Rare Nerone & Patuzzi for Gruppo NP2 Pair of Coffee Tables in Zinc

About the Item

Giovanni Ceccarelli and Giancarlo Patuzzi for Gruppo NP2, pair of coffee tables, black enameled wood, zinc, Italy, circa 1975 These coffee or side tables, created by the renowned Gruppo NP2, have a compelling and interesting design. The tables are based on a rectangular shape with closed legs that mirror the width of the table's top. The sides showcase a stunning display of zinc lines that are intricately engraved. The black lacquered wood base creates an alluring contrast with the brightness of the geometric zinc pattern. Giovanni Ceccarelli, or Nerone, was born in Pisa in 1937. After attending the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice and Florence, he moved to Turin where he continued to live and work throughout his life. Nonetheless, he did travel extensively to many different countries around the world. In 1962, Nerone, together with his friend and fellow student Giancarlo Patuzzi, established Gruppo NP2. The group created work together until 1974. During this period, the two cooperated internationally, receiving many awards and collaborating with other artists as well. In their creations, they experimented a lot by using different materials. They made monumental sculptures as well as furniture and panels, working with metals, marble, concrete and wood. Their intention was to free art and produce something that was not limited inside galleries or museums, to make something that could become an important part of daily life. For that period, this idea was revolutionary. Unfortunately, due to different ideas, the eventually departed ways. However, Nerone never stopped creating his own work and, up until his death in 1996, he constructed panels and sculptures. Please note that these items are in good, used condition.
