the self-produced collection of provocative, symbolic and oneiric furniture, is a series of domestic hallucinations imagined by milan-based designer andrea maestri.
each piece has its own soul and becomes the protagonist of a bizarre story aiming to produce a strongly figurative and uninhibited aesthetics: religion, eroticism,
urban culture are the favorite themes, always trying to listen to what comes out walking in the street.
a great variety of techniques (veneer, polycarbonate printing,
bronze fusion, resin) and materials (from aluminum to leather, from wood to fabrics) has been involved and explored; the result is a family of iconic objects between
design, art and craftsmanship able to communicate in a very powerful way the madness and instability of our human lives.
