CORNELIS, stone table

Text from the book “Essenze di marmo. Cleto Munari” – 2022 – EAN 9788893970365

“A game of voids and fullness, lines and solids that chase each other within amplified geometric shapes destined to replicate indefinitely.
The decoration of this marble tabletop designed by artist Cattano is named after the Dutch engraver and graphic artist Maurits Cornelis Escher and represents a unified set of pure shapes that recall perfection and order.
Although a table by its very nature is a static object and a permanent furnishing item, this design and constructive imprint has assigned to It perspective and dynamism, which generates amazement, observation and curiosity towards an underlying and intriguing language that refers of geometry, mathematics and proportions the key trinomial of any creative universe.
Cornelis is a marble table with disciplined sculptural shapes: from the top to the legs, everything translates into an unmistakable silhouette that encloses the secret of timeless strength and style.
Everything in this table is fluidly connected, just like the works of the artist whose name it bears.
A table whose workmanship and finish recall the laws of physics, evoking a pleasant sense of movement where the top expresses sheer balance to be fully exploited and enjoyed.”
