Francesco Balzano Designs An Opulent Marble Daybed For Studio Twentyseven
For the New York and Miami-based gallery Studio Twentyseven, French designer Francesco Balzano has created the ‘M5 Daybed’; a grand furniture piece that doubles as bookshelf and a sculptural work of art.
The limited-edition piece is crafted from Carnico black marble and Patricia green marble, and features a felt mat and pillow for comfortable reclining. Behind the minimal daybed is a bookshelf with six openings for storage, making it a multifaceted furniture piece that explores more interior possibilities. Balzano is known for creating custom designs as a tribute to the beauty of timelessness. “The simplicity is used as an ultimate sophistication, mixing noble materials, purity of lines, and essential functions of everyday lifestyle,” explains a statement on the designer’s website.
