Pompei, the series of side tables designed by the couple of artists and architects Matteo & Alessandra - Opere Varie and produced entirely in resin.
In the ancient city of Pompei the Artists fell in love with colors, structures and in particular with the columns and semi-columns used in the past, more as a decoration than as a structure, with double colors, 1/3 red and 2/3 white. Starting from the reinterpretation of the Pompeian semi-column, POMPEI does not present the classic grooves of the structure, but rather small, faded columns that gradually become thinner. These small columns take up half of the perimeter, redesigning it and creating games of empty and full with a strong visual impact.
The resin is finished by hand as a stone, for a result of 13 pieces different in proportion and colour, with nuances that, each layer, immediately recall a different material: from red porphyry to red quartz, from pink portugal marble to white onyx.
