The Apollo Collection is a tribute to Cy Twombly. Francesco Balzano drew his inspiration from the painter’s Roman house, which he photographed several times.
The collection comprises a dining table, two smaller tables, a coffee table and a column; their shapes inspired by the simplicity and purity of Twombly’s work. The materials – resin and Estremoz marble- are as soft as the lines of his paintings, and the colors echo his work as a photographer. The collection takes its name from one of his works.
Simplicity as a means to ultimate sophistication. The unparalleled mix of noble materials, pure lines and essential functions of everyday lifestyle. The singularity of each design conceived as a sort of monolithic, sculptural piece that stands the test of time. “My work is architectural and authentic; - says Francesco – it is a permanent tribute to the beauty of timeless things”.
