Works of Whimsy

Mattia Bonetti, who was one of David Gill Galleries’ debut artists nearly 30 years ago, will return this June to the London shop with a new collection of tables, sofas, chairs, light fixtures, and other furnishings. The collection of 25 designs, which will be on display through July 19, utilizes materials such as bronze, marble, rock crystal, jewels, mouth-blown glass, and acrylic. All pieces feature the Swiss-born designer’s characteristic fancy and wit, and highlights include the ornate Congo chair available in fur, leather, or leopard-print fabric with bronze (patinated or polished) or black legs and the minimalist Bubble Gum table—a play on his popular Chewing Gum side table (priced at about $65,000), which he made eight years ago from cast bronze in a limited edition of 20 examples.
