I came across Sicis Next Art via Kitchen and Residential Design and my heart literally went “thump thump”.
Designer Carla Tolomeo definitely broke the boundaries between art
and function by creating pieces that appear to have been plucked from a
garden. Sicis widely
known for their mosaic art, unveiled their encrusted mosaic chairs and
settees that are so detailed, each piece has that distinct eye catching
bejeweled look. They are undoubtedly aesthetically magnificent works of
art, and transcend the expected utility of mosaic. Quite exotic and
celebrates mosaic in a way that is entirely new without appearing
Not your atypical home pieces for sure, but you would more likely find
one of these chairs in the lounge of one of the finer boutique hotels
around Miami Beach.
As Paul suggested
is this a marketing ploy to have you talking about the company? Maybe,
but this would keep them on my sourcing short list for a high profile
Carla Tolomeo blaze on with your bad self!
