Tomaso Buzzi Rare Rustic Table with Certified, 1928


Sandblasted oak, the only example made for the house R. 1928. Accompanied by a “Certificate of Authenticity” from the Buzzi archive and a letter from the project written by the author. Highlights are its wooden horn-copies that serve as a support. The horn-copies are a distinctive and characteristic element of Buzzi's design. Made of oak wood. Tommaso Buzzi, during the 1920s and 1930s, especially in the context of the Deco affair, was a designer of clear fame, one of the favourite architects of the most exclusive Milanese bourgeoisie. Between 1932 and 1934, Tomaso Buzzi became the artistic director of Venini & C., for whom he created a series of vases with classic shapes, obtained through the development of traditional techniques. Measurements: 168.00 x 79.00 x 84.00 cm.

About Tomaso Buzzi (Designer)

Architect, urban planner, glass, furniture and landscape designer, and interior decorator — Tomaso Buzzi was a 20th-century renaissance man. Buzzi, along with his frequent collaborator Gio Ponti, led Italy’s Novecento Milanese movement of the 1920s and ‘30s — an approximate equivalent to France’s Art Deco movement. While Buzzi is prized for chairs, tables and other furnishings that modernized the majestic lines of 18th-century designs, he is best known for the remarkable, jewel-toned glassware he produced in a two-year stint as the artistic director of the Venini glassworks on the Venetian island of Murano.

     Buzzi was born in 1900 in the town of Sondrio in the Lombardy region of northern Italy. He studied at the Milan Polytechnic, and soon after he graduated joined a lively Milanese decorative arts scene. In 1927, he and Ponti joined fellow designers Paolo Venini and Michele Marelli to form a design collaborative called Il Labirinto (the Labyrinth), Italy’s answer to the Wiener Werkstätte. In 1932, when Venini's glass company lost the design services of the sculptor Napoleone Martinuzzi, who left to start his own factory, he turned to Buzzi. The young architect’s careful study of lighting design and a love for experimentation yielded major innovations in Murano glass fixtures. The forms of his wares were inspired by sources from antiquity as diverse as Persian urns and animal-shaped Etruscan jugs. Buzzi developed a complex glass-layering method that produced deep, glowing pastel colors that ran from pink to peach, to sea-green and slate blue.

     Buzzi furniture has a noteworthy elegance and nobility. Delicate chairs with arrow-shaped backs and elaborate burled wood armoires are typical of his aesthetic, and would add a sophisticated note to any room, modern or traditional. And an exemplary piece of Buzzi’s vibrant, lustrous glassware would merit a place of honor in every design collection.
