Experience an unusual connection with nature, through luxuriously functional furniture that can transform any space into an exotic forest.
The Forest collection, designed by renowned designer Marcantonio, includes sculptural wonders including cabinets, seating, and accessories.
Quirky shapes, sophisticated colours and brass finishes create a sense of eccentricity and luxury.
As Marcantonio mentions, the idea was to create an “elegant irony”. Witness this ode to nature at the Milan Design Week, Fuorisalone 2023.

The happy couple decided to stop by Milan on their way back home and will be present at 10 Corso Como to meet their admirers especially for Milan Design Week.
Discover magic, as motion merges with the motionless to create a silent rhythm and awe-inspiring furniture. The Chhau Donna Cabinet designed by Elena Salmistraro, is inspired by the female Chhau dancers of India. Defined by Italian contemporary forms and exquisite Indian craftsmanship.
The collection, IDanzatori borrows from the classical dances of India and the grandeur of the dancers’ costumes. It revives some of India’s deep-rooted cultures, philosophies and stories with a contemporary design style.
It takes the spectators by surprise and into a trance like state with its mesmerising structure.
Similar to dancers rehearsing their flawless movements over countless hours, our skilled local craftsmen too, have spent days perfecting the sculptural yet functional collection.

Marcantonio (Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba) was born in 1976 in Massalombarda, Italy.
He attended the Art Institute and the Academy of Fine Arts.As soon as he graduated, he started working in the theater scene, designing scenographies and collaborating with various architects, making commissioned furniture.
He soon begins to create unique pieces of design in parallel with an artistic production of sculptures with naturalistic subjects.Step by step the two careers begin to become contaminated.
Thus his design is enriched with artistic concepts and sculpture becomes more usable.
Connections between man and nature are his favorite theme, in interpreting the dynamics and beauties of nature showing the attitude of the man who alters the original.
Marcantonio loves to think of his work as a direct manifestation of his creative instinct, also defined as natural, to realize what his mind imagined.
He has learned from Art how an idea can be elegant, which is why he’s always looking for pure and synthetic concepts.
“I think the greatest inspiration comes from nature, both from its forms and from its attitude, nothing is superfluous in nature, everything is essential, functional. I feel a strong appeal from nature, a sense of belonging, I see great similarities in the natural world, within it and also compared to our world. The expansion of a city and its streets recalls the growth of certain micro organisms, a tree remembers our veins. So, more than looking for new forms, I look for new concepts”.
