional discipline, Victoria is addicted to shapes, subtly chiseled geometry and carving materials. She deals with creation like a sculptor: sizing up the void and the full, cutting the object up to the perfect angle or the imperceptible round, and polishing the surfaces until the desired texture is achieved.
