Matthew White and Frank Webb (founders of the interior design firm, White Webb, LLC) announced the launch of their first furniture collection, Intaglio by White Webb (Intaglio means engraving in Italian). As in their design practice, the team has created a new collection that fuses the ancient and modern, resulting in objects that add both a sense of history and graphic punch to any room.
To create Intaglio, White Webb begins by carefully selecting engravings from the 17th – 19th centuries. They then take the chosen images and hyper-enlarge them. Using state-of-the-art silk screen technology, the images are reproduced onto laser-cut forms. Inspired by pieces that were originally three dimensional, White Webb uses one dimensional images to create pieces that are two dimensional. Or are they? These witty and romantic pieces make a joke of themselves while creating a new way of seeing antiques and the decorative arts.
Attached to each piece is a signed paper label. The collection now has eight pieces with more in development. The collection currently includes: Convex Mirror - Table Lamp - Rectangular Mirror - Wall Bracket - Console Table - Wall Sconce - Chandelier - Hurricane Lamp
