NEW YORK CITY, BOFFO SHOW HOUSE
New York City, May-June 2012: Boffo Show House exhibition of design, and installation work in Interior
Design is presented through four themes. These themes include Nature, Play, Work, and Future. The goal of these themes is to allow BOFFO to investigate the boundaries of contemporary life and the compartmentalization of urban living while questioning standards of interior design. These themes are representative of what is western, holistic, living, and what aspects of life are important to healthy and happy lives.
Antonio Pio Saracino’s work was included in the Boffo Show House Exhibition in the room Future where it was featured his Egg Shelves bookcase, and in the room Play where it was featured his Clover chair.
The Egg Shelves is an egg-shaped sculptural bookcase, and it is composed with a system of vertical and horizontal shelves. All the pieces have different profiles and are assembled together in the perfect shape of a seamless curved volume. The Egg Shelves is made using lightweight MDF with a lacquer finish and available in many different colors.
The Clover Chair offers a visually bold look that is particularly welcoming – harmonious and balanced with curved lines and casual elegance.
The clover-shaped lounge is extremely light, made with rubber foam and finished with a special coating in any color for outdoor use. The three clover-petals composing the body of the lounge chair are hollow to allow easy movement.
