FUNCTIONAL SCULPTURE

June 30, 2017

The art of sculpture dates back thousands of years to the paleolithic era. With time, this branch of the visual arts found its way into the interior design world. This week, we are shining a spotlight on five pieces that stand out for their unique blend of artistic sculpture and function.
CLIZIA
Angelo Mangiarotti, 1990
Clizia is a stone sculpture and lounge piece with sinuous and flowing lines. The contrast between the flowing elements of the design and the hardness of the stone gives complexity and personality to this unique piece.
BENCH NO.84
Kelly Behun, 2013
Bench No. 84 is a part of the Neo Laminati Collection, a furniture series designed by interior designer, Kelly Behun. Behun, who was featured in the June issue of Elle Decor, pays homage to the Memphis Group design movement with her bold designs and use of laminate materials. Sold exclusively at SUITE NY.
SHUFFLE
Mia Hamborg & Peter Hagen, 2010
The Shuffle table combines multiple design elements with its removable pieces that allow you to create different color sequences and height levels. This table brings life to any setting with its interactive and artistic nature.
I-BEAM
Jean-Marie Massaud, 2010
The I-BEAM Tavolini is part of a collection made of smoked glass pieces that have been joined together to resemble the appearance of a joist. This low table, composed of three distinct pieces of smoked glass, makes a statement in any setting thanks to its bold design.
GREEN TABLE
Aldo Bakker, 2015
The Green Table depicts the simplest concept of a table: two legs and a surface. Designer Aldo Bakker employs a technique thousands of years old, applying ‘Urushi’ to the stool. Urushi is a traditional Japanese lacquer made of tree sap, which is naturally extracted from the Urushi tree.
