MONOLITH Stool & Side Table


• 1873
A monolith is defined as a block of stone, either natural or hand-carved, that comprises one element alone and constitutes a free-standing monument. Many monoliths have been considered sacred, in numerous civilisations, since prehistoric times. This was the case of the menhirs in the Neolithic era and the steles for the Mayans. In 1873, William Goss discovered one of the greatest monoliths known today: Uluru, the red monolith that was a sacred place for the Aborigines, who believed it to be the centre of the world. As with all monoliths linked to a divine power, it is a place for meeting, sharing, and exchanging. Although most of its “walls” are smooth, polished by nature, some are marked with cracks and crevasses where eucalyptus trees grow. These imperfections are an ode to life itself.

Taking pride of place in the hierarchy of metals, gold is a source of fascination for men and minds. A symbol of immortality, its natural shine and elegance never fade. Unaffected by air, resistant to all acids, this substance seems to inextricably defy time and mankind. Strict and meticulous steps are necessary in order to reveal the substance of each piece. It is with great respect towards the purest traditions of the master gilders, retained and passed down over the centuries, that the gold leaf process is applied. The final result demonstrates coatings as sumptuous as they are unique, assuring artistic authenticity in each Monolith.
