Chair Upholstered Leather Blue Steel Italian Limited Edition Contemporary Design

About

The chair berserker is made of mirror polished stainless steel with upholstering in genuine aquamarine leather. Tipping over the chair it turns into a side-table which also contains a magazine rack. Chair dimension: L 56, W 50, H 82 cm. Each table is hand signed and numbered by the artists (engraved). 100% handmade in Italy comes with a “Certificate of Authenticity”. The inspiration came from folding a simple piece of paper, the aim of the project was to reproduce this shape giving it body and resistance without losing the windiness of its curves. The pattern of the cushion recalls a zoomorphic shape, a living organism, animal or plant, parasite or symbiont, hugging the chair tightly, seeming to grow on it in contrast to the coldness and hardness of the metal. It feels that, leaving the room for an undefined time, one could at his return find the chair completely overgrown by this parasite organism, taking over the hard metal.

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.
