between art and design

"Canvas" coffee table by Francesco Cappuccio

Piet Mondrian
painting “Composition with Gray and Light Brown

In 1917 Piet Mondrian helped to found the Dutch art group de Stijl (the Style), among the most idealistic and severe of the early abstract movements. Driven by more than aesthetics, de Stijl also had an almost religious mission: to unite the material and spiritual worlds through an art of pure geometry

The coffee table Canvasis obviously inspired by Piet Mondrian painting “Composition with Gray and Light Brown”. It represents the attempt to investigate the relationships between art and design.

The sliding secret door come out from the pattern of the painting and allows to use it as storage. Produced by Artitude
