From Hungaria Palace Hotel -Lido di Venezia Measures cm: H 88, W 90, D 42 About Eugenio Quarti Eugenio Quarti, "prince of the cabinetmakers", was born in 1867 in Villa d'Almè, a small village in the province of Bergamo, from a family dedicated to wood crafts. Eugenio QuartiA 14 years old is sent by his father to Paris where he works as an apprentice in a cabinet-making workshop. At the end of the 80's dell'800 comes back to Italy and settles in Milan where he works, for a short period, with Carlo Bugatti. In the same year, he will then open his own workshop in via Donizetti. The first furniture that draws and produces are clearly derived from Bugatti. From 1894, the year in which he took part in the international exhibition in Antwerp and the international workers' exhibition in Milan, in 1898 Eugenio Quarti developed a personal IDEA of ??modernist furniture, thanks also to the spurs of Vittore Grubicy, finally freeing himself from the stylistic heritage bugattiani and finding new forms so as to define a totally personal style. In the same year he took part in the Turin exhibition presenting modernist furniture in predominantly dark wood decorated with "embedding" of metal, ivory, tortoise and mother of pearl; now it is totally freed from the stylistic elements of the past establishing itself as an artist with a unique and formed personality. Precious wood furniture such as teak, mahogany, rosewood, maracaibo, walnut, natural or dyed maple are enriched with subtle inlays, metal filaments and precious materials, distributed to follow and emphasize the profiles within which decorative plant motifs or stylized animals are inserted. In 1900 he took part in the international exhibition in Paris where he received the coveted "Grand Prix" jury prize. Initiated with undisputed success, he sees his clientele growing more and more within the aristocracy and the upper bourgeoisie; the furniture produced is increasingly luxurious and very expensive.
