Have you ever thought that you can have your personal playful gym? Part aesthetic entertainment, part formal, the “Body Building” project promises to challenge our expectations.
Created by designer Alberto Biagetti and his partner artist Laura Baldassari, the collection was first introduced during Milan Design Week in 2015 and is a fun assembly of furnishing objects featuring an eclectic mix of bright colors and precious materials.
The “Body Building” collection showcases a silver seating bench reminding of a futuristic vaulting horse and made of finest calfskin leather, a coffee table created from a pink-tinted crystal top balancing on a set of hexagonal steel weights, as well as a crisp white meets vibrant blue chandelier imitating hanging rings usually used for acrobatics. Turned into static objects, the sophisticated gym equipment of “Body Building” depicts an ironic take on our obsession with fitness and self-optimization nowadays.
