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 colours echo his work as a photographer. The collection takes its name from one of his works.

Francesco Balzano

Background.

Francesco Balzano was born and grew up in Paris, yet his visual culture is imprinted with the images of Venice, Florence, Rome and Capri – where he used to spend his summer holidays. He studied interior design and architecture, and then joined the famed studio of Joseph Dirand, working on prestigious projects. In 2018, he opened his own studio and started designing custom and limited editions of furniture pieces for art and design galleries all over the world, whilst continuing his work as interior architect for private clients.

Signature Style.

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”.
