Le “Formiche nere” (Black ants) by Emilio Isgrò reflect, together with his traditional “Cancellature” (Erasures), the vision of a world where nature and culture are perfectly balanced, as if to exorcize the risks of a technological intelligence that is too often satisfied with artifice and fears to face a reality that is unchangeable, despite its apparent mutability.

This project, designed for the Intarsia collection, is entitled “Magic squares”. According to the authoress, this inlay represents small coloured squares looking like stars twinkling in a cheerful night.

The rigorous two-door parallelepiped, supported by almost invisible feet, has been embellished through inlay work, thus becoming a real poster of wood art: graffiti-cries such as “freedom”, “love”, “peace” wrap up the piece of furniture in a spiral of cheerful restlessness in red and black. Presented is a version with red background, black words and red interiors. Like a brush-stroke by Andy Warhol on the essential furnishing of a Confucian essay.
