Presenting at Denfair 2018
Eclipse Coffee Table - Ottoman
Designed in Melbourne by architect Marta Figueiredo, the two-tiered Eclipse coffee table ottoman plays with height, texture and functionality – creating a striking visual piece.
The elevated circular stone top floats above the upholstered base, utilising the cavity as concealed storage. The moon-like surface of the Galaxy Dolomite stone sits motionless, while the upholstered vertical fabric pleats of the base orbit the table with a steady rhythm.
The circular shape of the stone is a fixed form while the upholstered base design was developed to be stretched or shrunk in size, alluding to eclipsing forms.
The Eclipse base is made of structured, water-repellent woven wool from the Portuguese mountains offering 65 colours.The tactile vertical stitch is hand sewn by the seamstresses at the Burel artisanal factory.
The Galaxy Dolomite stone, rich in quartz adds hardness to allow the top to be thin at 15mm.
Working with our local upholsterer and stonemason we have achieved an elegant blend of beauty and function. The Eclipse is a dynamic and sophisticated coffee table suitable for any sized space commercial or residential, with the option of 600mm or 1000mm diameter stone top and customisable base.
Candy Ottoman - Stool
This ottoman is an eye candy object! Feminine, glamorous and absolutely fabulous with simple shapes and frills, the “Candy-Stool” remind us of a bonbon.
The “Candy” is part of the totem family created to showcase the colourfulness and opulent 3D-stitches of the burel fabric at DENFAIR.
The ottoman’s design was based on the curly-frills of the “Cortes” stitch and the way this pattern moulds to round shapes. Each loop of the fabric is a labour of love individually hand cut at the burel factory in the Portuguese Mountains.
The outstanding quality of the woven felt makes burel fabric perfect for commercial use.
Together with our local upholsterer we mastered the challenging curved join details, achieving lasting beauty and quality.
With a nostalgic nod to 50’s Hollywood glamour film stars, the Candy stool evokes emotion and invites one to run a hand over the tactile curls.
The Candy ottoman both heightens and lightens the experience of any space – be it a hotel lobby or a home. With its vibrant tricolour combination, Candy is vivacious, fun and an original art piece that is a must for any collection!!
La Bête Sconce
Iva Viana & Marta Figueiredo
Le Bête Sconce was inspired by Jean Cocteau’s “La Belle et la Bête” 1946 film. The light and airiness of the bulb coupled with the solid plaster hand create a fine balance between minimalist and classic, a sculptured form and the functional object.
This original sconce has resulted from a Figgoscope Curates and Iva Viana Sculpture Atelier design collaboration.
The plaster hands that form the base are crafted by Iva Viana’s atelier in Portugal and the light components are assembled in Melbourne.
For the bedside, options include black or white cords and matching switch buttons, or La Bête Sconce can be custom ordered as a cordless option.
Burel Fabrics & Cushions
For 2018, the Burel Mountains come up with deep, rich and moody shades for their 100% wool woven felt fabric range. In a blend of colours, they’re playful surface, creates a great variety of vibrant undertones which inspired Figgoscope’s new cushions collection.
Available in 18 three-dimensional patterns the Burel cushions uplift interiors by smoothly blending style and practicality. Their tactile surface becomes alive when the Burel fabric is structured, folded or pinched into dynamic patterns. Each pattern is customisable in 66 colours with optional contrasting stitching to suit any project. Seasoned seamstresses hand-stitch the pattern’s pleats and folds from their studio high in the Portuguese mountains, creating a striking spectacle of light and shadow.
Burel Mountains Originals
With a modern twist on secret patterns dating back to 1950’s, Burel throws make sophisticated additions to everyday life by naturally exuding the authenticity of the village weavers of Portugal’s Serra de Estrela. The weavers’ ancient know-how blends with the vibrant range of colours to create a soft, warm blanket of woven Bordaleira sheep’s wool. The unique weaving process native to Portugal’s north gives these throws a double-sided effect, adding versatility with two different design options in one.
The strength and resistance of the woollen fibers deliver a machine washable artisanal fabric. Various colourful and dynamic weaves inspire unique combinations, creating original throws that suit any mood or intent.
