Francesco Marino Di Teana is a painter, sculptor, architect, poet and philosopher, who marked the sculpture of the 1950s-60s with his theories on the tri-unitarian logic which integrate the "void" as an active element of pictorial and architectural composition.
An insatiable builder, Francesco Marino di Teana designed various pieces of furniture in the mid-1950s. While he lives off odd jobs as a decorator, he develops in parallel to his work as a sculptor some astonishing creations, true hybrids between the aesthetic design of the 1950s and the “architectural” construction specific to the artist. Initially intended for his close friends and early collectors, these “confidential” works are now brought to light thanks to the research and investigation work carried out around the preparation of the catalog raisonné. The finalization of their edition also allows us to finally have direct access to these elegant and avant-garde “furniture-sculptures”.
