3D Visualization

When I think of “Italian” and “Art Deco” one person that comes to mind is Gio Ponti. He was able to create designs that brought together the streamlined German and American Art Deco with the elegant and luxurious French vein. I am not exactly sure who designed and built the Italian buffet that I just modeled below, but I love how this particular piece combines functionality with elegant luxury.

My 3D Model of an Italian Buffet.

“The shelf structure of this Italian buffet is characteristic of Art Deco design, combining clean lines and asymmetry with a luxurious and decorative burr wood finish. The shelf structure contains a mirror on a case with four small drawers and a twin cabinet door enclosing an adjustable shelf. Subtle, inlaid handles are attached to the four drawers and the cabinet doors. The geometric shape is typical of Italian Art Deco, which took its lead from the Wiener Werkstatte. The use of exotic timber is more typical of the French style. W: 177.75cm” (Excerpt from p. 393 of Furniture: World Styles from Classical to Contemporary by Judith Miller, Dorling Kindersley, 2011)
