Brooklyn-based artist Fernando Mastrangelo “uses atypically commonplace materials – such as salt, coffee, sand, glass and cement – to cast sculptural objects that inextricably entangle fine art and design disciplines.”
Commissioned by the James Gallery in Paris, his beautiful piece Bench blurs the line between sculpture and furniture: the artwork comes from sand and cement, transformed into a breathtaking sculptural furniture item that challenges the way we look at traditional furniture design. Minimalistic and elegant at the same time, Bench’s hybrid nature combines artistic form and functionality in a unique balance.
