Dolce finds its roots in Renaissance architecture. Francesco Balzano selected a rich and colourful marble that conjured the flavours of Italian gelati and the memory of Fellini’s La Dolce Vita. The Quattro Stagioni Spring marble is a marvel of nature that the designer loved working with in order to create the five stunning pieces in this collection including a darling stool and a wonderful coffee table.

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”.
