It is composed of three volumes that apparently do not seem to be able to stay together, two hard parts in ‘Fior di Pesco’ marble that seem to want to detach themselves from the central part of the upholstered soft padding. Three triangular shapes are pulled together in a compact final sculptural form. Also here the design philosophy is to move and play in between the notions of functionality and sculpturality.
The Marmini collection was deeply inspired by the work and research of New York artist and art critic Scott Burton. One of Burton’s most pivotal early works is Rock Chair where the artist imbued functionality into a two ton boulder of sierra granite by carving an “L-shape” into its core.
A chair has qualities that one can play with, it is democratic, malleable and comfortable, at the same time a chair can also be intended as an artistic object, a sculpture that always will have also a clear specific use value. One could say that a chair is only a chair when intended to be occupied by a human body. With this collection, I wanted to challenge the distinction between furniture and sculpture. Marmini is a playful and colourful collection of useful objects.
