Known for their ability to apply porcelain into bespoke designs, Gregory Bonasera and Anthony Raymond push the boundaries with this new collection and take the material to new heights. The Metro series features porcelain-tiled columns in three size variations.
The Metro is a reflection of Bonasera’s love of Paris. He says, “I’m a Francophile. I love Paris and it was one of my first international trips when I was 21. I adore the work of Hector Guimard, who designed a lot of the entrances to the Paris metros. Although our Metro series doesn’t reference Art Nouveau, it does reference the Paris Metro.”
The Metro series also include ‘Metro Coffee’, a striking coffee table that features one or two Metro columns with an elegant marble top and base. The series also includes stunning dining table variations, which feature the robust Butch Metro supporting a solid marble top.
