Noho Design “Marbelles” by Guillaume Sasseville

19 May

This week is NYC Design WeekICFF, Wanted Design and Noho Design all run fairs in tandem.  I had the opportunity to visit 2 Bond Street, a temporary store and space that is showing new design objects in the Noho Design District.  One of the objects I found most interesting are these “Marbelles.” They are solid marble dumbbell weights created by Guillaume Sasseville, a French-Canadian designer based in Montreal. Marble Dumbbell The weights each are around 5lbs, and will be inscribed with 2kg etchings on the end.  Sasseville collaborated with Josee Lepage of BondToo after she saw a table he made of marble which is on view at the Wanted Design Fair this week.  She thought, “wouldn’t it be cool if this were even smaller, like a dumbbell?”  They haven’t quite determined a price yet, but the dumbbells will run you around $2,000.sssvll---2bond-may17to21-dumbbells-b_v4
