Drift collection by Fernando Mastrangelo

May 12th, 2016 by retail design blog

During New York Design Week 2016, Brooklyn-based artist Fernando Mastrangelo has extended his ‘Drift’ collection with a series of sculptural furnishings that reference the structure and aesthetic of glaciers and natural earth formations. The line of rugged yet refined objects has been developed to include a coffee table cast from sand and cement; a sand and cement sofa upholstered in silk velvet; a 72” mirror; a coffee table; and ‘Petra’ side table in blue and pink. Utilizing hand-dyed sand, powdered glass, mirrors, and cement, Mastrangelo juxtaposes elements that are meticulously crafted and polished with expressive, terrain-like surfaces that are less controlled.

The collection is informed by two pivotal voyages: Patagonia, where the primary color palette has been sourced; and the Grand Canyon, where layers of earth and strata inspired the sand’s gradient effect. Each piece is unique and produced in a very limited edition. The artist presents the series as FM/s — Mastrangelo’s experimental studio specializing in sculptural objects and conceptual objects — at Collective Design Fair from May 4 – 8, 2016.
