Il sambuco


The evocative image that gave rise to this coffee table is that of lilies floating on the surface of the water. The brass concentric circles of the tabletop recall the ripples of a stone dropped in the water and imbue the surface with glimmering gold reflections. The surface relief suggests thick Impressionist brushstrokes. The Labradorite inlays heighten the fascination of the object and, through their iridescence, generate chromatic effects that call to mind Monet’s celebrated water lilies. The smoked glass invites the gaze beyond the surface, in search of sunken treasures.
