Kou | Marcos Amato
The Sahara collection (that comprises the coffee tables Emi and Kou) was designed after long days trying to portray the calm and breathtaking landscape of the farms and wheat plantations that surround Marcos' creation place. But in the evening the sun went down the hills creating a continuous silhouette highlighting their peaks.
The continuity of the pieces is characterized by a precise fit of the feet directly in the table plate without a fastening element.That makes their design minimalist and light after the raw form is sculpted by hand.
The coffee tables are signed, dated and numbered.
