$ 8,700
  • Description
    Inspired by the game of chess with its soft, sinuous shapes King is the key character of the chessboard. Its profile stands out sharply in the white light diffused by the opalescent glass. Floor or table, coffee table book or desk, Re has the spatial presence to create context. The dimmer that allows you to modulate their light makes them a surreal element with varying degrees of intensity: a representative element that releases energy into space when the light is bright, an abstract and restful work when the light is soft and low, glass sculptures during the day in rooms illuminated by natural light Inspired by the history of art, from Cosmè Tura to the Flemish interiors of Jan Van Eych to the conceptual imagery of Marcel Duchamp who practices the game of sacks as a way of life King and Regina are Cartesian axes of a universe that spans eras and cultures.
    Edition of 1960, original in all its parts, fully working, it reports on the socket the tag "Fontana Arte".
    We recommend a wooden box for safety during trasnport.
