Diego Giacometti

Table basse rectangulaire aux pattes octogonales

Fiercely loner and free, the genius of Diego Giacometti combined art with the useful, a plastic assurance with a tactile taste. A great dexterity that attracted many desires and also strong support from Pierre Matisse as the furniture and objects of the artist adorned the walls of his homes. From Raoul Lévy to the fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy, Giacometti enlivened houses of taste with his artistic and utilitarian creations.
"Table basse rectangulaire" is representative of the way Giacometti plays with linearity. The marble and the golden shine recall antiquity, a fascinating era for the artist.
