“In nature nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything changes.”

Antoine Lavoisier 

Creativity has been part of Boca do Lobo’s purpose and creative’s DNA. Breaking creative boundaries and being able of getting better at every step of the journey is what moves our designers and talented artisans.

After the huge success of Metamorphosis Series, presented for the first time at Salone del Mobile in Milan, Boca do Lobo gives a step forward and returns to Maison et Objet Paris to present the newest dining table, designed to strengthen this unique concept.Boca do Lobo Returns to Maison et Objet to Present Metamorphosis Table (3) Maison et Objet Boca do Lobo Reveals New Dining Table at Maison et Objet Boca do Lobo Returns to Maison et Objet to Present Metamorphosis Table 3

The first Metamorphosis’ three-piece set, composed by our reinterpreted Diamond sideboard and two mirrors, was inspired by the great novel of the 20th Century, written by the phenomenal thinker Franz Kafka. Created to put aesthetic standards and the meaning of beauty to test, Metamorphosis Series digs deep introspection, unknowingly looking for meaning or something to hang on to.  It also represents the life cycle with different stages and different goals.Maison et Objet Boca do Lobo Reveals New Dining Table at Maison et Objet Boca do Lobo Returns to Maison et Objet to Present Metamorphosis Table 2 e1472478039814

Metamorphosis Dining Table has come to symbolize the evolutionary history of life, representing the last stage of the cycle through the usage of sculpted fossils on display at the top of the table. It also represents the effort made by our designers to questioning the existence of things, by answering a simple and basic question: “How can we define something as living?”

According to Boca do Lobo’s quality signature, Metamorphosis Dining Table embodies handmade techniques such as wood carving, metalwork and polishing, executed by some of the best craftsman in the country. A unique product for those who have a peculiar taste for limited edition pieces and conceptual designs.

Representing the final stage in the cycle of life, Metamorphosis Dining Table is not the last design for this out of ordinary line, but the living proof of our permanent craving for evolutionary pieces an exclusive design. Just like happens in nature and in the universe, in the design world, “nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything changes”.

Maison et Objet Paris 2016 – Campana Brothers For Lasvit http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/design-products/saturdays-talks-maison-objet-missed/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/design-products/saturdays-talks-maison-objet-missed/#comments Mon, 25 Jan 2016 23:18:43 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=3283 Misshapen glass bubbles appear to be sprouting from this chandelier by Brazilian design duo Humberto and Fernando Campana, which will be shown at Paris trade fair Maison&Objet this week. Created for Czech lighting brand Lasvit, the Fungo chandelier was influenced by the shapes of mushrooms growing on wood.

An ancient glassblowing mould in the basement of the company’s factory had succumbed of humidity and was found covered in fungi. The Campana brothers used this as a starting point for their design. “When we went to the Lasvit glassworks in Lindava, we visited their basement where the wooden moulds used to create the shapes of their glass pieces are stored,” said Fernando Campana. “We noticed a kind of mushroom that grows on them thanks to the humidity. This scenery inspired us to create this piece.”

The chandelier has six arms, made from sections of wood that alternate between solid pieces and pairs of slats. The batons are arranged so each is angled slightly at the overlapping joint, creating a jagged curve to the branches. Glass bulbs that appear flattened and crinkled are sandwiched between the wooden slats positioned vertically, where the LEDs are also held. “Our main purpose is to create a shock between the formal rigidity of the chandelier’s wooden structure and the pieces of glass that seem to spontaneously germinate from the wood,” said Humberto Campana. The piece is hung from a length of rope, which attaches to the ceiling via a hexagonal sconce.

The brothers regularly use natural forms and materials in their work . They previously created an indoor “forest” of flax and wood for an exhibition in Sweden, and produced a cabinet from the skin of the world’s largest freshwater fish. “Our work has always been inspired by nature, and we wanted to mix it with Lasvit’s tradition and to fuse their techniques with natural materials,” Fernando said.

The Fungo Chandelier was first launched in 2015. Lasvit will exhibit the design at Maison&Objet, set to take place at the Nord Villepinte exhibition centre outside Paris from 22 to 26 January 2016, along with a set of crystal-shaped lamps by Jan Plecháč and Henry Wielgus. The brand’s collection of glass lighting also includes designs by Nendo, Arik Levy, Maarten Baas and Daniel Libeskind.
