Executive Desk Table Modern Glass Crystal Limited Edition Design

About

The executive desk 'Origami' is made of crystal glass. Side table dimension: L 195, W 93, H 75 cm. The inspiration for origami came from the observation of a simple piece of paper which, being folded a few times according to an antique Japanese technique, transforms into complex and delicate figures of innate fascination and beauty: The origami. The idea starts off with the concept of taking advantage of the resistance of glass appreciating its optical lightness with the intent to unveil the similarity between the complex art of origami and the workmanship of glass showing its magic transparency. Both, paper with its light sense of touch and opacity and glass with its physical heaviness and transparency present contrary features but have also a strong attribute in common: The concept of lightness. The tables origami were created as a result of this theory.

About The Maker

Barberini & Gunnell Srls

Barberini & Gunnell Srls

View Profile
The Atelier Barberini & Gunnell was founded in Ancona (Italy) by the architects and designers Francesco Barberini and Nina A. Gunnell as the result of a passion followed for a long period of time, creating objects far from the industrial reality; one-off pieces and limited editions. The choice of the best and most precious materials, the maniacal cure for detail are the basis of their modus operandi aiming to create timeless pieces. Every artwork has it’s inspirational background, it’s story. Gigantic spiders as tables which bypass the forests of enormous mangrove trees, light weighted and at the same time heavy glass Origamis, chained up tables which seem to revolt against the immobility of the four legs, freeing themselves in a movement of rings forming a chain. Abandoning the mere functionality and rediscovering emotions; from the warm perfume of wood, losing oneself in the transparent magic of crystal glass, to the cold and sterile steel, thought by mankind for mankind, mirror polished symbol of progress. The artworks by Barberini & Gunnell can be found in auction houses like Sotheby's, Bonhams, Tajan and Dorotheum and are presented by Italian and International galleries. The sculptural dining-table 'Chained Up Miami' was presented by the Ammann Gallery during ArtBasel Design/Miami 2016. Barberini & Gunnell also create for private clients and collectors such as the architect Peter Marino, who inserted a bench of the 'Get Lost!' family in his late.
