Today we are going to show you how this inspiring new collection connects with some of the most famous architectural icons in the world!
The new mid-century modern collection by Carlo Donati and Essential Home combines the best of both worlds, or in this case, inspirations: great Italian architecture and design legends as well as a representation of Palm Springs mid-century modern architecture and design culture. Still don’t know how the Italian designer was able to connect the bespoke furniture world with the modern architecture industry? Here is one example that might show you the idea:
To say that Oscar Niemeyer was a living legend would be an understatement. This incredible modern architect, which is one of Carlo Donati’s biggest role models, spanned over a century and his career took him in and out of the developing world. He was responsible for about 600 design projects that can be counted as masterpieces, in different places in the world, from Rio de Janeiro and Algeria to Paraná and Paris.
The modern Alvorada Palace and its unique facade were the kick-offs that Carlo Donati needed for coming up with the idea of Essential Home’s Alberto Table. This unique building is the official residence of the President of Brazil and is located in the national capital of Brasília, on a peninsula at the margins of Paranoá Lake. Designed by Oscar Niemeyer and built between 1957 and 1958 in the modernist style, the modern architecture design project is listed as a National Historic Heritage Site.
Named after one of the best Italian cinema personalities (Alberto Sordi), this unique dining table design by Carlo Donati features smooth curvilinear lines of the wooden legs of this unique furniture piece that take inspiration from the architectural shapes of Oscar Niemeyer’s concrete structures.
