Memphis Sottsass Style Silver and Gold Foil Pyramidal Dresser Chest of Drawers

$5,995

About

Equally beautiful as anything hanging in the Guggenheim and deserved the respect. Although unsigned, this is most likely a 1 of 1 studio original. Covered from head to toe in a mix of gold leaf, silver leaf and hand painted lacquer designs. The faux coral wood pulls are so convincingly organic that you have to touch them to believe it's not actually shell. Deep drawers on metal glides are interior lined in black velvet. It's not easy to categorize this look, so we sent a pic to the scientists at NASA (not really), they crunched some numbers and here's the completely arguable composition breakdown. 50% Memphis 20% Neo deco 20% Postmodern 10% Miami Vapor wave We're certain you've never seen anything quite like this and neither have we. We're guessing it's 1980s-1990s but not 100% certain. This mysterious little pyramidal gem asks as many questions as its Egyptian ancestors, but here's what we know for certain. It's petite, it's geometric, it's monumental and it's a masterpiece. Don't meditate on this one for too long. It's what we call FT, LT (first time, last time).
