We offer our warmest congratulations to Marco Piva, the Head Juror of our id Design Awards and winner of Wallpaper* Design Awards 2019 in the Dream Factory category for his stunning Marty Console for Visionnaire Home Philosophy.
‘Nothing attracts me more than working with matter, interacting with it in search of new and involving forms and effects. From glass to metals and stones, an itinerary intensely oriented towards the search for an unexpressed “essence” and a new way of telling a furnishing product’, explains Piva. ‘My studio has particularly addressed the complex subject of light, trying to propose shapes and surfaces that can generate light efficiently and above all exciting’.
In the Marty collection, the glass tops have been transformed into volumes, and the bases are themselves volumetric compositions of different materials. Stones and metals give a sense of monumentality to compositions intended to be functional centres of important and exclusive seating areas and living rooms. The tables are designed as mini monuments.
