'JinYe' Side Table #2 featuring Patagonia Quartzite by Studio MVW



Designed for Galerie BSL by Sino-French duo Studio MVW, winner of multiple awards in Europe and in Asia, the ‘JinYe’ collection is based on the dialogue between a brass-colored leaf and the shimmering richness of Patagoni quartzite. This exceptional natural granite was born in a volcanic region in Brazil and is known for its durability and beautiful patterning. ‘JinYe’ translates as Gold (Jin) Leaf (Ye) in Chinese. The Gold Leaf, an oblong circular shape cut in various sizes, is the central motif of the ‘JinYe’ collection, forming each element of the piece - top, shelf, sides - in a composition that looks spontaneous but is in fact technically very challenging. Like an otherworldly game of stacking stones, a console, coffee table or side table each reveals a new and different appearance depending on the angle from which it is viewed. Mesmerizing as well are the iridescent shades of the Patagonia quartzite, its graphic pattern made of deep black, pale gold and moiré brown, and the incredible twinkling of the quartz, feldspar, mica and other mineral inclusions. As if governed by the laws of nature, ‘JinYe’ establishes itself as a both sophisticated and fundamentally organic collection where each piece stands as a miniature landscape for the home. Founded in Shanghai by Chinese designer Xu Ming and French architect Virginie Moriette, Studio MVW is known for their sculptural, architectural forms and ability to subtly connect contemporary Western and Eastern aesthetics. With over twenty years of experience in architecture, interior and furniture design, Studio MVW has won numerous awards in Asia and Europe, including the Architectural Digest AD China 100 Design Talents Award four times in a row (2019, 2017, 2015 and 2013) and the Wallpaper* Design Award (2018, 2014). Studio MVW’s ‘JinYe’ Collection is produced by Galerie BSL in a limited edition for each work of 8 pieces + 4 artist proofs.

About the Designer

Studio MVW

French architect Virginie Moriette and Chinese designer Xu Ming of Studio MVW draw on their distinct backgrounds and cultures for collaborative pieces that elegantly reimagine expected forms of furniture. The duo uses eclectic materials and sculptural forms for creative pieces as well as in their designs for interiors and architecture.Moriette and Ming are especially inspired by nature as something that links both Western and Chinese design. Ming studied at Penninghen Graphic Arts and Interior Architecture High School in Paris as well as with designers including Didier Gomez, Eric Raffy and Paul Andreu before returning to China in 2004. Moriette studied at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris-La Villette and likewise worked with Andreu, meeting Ming while working on a project in Shanghai. Their first furniture designs came out of the pieces they were creating for their own home, such as wooden bookshelves that evoked the shapes of tree trunks. Together they cofounded Studio MVW in Shanghai in 2006.Moriette and Ming now work on smaller scale projects like limited-edition objects and individual furniture pieces as well as entire interiors, regularly harmonizing disparate materials such as bronze, jade, marble and lacquer. Their Jinye series, for instance, features tables made from Patagonian quartzite while their JinShi console involves discs made of pink jade that are illuminated from within. Their architecture and interior designs include the Aoyama Lab Dessert Bar in Beijing, which juxtaposes glass and mesh with wood and stone, and the Shanghai showroom for Pierre Cardin where circular portals frame the housewares.As they told Design Anthology: “Whatever the object or project, we draw inspiration from its context, the client’s needs and personality and always from nature, with the objective of giving all projects a special identity with a hint of poetry.” Studio MVW’s work has included designs for Giorgetti, Roche Bobois and Richemont Group.Find authentic Studio MVW tables, case pieces and storage cabinets on 1stDibs.
