It is called POMPEI, the series of side tables designed by the couple of artists and architects Matteo & Ale - OPERE VARIE and produced entirely in resin.
Available through Aybar Gallery .
The magic of this project comes from a trip to Italy. The two artists, after having lived several years in Belgium, decide to return to their native country, retracing it on a journey to rediscover the wonders it offers.
In the ancient city of Pompei they fell in love with colors, structures and in particular with the columns and semi-columns used in the past, more as a decoration than as a structure, with double colors, 1/3 red and 2/3 white.
Starting from the reinterpretation of the Pompeian semi-column, POMPEI does not present the classic grooves of the structure, but rather small, faded columns that gradually become thinner. These small columns take up half of the perimeter, redesigning it and creating games of empty and full with a strong visual impact.
