MAT­TEO CIBIC

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style Design -

Ob­ses­sive, pro­lific, hu­mor­ous and quirky are just a few of the words one might use to de­scribe this up-and-com­ing Ital­ian de­signer. En­cap­su­lat­ing all th­ese qual­i­ties is his ‘ Va­sonaso’ se­ries, which saw Cibic draw and then sculpt, glaze and fire one unique, some­what an­thro­po­mor­phic vase ev­ery sin­gle day in 2016. The re­sult was a ver­i­ta­ble menagerie of wacky pieces. Work­ing in mul­ti­ple dis­ci­plines, whether it’s a Mu­rano glass vase for Ital­ian home­ware com­pany Coin­casa, or an in­tri­cate, horn and bone in­laid cabi­net for new In­dian lux­ury brand Scar­let Splen­dour, his work bears a bois­ter­ous and some­what fan­tas­ti­cal edge that’s gained him much no­to­ri­ety in a short time span (mat­teo­cibic­stu­dio.com). ➤
