An experimental use of unconventional materials defines the latest body of work by artist Fernando Mastrangelo. Escape furniture collection blends dreamy, pastel tones and textures across simple, sculptural forms. The materials take on an ethereal quality, with silica, hand-dyed sand, and powdered glass creating gradients akin to a three-dimensional landscape painting.
The collection comprises a bench, bookcase, coffee table, desk, credenza, and wall mounted pieces, each translating colorful compositions already existing within nature as functional design objects. Mastrangelo’s unusual choice of mediums underscores the materiality of the pieces and creates poetic possibilities for interior settings. Silica — with its lava-like texture — composes the foreground, while hand-dyed sand is stratified with delicate veins that subtly change in tone to suggest layers of earth. Crystalline — an almost translucent powdered glass — forms textures reminiscent of otherworldly skies and bodies of water.
