The home is where the heart is, and for Marino Secco, his home and heart live in the mountainous interiors and the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean island of Sardinia. Chatting with Marino revealed this is his inspiration for his many works which combine design and traditions in every detailing.
Salone Satellite was witness to his beautiful the Tanit bar. The thought of weaving the colourful traditional fabric motif directly onto the wooden surfaces of his production is inspired, but what is more amazing was the way in which the two tangential forms of craftsmanship combine to complement each other.
The rugged surfaces of Sardinia could be seen in the weave and warp of the wood, which acted more as a fabric for his embroidered compositions. The result – a simple yet elegant piece of furniture that blended tradition and contemporary design.
