MODERNIST STEEL TABLE

Francesca Vannucci

“MODERNISM RELEASED US FROM THE CONSTRAINTS OF EVERYTHING THAT HAD GONE BEFORE WITH A EUPHORIC SENSE OF FREEDOM.” ~ARTHUR ERICKSON OUR STEEL COFFEE TABLE WAS DERIVED FROM THE MODERNIST SCHOOL OF THOUGHT, AND OUR PERSONAL BELIEF, THAT ART SHOULD BE SEAMLESSLY PRESENT IN OUR DAILY LIVES. THE EXPRESSIVE DYNAMICS AND FREE FORM OF THE ABSTRACT DESIGN GIVES DEPTH TO THE CLASSIC CENTERPIECE. FUNCTION AND FANTASY COME TOGETHER WITH THE COOL, TACTILE NATURE OF STEEL GIVING OUR TABLE A BIT OF AN EDGE…

PAOLO PIVA

Francesca Vannucci

LACQUERED METALLIC PYRAMIDS INTERSECT AND THE PARTIAL TRANSPARENCY OF THE PIECE LENDS ITSELF TO A SUGGESTIVELY GEOMETRIC AND MINIMALIST PRESENCE. PAOLO PIVA 2

THIS PAOLO PIVA TABLE IS AN ICONIC DESIGN MOST CLOSELY ASSOCIATED WITH THE ARTIST, IT IS A SLEEK AND GLAMOROUS NOD TO THE FUTURE WHILE STILL RECALLING THE ARCHITECTURAL AESTHETIC OF MODERNISM.

Czech Cubism 2

WE LOVE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE CLASSICAL AND CUBIST ARCHITECTURE - THE TRADITIONS OF DESIGN DISASSEMBLED IN THE ABSTRACT, CREATING AN ASYMMETRICALLY BEAUTIFUL JUXTAPOSITION.

Nerone Patuzzi Black Marble Table

Francesca Vannucci

NERONE PATUZZI IS THE BRAIN CHILD OF ITALIAN ARTIST/DESIGNER NERONE CECCARELLI AND GIANCARLO PATUZZI. THEY FORMED THEIR DESIGN COLLECTIVE  ‘GRUPPO NP2 ‘IN 1962. THE IDEA WAS A COLLABORATION OF CREATIVE MINDS – BRINGING THE WORLD OF FINE ART TO INTEGRATE WITH THE INNOVATIONS IN ARCHITECTURE. ITALIAN MARBLE TABLENERO BEGAN HIS CAREER AS A YOUNG PRODIGIOUS PAINTER. HE HAD MANY EARLY TRIUMPHS; HIS WORK WAS DISPLAYED IN SEVERAL KNOWN GROUP SHOWS AND HE EVEN CREATED ILLUSTRATIONS FOR FAMED SPANISH POET FREDERICO GARCIA LORCA. NERO WAS SOON A MASTER OF MANY DISCIPLINES INCLUDING SCULPTURE. HIS STYLE TRANSFORMED WHEN HE DISCOVERED ARCHITECT/DESIGNER CARLO SCARPA AND THE BAUHAUS SCHOOL. HE BEGAN EXPERIMENTING WITH NEW MATERIALS AND NEW PROCESSING TECHNIQUES. THE BOLD GEOMETRIC PATTERNS OF GRUPPO NP2’S DRAMATIC WORK STRONGLY RECALL AN ABSTRACT AESTHETIC OF THE CUBIST MASTERS.

Tenora by Georges Braque

IN THE LATE 60’S HIS CREATED ANOTHER ARTISTS COLLECTIVE WITH PATUZZI CALLED ‘FORMS AND SURFACES, LTD’, DESIGNED TO FOCUS ON THEIR WORK IN ART INTEGRATION. COMBINING FINE ART WITH THE INNOVATIONS OF TECHNOLOGICAL AND INDUSTRIAL PROGRESS, THEY DEFINED THE RESULTS AS “SOCIAL SCULPTURES.”  THE GROUP PATENTED A NEW METHOD FOR ENGRAVING MARBLE THAT USED HYDROCHLORIC ACID.  THIS TECHNIQUE ALLOWED NERO TO CARVE INTRICATE AND DELICATE FORMS THAT LEFT A HIGH CONTRAST IN COLOR. THE RESULTS WERE STUNNING PIECES OF ABSTRACT ART HOUSED ON EVERYDAY OBJECTS, THUS INTEGRATING ART INTO EVERYDAY LIFE.
