For his debut creations, Marcantonio introduced “Vegetal Animal”, a concept that evokes strong emotions to represent Nature. What only began as an exclusive chair, turned into sculptural wonders that include everything from cabinets, chairs, sofas to rugs and lamps. From the large, sculptural Tree Cabinet to the small Log Lamp, he has combined the company's strength of luxury materials and finishes with his unique language.
The furniture borders on caricatures of animal and plant forms with solid glossy colours but he suggests an “elegant irony” with the use of brass, suede, premium wool, an chic colour palette and meticulous inlay work. With each unique product, the idea was to literally bring a forest into a home. Quirky shapes and subtleties, elegant colour tones and brass finishes create a sense of eccentricity and luxury when the collection is seen as a whole or even as individual pieces of art.
Marcantonio presented the concept of this prolific collection to Scarlet Splendour, urging the use of brass and other luxury materials to take his designs out of the realm of childish art to “elegant irony”. Meticulous inlay work and fine craftsmanship have resulted in a brilliant, unprecedented collection, FOREST. A collection with mystery, humour, originality and functionality at the heart of each creation.
