Marcel Wander’s work is playful, it’s fun, and reminds us that design must evoke joy. His latest collaboration with Bisazza is no different. The new Pebbles collection vibrantly blends his unmistakable style and Dutch decorative tradition, narrated in a contemporary language. In an elaborate interplay of textures, brilliantly-coloured flowers – scarlet, Delft-blue, peach pink and gold bloom impetuously on the sinuous surfaces of each coffee table. Speaking of which, he says, “The word that comes to mind is ‘surprising’. Bisazza’s affinity for beauty with just the right amount of innovation is in perfect alignment with our goal of uplifting the human spirit and bringing the human touch back to design. Together, we make the world less boring.”
This collection, which is now released as a limited edition, was first introduced 20 years ago, and continues as an imaginative group of low, brightly coloured coffee tables that can lift any room. The current collection comes in four new finishes, two versions inspired by tonalities of red and the other two by tonalities of Delft Blue. Each piece is made entirely by hand by the master mosaicists of the Bisazza Atelier– combining the glass mosaic tesserae and gold tiles in the ancient opus tessellatum manner, a style which has now become synonymous with the brand.
