In his collection named for the Italian master, Knibb has taken the humble but iconic garments of modern society — jeans and t-shirts — and turned them into a work of art in marble. The designer says that at a distance, the table’s surface appears to be the disturbed surface of water. Indeed, when we first saw the pieces at ICFF, we weren’t sure what they were until we got close enough to see that the marble relief was clothing, including the finest of details: Ribbing, frayed hems, buttons and belt loops. It takes two Italian sculptors about about 700 hours to carve one of these tables. In a media interview, Knibb said that the first carver does a rough cut, and then second refines the piece, adding the details. Not only do the pieces look incredibly life-like, wrinkles and all, but you can see the veins of the marble in these amazing works.
It had a simple design, with a raw-edge wooden headboard attached to the wall. The headboard wasn’t attached to the bed frame so when the entire structure was pulled up to free up the floor space, this accessory remained on the wall, serving as a decoration. Adding a hanging bed with a pulley system to a cabin was a clever move and a practical decision taken by the designer. Given the limited floor space, this allows a single room to change function easily, transforming from a bedroom into a living space.
Given the right setting, a modern media console has the potential of becoming a focal point in the living room although it can easily blend in and stay subtle if so desired. Modern media storage stands are usually very simple and this allows them to be very versatile and adaptable. There are numerous existing designs that are worth displaying as more than just functional furniture and, if you prefer something different, there’s always the option to turn this into a DIY project. Built using curved glass, the Screen console table has a sleek design created by Lievore Altherr Molina for modern and contemporary interiors. The console comes equipped with a CD/DVD holder.
