AMMA at Twentieth
Sculpture and furniture have a symbiotic relationship, both have a long history of re-contextualizing form and function while expanding on ingenuity and design. Materials have always been at the center of this ingenuity; wood, metal, plastic, stone, and marble, have been pushed to their absolute limits of creativity and utility. AMMA Studio is re-contextualizing form and function once again, only this time, with materials that are not in the traditional canon. Rock salt, sand, coffee, silica, and pink himalayan salt have never been thought of as materials for furniture, but with a unique casting process that also fuses more traditional materials such as cement or plaster, AMMA creates a body of work unlike anything before. Combining Samuel Amoia's vision for design, color, texture and furniture with Fernando Mastrangelo's conceptual use of materials, and original casting process, AMMA Studio presents an innovative, cutting edge approach to furniture and design.
