Otto, table with wooden structure and glass tabletop by Verona based designer Paolo Cappello.
Functioning bookshelves titled Antiquity, replica of Venus d’Arles and mahogany wood with brass elements, from the series Functional Sculpture / Sculptural Furniture by New York based designer /artist Sebastian Errazuriz.
The original Venus d’Arles was a copy of the Aphrodite of Thespiae by Praxiteles, gift from Julius Caesar to the city of Arles, lost until unearthed in 17th century Versailles. Still today, the Louvre questions whether to place the work in Antiquities or its 17th Century galleries. She languishes in the storeroom, forever invisible (source)
