The 8 pieces in the collection FUTURE MEMORIES, all unique, consisting side tables, a bench and a console, are each named after a city visited by Marco Polo, the hero of Calvino’s ’Invisible Cities’. They are a reflection of the fantastic accounts that lived in the imagination of brutalists and futurists. The pieces are composed of a new material: oxidized concrete, known as Metallium R, naturally producing a rusty controlled durable finish, a symbol of the passing of time. Each item is created using an ancient molding technique, one in which the lines created through the 3D printing of the mold are accentuated and integrated within the design.
Georges Mohasseb has been working as an architect and designer for over two decades. His constant search for materiality and immateriality has defined his approach to design. He creates limited numbers of timeless designs, focusing on excellent craftsmanship and a complex expression of materials. The understanding and presence of wood is key in the work of Georges Mohasseb, be it solely or in combination with other materials. Through specialized techniques and expert knowledge, Georges unlocks the artistic versatility of this living matter, bringing out its unique potential in the form of timeless designs.
