Fùrca Coffee Table

Fùrca Coffee Table

In a time when the Sardinian countryside is quieting down into soft rains that will nurture the next year’s harvest, Pretziada had the pleasure of hosting an extended residency with the newly formed Mimo Studio. Over three months, Raphaelle Lhuillier and Margaux Padrutt studied the fluctuating rhythms of the countryside and the stark beauty of the landscape. The result is the collection Fùrca, three pieces that refer directly to their lived experience on the island.


Inspired both by the natural extrusions of stone monoliths found throughout the forest and the geometric forms found in historic agricultural tools, Fùrca is a collection that plays with a visual language that combines both the rudimentary and the refined. The shapes that make up these objects are a contrast in natural and human-made shapes; they refer to spontaneous forms we find both in nature and vernacular objects but also to the resolute architecture of rural places.


The finish, a repetition of a slightly green and black stain, creates a variegated and smooth materiality.


This table combines strong geometric forms with small details that refer to a particularly fascinating past tradition. In Sardinia oftentimes furniture is embellished with a zoomorphic detail that works as a talisman to protect the piece; a lion’s foot, a person’s face, a perching pheasant symbolize the mythical power that will protect both the piece and its owner. Additionally, the totem/leg is host to a small carved cavity that mimics the indentations found along the paths to sacred spaces on the island; places to leave offerings of water or food or precious gifts.
