MARCEL of Kazuhide Takahama
We took several steps in the last century to give meaning to the not to be taken for granted link between design and time. We have challenged that invitation that pushes those who design to consider solely the new. We, on the other hand, have sought out something from yesteryear that still today conveys wisdom, strength, purity of design.
Marcel is therefore the re-launch of Takahama's original 1974 design, which we want to continue its journey through the history of design.
Faithfully re-proposed in chromed metal rod and with clear or smoked glass, this revisitation develops some variations in the materials, bringing in lacquered wood and marble as top alternatives and extending the suite with new sizes and heights.
