Ischia

In the beginning there were rocks, shaped by the wind and the waters, veined stones, perfectly overlaid or slotted together by nature. Then, when organic shapes inspired artistic forms, we saw monoliths such as those of Barbara Hepworth and abstract paintings from Serge Poliakoff. Descended from this same line is the new design by Pearson Lloyd, a modular system influenced by natural shapes and artistic allusions, destined for collective settings. Ischia comprises a number of freely-combinable individual components: the seats can be single or double, and come with or without a backrest. The system also offers the possibility of adding a table or a woven cane screen, to keep any given area separate and hidden away. The components have an essential feel, with soft shapes and oblique lines, balanced out by the strong finishes of the wood or marble bases that connect them up.
