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.
The Folio media stand designed by Giuseppe Bavuso is a freestanding unit that hides most of its storage at the back while the front features a sleek, curved panel that doubles as a TV stand. Behind it there’s a series of small shelves/ storage compartments for DVDs and other small objects. If you prefer something a bit more low profile, take a look at the NeXo cabinet. It has a simple and sophisticated design and comes with built-in speakers, a detail that increases the unit’s versatility, allowing it to suit living rooms and home theater’s alike.
Similarly, the Setis media cabinet is a combination of furniture and sound. It features dual stereo speakers with bluetooth connection and a multi-sync option. The console itself is made of white particleboard and has a glass divider for the lower shelf. In the case of the 360 TV cabinet by Ronda Design, the interesting addition is the stainless steel swivel top which allows it to expand its surface and to maximize its storage and display capabilities. The main unit has a matt lacquered finish and integrates two large drawers. The Factory cabinet is a bit more traditional but can easily be included in the category of modern furniture. It has a low design and features a combination of wood and metal. The frame is wooden and the base is metallic.
