We love this new collaboration between Francesco Balzano and the Italian brand Giobagnara. Ossicle is a collection that comprises monolithic seats, benches and tables crafted with carefully selected leather and marble, in a special range of colours and finishes.
The lines are a nod to “Jeu des Osselets”, “Knucklebones”, a popular, ancient game dating back to Greece and Rome, reinterpreted with a modern eye and sharp humour, thus creating the perfect balance between organic and pure geometric shapes.
Primal monolithic features and contemporary minimal references intertwine, lending the pieces a monumental presence.
The playful inspiration to the ancient game allows Balzano to “play” a variation of the same theme by creating designs that come in leather or marble. Each version exudes a quality of its own: regal in marble, enticing in leather.
