At the moment I have found extremely interesting some artists-craftsman designer as Ico Parisi, Aldo Tura an other one who can be add in my list is Ado Chale, belgian artist born in Brussels in 1928. Since his first creation, he has shown an original and unique style. He has an authentic passion for stones that has bring him all around the world to research the most noble, rare materials as fossil wood, tiger’s eye, lapis lazuli, agate,malachite, etc. His furniture incorporates these exotic materials with in cast metals. Chale’s low tables and consoles are the most sought pieces of his oeuvre. Many of his tables rest on his signature tripod bases. Simply elegant and stunning pieces. Below my selection.
