“Tarquinia Chair” by Roberto Matta

“The function of art is to unveil the enormous economic, cultural and emotional forces that materially interact in our lives and that constitute the real space in which we live.”

Roberto Matta was a celebrated painter and an equally talented furniture designer. His furniture design was strongly interconnected with his art, each creation was the result of a vision, no matter how it was labeled.

Casa Tabarelli

In 1968, Carlo Scarpa was invited by his close friends, Laura and Gianni Tabarelli, to the slopes of the vineyard village of Cornaiano near Bolzano, Italy. The couple, who were regular patrons in the circles of the Italian design elite, founded their furniture showroom through which they sold Gianni’s pieces. At this point in time, Scarpa had already established a name for himself within the world of architecture, and having built up a strong relationship over the years, they asked him to design a house for their family alongside his longtime collaborator, Sergio Los. The result is a work that has been rarely seen with timeless furnishings and works of art.
