Sebastian Matta Modular Living Room model Malitte in Foam '60s

$ 15,000
  • Description
    Matta was born in Santiago, Chile, on November 11, 1911, to a family of Spanish, Basque and French ancestry. After studying architecture, he moved to Paris in 1934, where he worked with Le Corbusier. He met André Breton and Salvador Dalí and adhered to Surrealism, developing painting centered on psychological morphologies.
    Malitte by Roberto Matta is a seating system, a continuously modifiable composition of five polyurethane blocks.
    It is a playful collection of colorful organic forms that can be assembled into a single sculpture, a "wall" that divides the room with its formal and conceptual looming and that instantly transforms into a complete living room when needed: two-seat sofa, three seats and a pouf.
    Malitte is part of the permanent collection of MoMA New York and the National Gallery in Rome.
    Good condition, ready to be shipped.
