Rota Lab & Arte Stenico – Carmela

Artist Name:  Rota-Lab and Arte Stenico
Title:  Carmela
Details:  circa 2011  –  Wrought iron, wood, glass

Why It’s Notable:

I think this table represents a terrific blend of the three mediums most often used in furniture (metal, wood and glass) – neither one is dominant over the others.  Each material excels at what it is asked to do.  The design feels very open and light and is well balanced, visually.

  1. Very nice Chris. Version 2… stainless member more stream lined and a dark wood like Acacia stenophylla? The piece is so modern, and the iron is real juxtaposition, wheather intended or not. Stainless would be more in keeping?

    1. Morgan,

      I like the wrought iron. I like the contrast of textures – the coarse iron and smooth glass. I also like the contrast betwee the dark iron and dark edge of the glass top against the light tones of the wood.

      Stainless steel and a dark wood would make the piece look more modern, but also seem heavier.

I would be delighted if you left a comment!
