Post-war Italian interior designers were pioneers, shaping the Italian design identity as we know it today. Eye-catching primary colours, fine craftsmanship and high quality materials define the genre. Deeply considered designs incorporate the body’s movement and posture. Simple forms fused with traditional elegance. These iconic often minimalist pieces stand the test of time: a piece of history with gravitas that can be passed on from one generation to the next.
JOYCE CABINET presents pieces by some of the biggest names in the industry. A conversation starter for those in the know, each stand-alone piece has its own story to tell. A Joe Columbo floor lamp, chairs by Mario Botta and Afra & Tobia Scarpa a Fontana Arte mirror as well as Murano glass centrepieces by the likes of Flavio Poli, Vittorio Zecchin and Tapio Wirkalla for Venini. These influential designers often had a background in industrial design and architecture, producing structurally sound, functional and beautiful pieces. By combining what was at the time cutting edge techniques and skills honed over generations by local artisans and manufacturers, they created museum-worthy furniture with soul.
