The Swiss-born designer is showing a new collection in London next week, which the David Gill Gallery, which is to present the show, says demonstrates ‘the notion of art imitating nature’.
Among the pieces on show is the Roots side table, a delightfully bulbous, organic-looking object:
And the Congo chair, in a playful leopard print design:
The collection comprises 25 pieces, including tables, sofas, chairs, mirrors and lighting. True to his reputation for using unusual and diverse materials, we’ll find bronze, tufo, rock crystal, wood and upholstery making up the work.
Gallery owner David Gill says, ‘With Mattia’s work there is always the element of surprise, whether it be in the material, concept, shape or function.
‘In this new collection he expresses ideas in an intelligent and innovative way, creating pieces which are contemporary and very sought after’.
Bonetti’s work is on show from 26 June – 31 July at David Gill Galleries, 2-4 King Street, St James¹s, London SW1Y 6QL www.davidgillgalleries.com
