The ‘Retegui’, is a reinterpretation of 19th century café style furnishings by Iratzoki. Particular focus is tended to the harmony of marble and metal, colors and underframe finishes. The ‘Bigun’ coffee table takes a slightly different approach, choosing instead to accentuate the contrast between hard and soft. Molded foam, which is upholstered with padded fabric, is finished with a thin slab of marble.
different versions of the ‘bistro’ table
‘Tanko’ is a clock that combines the simplicity of Carrera white marble with full-grain leather from the rémi carriat tannery. its shape is an honorable nod to the bygone era of the milk watcher, a once kitchen staple now lost in time. sylvain Willenz, likewise, enhances the 2015 collection with creating and subtle use of the rich material. ‘Alaka’ is a series of minimalist designs that includes shelving, mirrors, and wall hooks. bevelled edges and round, soft angles impart a lightness to the ever-lasting strength of marble.
