The Italian sculptor’s latest body of work consists of one-of-a-kind sculptural tables and daybeds hand-carved in Albizia Rosea wood in Seychelles alongside three limited-edition stone tables sculpted in limestone. “My work is deeply informed by my longstanding interest in the symbols omnipresent throughout civilizations and historic periods, up until today,” Mori says, noting references to Cycladic and Primitive Arts forms. “Whether sought in historical periods or in nature, these elements of inspiration eventually translate into a contemporary and very personal language.” The series, a result of a two-year collaboration between him and Melanie Courbet, is the latest iteration of the gallery’s new Editions Courbet program that aims to support today’s rarefied master artisans.
