The concept behind the products I’ve designed for Visionnaire, right from the very first in 2018, stems from a desire to create aesthetically flawless but also functional pieces that would prove powerfully attractive to their users, with their blend of simplicity, harmony and elegance. Specifically, Admeto was fuelled by my own quest for unusual aesthetic values that I wanted to confer on the table as object, creating visual continuity with the architectural and interior scales, part of my research into the all-over balance of volumes, spaces and objects.
Visionnaire’s stylish, typically Italian manufacturing quality also brings the added value of a one-off piece to Admeto, rendering it unique, like a work of art.
Admeto’s shape is informed by the contrast between a natural material, marble, and two artificial ones, glass and metal – engendered by specific technologies.
The elegant polychrome veins of the marble come together and interact with the shiny textures of the metal and glass, their combination and particular processing conveying an air of preciousness, value and excellence. I had in mind an elegant but equally powerful and functional shape, a different way of conceiving high-end furnishing, geared to an exclusive look.
