The Campi di Colore tables are made from robust, weather, and wear-resistant steel that has been lacquered in a range of bold primary colors such as glossy red, yellow and blue. The shape is long and sleek, and although they are made from metal, they still manage to offer warmth in minimalistic spaces.
Scarpulla often uses color to explore a person’s mood. Some colors are calming while others, such as red, are exciting. The use of primary colors brings life to these inanimate objects and was specifically chosen to influence someone’s emotions, and at the same time, they were used to highlight the table’s strength, simplicity, and serenity.
Maria Scarpulla’s Campi di Color tables can be viewed above and can be seen in real life at the Atelier Ecru gallery in Ghent, Belgium.
