Since the beginning of his pioneering career in the early 1970s, MATTIA BONETTI (b. 1952 in Lugano, Switzerland and lives and works in Paris) has approached the distinction between art and design not as a barrier, but as a wellspring of creative dialogue. Noted for his daring, contemporary vision, he blends rococo, art deco, modernist, surrealist, and futurist tendencies seamlessly into his innovative furniture pieces. As Carol Vogel writes, “Bonetti’s work captures a particularly imaginative moment at the end of the 20th and beginning of the 21st centuries when historical forms are freshly translated and familiar material are pushed to new limits. Every design, whether it be a sofa or a simple box, combines a sense of whimsy and glamour with a distinctive intelligence and originality.”
