Nanda is the first piece of the Parvati storage collection. The word Parvati, in Indian mythology, means “daughters of the mountains”: Nanda, Uma and Aparna are some of these deities who give their names to the pieces in the collection. The name Parvati, however, also identifies another very important figure, the bride of Shiva, the deity of marriage, to whom Indian women pay homage by wearing precious gold nose rings.
This decorative element with a strong symbolic value becomes central to the collection: infact we see at the center of Nanda cabinet a large brass handle that resembles the shapes of these jewels. Common features of the Nanda cabinet and the other pieces in the collection are also the use of brightly colored woods, with contrasted grains, and also vibrant and multicolored textures. These textures deliberately refer to the psychedelic culture of the 60s, a time when numerous artists traveled through the Indian regions to immerse themselves in this multifaceted culture, and then mixing it with the western one to create masterpieces in musical and artistic fields.
Yoko collection consists of 2 wooden coffee tables. The pieces are characterized by the repetition of triangular elements, which visually refer to the Japanese art of origami. This recourse to geometric repetition is further highlighted through the creation of an embossed linear texture which, on the surface, generates further geometries, while, on the legs, it leads to different front and back of the surface, just like a sheet of paper.
