Ico Parisi Exquisite Sculptural Console in Walnut & Ebonized Wood, Italy 1950s

$21,500

Ico Parisi (1916 – 1996)

An exceptional sculptural console by Ico Parisi in polished and lacquered walnut. The rounded glass plateau is raised on gracefully modeled and angled legs. A sinuous, starkly three-dimensional carved ribbon, in contrasting black lacquer, threads through the rear two, extending several inches on either side. At the top, the ribbon curved deftly forward to support the glass top, serving an aesthetic function while adroitly maximizing the stability of the sleek, asymmetrical base. A beautiful example of Parisi’s exploration of structurally complex shapes and minimalist construction.
