Francesco Cappuccio's "Louis XXI" is an ironic coffee table derived from a process of deconstruction and reconstruction of a classical Louis XVI style.
"During the reconstruction process I left some small gap between each part in order to store the newspaper that we bay day by day."
This coffee table-newspaper holder has won the international competition "A piece of furniture for reading places 2007" and will be exibit permanently at MAAM museum of Verona (Italy)
The jury record said:
"A piece of furniture with a strong ironic connection to classicism in which an image with references to modern art is inserted and an original and functional solution is added."
