While working on a Tile design for Z Collection, I wanted to illustrate the use of the tile in a room inspired by the Northern Renaissance Arnolfini Portrait by Jan van Eyck painted in 1434.
PAINTING BY JAN VAN EYCK
The oil painting on oak panel that hangs in The NationalGallery illustrates two full-length portraits, representing Italian merchant Giovanni di Nicolao Arnolfini and his wife, at home in Bruges.
LADY'S SHOES DETAIL
Given the wealth illustrated in the original painting and the Italian Origins of the merchant, for the new illustration, I chose a Prada open-back mule.

The table that became a sculpture.
Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby first project for B&B Italia was Tobi-Ishi, a round dining table clearly inspired by Zen. The design duo are great enthusiasts of Japanese art and culture and the name and concept for this table came from the smooth stones (tobi-ishi) used as ornaments in traditional Japanese Zen gardens. The overhang of the table and the vertical trapezoidal bases set at right angles generate an essential sculptural figure that appears to change shape depending on the point of observation. The search for equilibrium between shapes and materials is expressed in the Tobi-Ishi table through the many materials: cement grout, lacquered finish, marble, and oak for the low table.
