'JinYe' Coffee Table by Studio MVW, 2019
The ‘JinYe’ coffee table by multi-awarded Sino-French duo Studio MVW establishes itself as a miniature landscape for the home. ‘JinYe’ literally means Gold (Jin) Leaf (Ye). An appropriate name for a collection based on the dialogue between a brass-colored leaf with a subtile pink gold shade and the shimmering richness of the « Patagonian » quartzite, an exceptional natural granite born in a vulcanian region in Brazil. The Gold Leaf, combining a precious material and a natural shape, forms each element of the piece - top, sides, footing - in a composition that looks spontaneous while being technically very challenging. Console, coffee table or side table: each piece takes on a new and different appearance depending on the angle from which it is viewed. Mesmerizing as well are the iridescent shades of the Patagonian quartzite, its graphic pattern made of deep black, pale gold and moiré brown, and the incredible twinkling of the quartz, feldspar, mica and other mineral inclusions. Looking as if it were governed by the laws of nature, ‘JinYe’ establishes itself as a both sophisticated and fundamentally organic collection where each piece stands as a miniature landscape for the home. Founded in Shanghai by Chinese designer Xu Ming and French architect Virginie Moriette, Studio MVW is known for their sculptural, architectural forms and ability to subtly connect contemporary Western and Eastern aesthetics. With over twenty years of experience in architecture, interior and furniture design, Studio MVW has won numerous awards in Asia and Europe, including the Architectural Digest AD 100 Design Talents Award (2017, 2015 and 2013) and the Wallpaper* Design Award (2018, 2014).
