It is indisputable that another intermediary dimension exists between design and art. Marco Zanuso jr., with his table Oyster, thinks in terms of “artistic design. As a result, objects for daily use are given sophisticated geometries that can be traced back to the facets of a diamond and are enhanced by the “precious metal” finish. These objects are capable of moving through the rooms of the house, of even being used in contract situations, perfectly carrying out their function while preserving a clear emotional and aesthetic plus for whoever wishes to discover it.

Marco Zanuso (Milan 1954) graduated in architecture at Florence in 1978, with a dissertation on experimental homes. He subsequently arrived in Milan, combining his activities in the studio of Marco Zanuso Senior with a collaboration in the academic sector with Enzo Mari and Achille Castiglioni. Along the year he succeded in developing a style which is both sensitive and rigorous, while demonstrating clarity and distance of vision. Since 1991, he has been associated with Daniele Nava and works in residential and commercial architecture. He also works for various Italian companies, such as, Cappellini, Driade, De Padova and Fontana Arte. In 2003, he selected and organized the Fuori Serie exhibition at the Milan Triennale: a show of rarely seen furniture pieces from the 1930s and 1940s.
