A fairy forest where you can find refreshment in the new table set Amanita, in white and coloured version
The Amanita collection immerses us in the eccentric, provocative, funny and absurd world of Italian designer Marcantonio! Amanita is a dining table and stool set that looks like it came straight out of an enchanted forest! These giant mushrooms populate our interiors in a surreal, ironic way, as if to remind us of the unbreakable link that exists between man and nature. Marcantonio: “I find truth in nature: animals, plants… Nature is always unequivocally right.'' Marcantonio explores how concepts such as man and nature, animal and plant, or nature and technology feed and interpenetrate each other.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
By creating this collection, designer Marcantonio is exploring themes like the relationship between man and nature, art and design, philosophy and the way things are. These sculptural objects, at the boundary between art and design, create a dreamlike, poetic, fantastical world.
After attending the Academy of Fine Arts, Marcantonio started creating unique pieces of design, enriching them with artistic concepts. He is quickly becoming one of the most esteemed Italian art designers of his generation. Connections between people and nature are his favourite theme, interpreting both the dynamics and beauty of them.
Founded in 1964, Italian lifestyle brand Seletti focuses on presenting design projects that showcase the creative characteristics synonymous with Italian excellence. Linking design to pop art in the most charming and irreverent manner, Seletti’s collections blend art with daily life icons.
Since its inception, Seletti has always followed its own rules. From iconic lighting and art de la table to statement objects and furniture, Seletti’s collection of irreverent pieces blends art with the everyday and are designed to make life more fun and exciting.
Seletti is now led by Stefano and Miria Seletti and has expanded into a range of collections embodying enthusiasm, passion, creativity, and experimentation.
Stefano has always believed in reinvention and works with a range of young Italian and international designers to evolve their designs. By also working with people outside of the design world, Stefano can look at the process from new angles, his unconventional and non-academic background lead him to break down barriers and journey towards a ‘new beauty. For Seletti, this is (r)evolution.
