To augment the seating comfort, an oversized cushion with a materic Lelievre fabrics covers the entire chaise longue. This lounge chair presents a radical and severe formal shape composed of juxtaposed triangular shapes. This apparently simple form is rendered possible through a complex inner structure that allows the production to use marble of an ecologically reasonable thickness.
Simplicity, perfectionism of the shape and excellent craftsmanship exhibit here the natural beauty of the marbles used to build this sculptural piece of furniture, «it puts nature on display».
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 twoton boulder of sierra granite by carving an “L-shape” into it’s 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 colorful collection of useful objects.
