The curved neck of the flamingo is referenced in the s-shaped silhouette of Marco Guazzini’s ‘Flamingo’ console table when its sliding drawers are placed at opposite ends.
“Flamingo console represents a research on movement.” says Guazzini. “The chance to create staggered volumes with solid and void spaces making the drawers slide lengthwise thus allowing various configurations.”
“Its name comes from a species of bird, the Flamingo, whose curved neck reminds of S that outlines this console silhouette when its drawers are placed at the opposite ends. A bird living also in Miami where was used at ichnographic level inspiring the awesomeness of colours and deco architecture styles of the city.”
Flamingo was presented at Ventura Lambrate during Milan Design Week 2014.
