Afra & Tobia Scarpa Pair of Artona Nightstands for Maxalto, 70s

$ 9,500
  • Description
    Since their first meeting at IUAV in Venice to their move to the Venetian countryside, Tobia Scarpa and Afra Bianchin shared first a degree, then a marriage and a career that marked their lives and those of Italian design at the turn of the 1970s and 1980s-golden years for design made in Italy.
    In the village on the border of Valdobbiadene, in a modest studio, the two began the work that opened the collaboration with Flos - it was 1962. Already loyal followers of Aldo Bartolomeo's Stildomus, for which they designed Torcello - the first furniture system that allowed panels to be joined by a metal profile; in 1966, for B&B Italia, Tobia and Afra designed one of the cornerstones of comfort-symbolic furniture.
    Here we have a pair of nightstands from the iconic Artona's series of furniture designed by Afra e Tobia Scarpa in the 1970s for Maxalto. The "Artona" collection can be distinguished by their exclusive use of wood, interpreted and appreciated as a living material. These items are bediside tables comprising two castor-mounted hindged elements.
