About

First, there was an encounter between a designer, Nestor Perkal, and the Oscar Maschera company. Then, there was Argentina, his native land. While working with the company on leather projects, Argentina imposed itself as a self-evident point of reference. It fuels his imagination, subtly inspiring his designs without ever becoming an obvious citation. Nestor Perkal created Bombo in that same spirit. Its name resounds like the beating of a drum; but the reference to Argentinian drums is far more than tongue-in-cheek. The fabrication process is complex. Like upturned jars, these hollow ceramic orbs are handmade, either turned or slip-cast, depending on their size. What follows is delicate: holes are punched in the yet unfired clay. Once the pieces are fired and glazed, the leather straps that ensure that the skin seat remain taut will be laced through them. Bombo is made exclusively in Pesaro, Italy, in the region of the Marche where Oscarmaschera has its headquarters. Bombo is the result of a fruitful encounter between leather and stoneware, a work of Trans-Alpine savoir-faire. The Bombo collection is extraordinarily versatile; the pieces can be used as coffee tables, side tables, tea tables or stools. With its warm and familiar shapes and soft colors – earth-brown, sky blue, terra cotta – Bombo fits gracefully into any décor – ready to “be of service” simply and beautifully. Enamelled stoneware in three different colors, genuine Italian vegetable-tanned leather, colors as per available range, lace in natural color. Handmade in Pesaro, Italy Nestor Perkal, born in Buenos Aires, lives and works in Paris.Though he trained as an architect, his work has always been oriented to design and interior architecture. In 1985, he founded an international design gallery in Paris, l’Espace Nestor Perkal, where he was among the first in Europe to show and sell pieces from the “New International Design” movement: Memphis Milano, Mariscal and many others. From 1987 to 1994, he was the artistic director of the goldsmith’s company Algorithme, where he invited many designers to work on edition projects that were highly successful in France and abroad. As a designer, he has collaborated with Drimmer, Lou Fagotin, Artcodif, Veronese, etc. At CIRVA (International Research Centre on Glass and Plastic Arts), he created the Miroirs collection in 1994-1996. As an interior architect, he has furnished the “café” of the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris, different areas for Cartier and the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art, as well as many private apartments and houses. He has been the curator and scenographer of exhibitions held at the Cartier Foundation (La vie en Roses, 1998), at the Galerie Chez Valentin, Paris (“chez Valentin 2000”), at the Passage de Retz (Paris, 2000), at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rochechouart and at the Grand Hornu in Belgium for the exhibition Désirs d’Objets (2003-2004) and at the Museum des Arts Décoratifs, Paris for the exhibition Editer le design (2006) and 100% Finlandia (2008). He has been the director of the Research Centre on the Arts of Fire and Earth (CRAFT) of Limoges (1993 – 2009), developing strong and lively projects aimed at creating an experimental and artistic connection between industrialists and designers, architects and artists.
