new york’s delorenzo gallery and designer samuel amoia present an exclusive collection of seven limited pieces, each made from natural materials in a variety of hues and textures. amoia combines mediums like italian onyx, brass, and gem stones with tables, mirrors and consoles — an application which forms a distinct blend of material tactility and precision.

pieces featured in the collection include an abstract console, formed by a base of geometric shapes coated in brass shavings and topped with a surface of italian onyx; a kidney-shaped table, which also uses onyx as a surface and brass-coated legs, attached by small nubs that protrude above the top; a red jasper ‘split kidney-shaped’ console, which is supported by a sequence of rectilinear legs; a sculptured bronze drum bearing a smooth top and a rough, terrain-like façade; a circular coffee table coated in lapis lazuli supported by twelve rectilinear legs; a small round table featuring a top of white onyx and a cylindrical base encrusted with black tourmaline; and a circular mirror held by eight, evenly spaced square clasps coated with brazilian aventurine in a tree hue. overall, the collection includes pieces that can either stand on their own, or complement each other through a balance between materials and inspired craftsmanship.
