STROMBOLI / COFFEE TABLE / GALERIE KREO / 2013
The “Totem” console and the “Stromboli” coffee table are created mostly from acetate and follow suit after mirror collection, “Mask”.
This material, often used in the making of artisanal eyewear, is usually resized into many pieces of small-dimensions.
In this case, the acetate plates are used directly as constructive elements of the furniture pieces, which emphasizes their synthetic and organic aspects.
This use of acetate evokes a stepping point between what is natural and what is artificial, what is chosen and what is chancy.
The warmly graphic acetate contrasts with the cool monochromatic materials it’s associated with: the resin of the console or the glass and anodized aluminum of the coffee table.
