Inspired by broken toy parts, building blocks and puzzle pieces that sparked his childhood imagination, designer and artist Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba creates these impractical yet aesthetically beautiful furniture pieces. Whether experimenting with unconventional materials choices or piercing his sculptures with unexpected added elements, the artist creates never-before-seen art pieces that aim to inspire.

For Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba, who is originally from originally from Massalombarda, creativity must mimic nature and must come freely and organically, much like the conceived forms of his non-traditional furniture creations.

The visionary artist recycles aged and unused furnishings and transforms them into sculptural hybrids that take on conceptual forms. Despite of their newly shaped physical forms, the fragments of each sculpture retain a sense of context that relates to their past history.
