NEOCLASSICAL CHAIR<< previous | next >>

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


This restored chair of walnut and black ebony wood originated in Italy during the beginning of the 20th century. The original sitting has been replaced with a sitting made of transparent plexiglass and colored mosaics, which are immersed in resin. The antique marquetry and carved ornamental motifes of the chair 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. This piece is, in effect, classical architecture in miniature. 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 that nowadays are often located under water as the water level rose during the centuries.


The transparency permits a new way of using antique chairs, which makes them contemporary and even more unique.
