There are handful designers who have had a presence in the collectible design world since its formation in the 80s. Mattia Bonetti is one of them. And it is about time that a monograph be published to document his rich, diverse, and exquisite work, I was thinking; I first fell in love with his poetic pieces of furniture when seeing them at the David Gill Galleries, but have become more familiar with his limitless creativity and with his inventions, crafted in a variety of materials, when conducting an interview with Mattia five years ago for a feature in aRude Magazine. Thus, I was thrilled to see Mattia at the reception that Paul Kasmin held at his gallery to launch Bonetti’s new monograph, which is published by Editions Louvre Victoire. He stands out among the most talented designers of our time with exceptionally sculptural furniture, love for superb craftsmanship and pieces that span disciplines. If you go to Paul Kasmin, you can not only buy the book, but also see a four-day exhibition of Mattia's latest work, produced by the gallery in limited editions.
