Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The Spider Skeleton dining table is made of mirror polished stainless AISI 316 and table top in extra-clear tempered glass.
Dining table dimension: L 270, W 100, H 76 cm.

A little black spider is crawling slowly and tired on an endless road of dark wood.
All of a sudden it holds motionless as if to rest, there is a cold and alien light shining on the little spider projecting its shadow, paradoxically gigantic and monstrous, on to the surface of the table.
The fascinating projection of the spider’s shadow gave the inspiration for this table.
We started off with a shadow, uncatchable and vanishing, in order to achieve the zoomorphic structure. The shadow, ever since slave to the body which it projects, becomes the unquestioned master and creator.

Each table is hand signed and numbered by the artists (engraved). 100% handmade in Italy, comes with a “Certificate of Authenticity”.
The artworks by Barberini & Gunnell are regularly shown at international art fairs, such as PAD London, PAD Genève, PAD Monaco, Salon Art & Design New York, ArtMiami.

Artist Profile

Born: 2009

Hometown: Ancona

Based in: Ancona

The Atelier Barberini & Gunnell was founded by the architects and designers Francesco Barberini and Nina A. Gunnell as the result of a passion followed for a long period of time, creating artworks far from the industrial reality; one-off pieces and limited editions.

The choice of the best and most precious materials, the maniacal cure for detail are the basis of their modus operandi aiming to create timeless pieces.

Every artwork has its inspirational background, it’s story.
Gigantic Spiders as tables which pass by the forests of enormous Mangrove floor lamps, transparent, yet heavy glass Origami tables, Chained up tables which seem to revolt against the immobility of the four legs.
Abandoning the mere functionality and rediscovering emotions; from the warm perfume of wood, losing oneself in the transparent magic of crystal to the cold and sterile steel, thought by mankind for mankind, mirror polished symbol of progress.

Barberini & Gunnell collaborate with the auction houses Sotheby’s, Bonhams, Tajan, Dorotheum, international galleries Priveekollektie, Ammann and private collectors.

The bench Get Lost! in mirror-polished stainless steel, limited edition of 12, was selected by New York architect Peter Marino for the DIOR flagship store in London.
