At once a sublime work of art and a functional object, BANG II is a unique, hand-carved console table that defies easy categorization. Markus Haase’s two decades of experience as a sculptor and designer are evident in his masterful treatment of materials, where smooth undulations of bleached American Black Walnut appear as malleable as drapery as they curve in convex and concave forms beneath a hand-carved Bardiglio marble top.
Marco Costa is the best interior designer of Boca do Lobo and his creations are unique. Soho Console is composed by a collection of wood drawers finished in mirror and black glass with etched detailing, gold leaf, diamond matched rosewood veneer, high gloss blue or pink lacquer, and white lacquer with hand carved relief patterning.
The drawers are accented with handmade brass pulls and cut glass knobs; they are encased in a bronze glass box supported by a high gloss.
Lara Bohinc draws on her experience in metalwork with the Celeste Console. This piece has an elegant and playful form made from square brass galvanised steel rod frame, that contrasts with the fresh blue of the verdigris patinated copper surface, sides and drawer.
The design plays with circles and straight lines to create a piece that is delicate, light but complex. Two different mirror shapes accentuate the wave in the console’s surface and its flowing, light form.
