Inspired by the Art Deco design movement of the 1920s, the Marqué collection created by Alessandro Zambelli pays homage to the glamour of that era while offering a stylish contemporary take on vintage furniture designs.

The three pieces of furniture were designed for the MOS Designer Residency Competition, which the artist won along with five other international designers. The competition is organized by Matter of Stuff, a London-based gallery with the goal to promote “a culture where craftsmanship is at the heart of any creation.” The Marqué collection blends Italian style and Art Deco influences in stunning designs that use inlaid copper, brass and iron, various types of oxidation, and different textures to create sophisticated pieces of furniture for modern interiors. The dry bar, console cabinet and coffee table all feature a distinct use of materials reminiscent of traditional cabinet manufacturing methods, reimagined here as creative items that refine the ubiquitous. The inlaid surfaces are finished with a criss-cross pattern and up to four different degrees of oxidization, in a visual symphony of alternating hues and striking textures. Providing contrast, the four legs are extra slender and minimalist; three of them are dipped in unoxidized metal, while the fourth is left untouched, adding a creative and eye-catching finishing touch to the design. Traditional craftsmanship and an Italian aesthetic combine to bring Art Deco to a new generation, and the result is as sophisticated as one would hope it would be. Photos by Daria Petrillo.
