Infinity is an unusual idea ..I wanted to materialize the immaterial in a subtle blend of materials as noble as wood and as common as glass and metal.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Personifying the ancient symbol of perpetuity into a sensationally rattling sculptural magnum opus, Infinity designer occasional table collection by Stefano Bigi for Porada adapts both the shape and the meaning of this principle with compelling base and minimalist glass top. Paralleling the theory’s adaptation in cultural spheres like fashion, jewelry and art, Stefano Bigi brings the realms of eternity into the world of modern design with his spectacular, though-provoking interpretation of dynamics featuring sinuous lines that create an illusion of material pliability where in reality the tables are as solid as can be being made of chrome, solid wood and glass.
