Grab a Seat
More, More, More offers a range of seating by some of the of most celebrated designers of the 20th century, including Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe, Mario Bellini, and Hans Wegner.
Mario Bellini’s Camaleonda Modular Seating Group marks a standout: sometimes referred to colloquially as the “bubble” sofa, this design has become an icon of 20th century furniture. B&B Italia has likened each piece to a “pixel”, able to be arranged and rearranged in endless configurations. Here, the seating group is pictured with Mario Bellini's Gli Scacchi tables, which bring even more options for mixing and matching.
Tapestries, Paintings, and Prints, Oh My!
Fine artwork by sought-after artists such as Herbert Bayer and Josef Albers is not to be missed.
Herbert Bayer’s Chromatic Circles Tapestry is a manifestation of the artist's lifelong interest in chromatic interplay and geometric forms. This piece has the capacity to dominate whatever space it inhabits, not only because of its large size but also because of its imposing aesthetic presence.
From his most iconic series, Homage to the Square, Josef Albers' SP IX is simply mesmerizing. In 1965, the artist described each work in the series as being "of different palettes, and, therefore, so to speak, of different climates. Choice of the colours used, as well as their order, is aimed at an interaction - influencing and changing each other forth and back."
More, More, More Design
Often referred to as the "father of Op-art", Victor Vasarely is credited with pioneering the geometric trompe l'oeil style that became synonymous with the 1970s. This chess board is a beautiful example of his work, both classic in its style and unconventional in its form.
