NEOCLASSICAL ARMCHAIRS<< previous | next >>

The mosaiced neoclassical armchairs are part of the mosaiced furniture collection that finds its inspiration in the element 'water'.

 

This couple is made of two restored chairs of walnut wood originated in Italy during the end of the 19th century. The original sitting that got lost has been replaced with a sitting made of transparent plexiglass and colored mosaics, which are immersed in resin. The marquetry and carved ornamental motifes of the armchairs are particularly beautiful and unify different classical styles, like the Baroque, the Rococo and the Gothic in order to become a Neoclassical style which is meant to reflect grace and power. These pieces are, in effect, classical architecture in miniature: chair legs are shaped like columns. However, the touch of lightness that will always keep the Neoclassicism fresh is amplified and renewed by the transparent sitting which was inspired by mosaiced floors constructed during the Romanesque period which nowadays are often located under water as the water level rised during the centuries. The transparency permits a new way of using antique chairs, which makes them contemporary and even more unique.
