Launching Spolia: Contemporary furniture made with traditional artisan skills from old-world materials

May 18, 2017

May 16th, 2017
Spolia is pleased to introduce its latest furniture range and exhibit for the first time in North America as a feature contributor of the Austrian Chamber of Commerce‘s Wien Products stand at this year’s ICFF NYC (May 21-24, 2017).
Open Edition ONE: The Bolognese Pop is a signature piece that can be interpreted as a side table, astool or as an eye-catching interior statement. The title refers to the original limited edition (2015, ed. 15), which was conceived from antique parquetry from Bologna and designed to maximise the rhombic pattern‘s trompe d‘oeil effect. The Bolognese Pop is a more playful and affordable version made from lightweight composite concrete and available in any colour combination.


Designed by: Tino Valentinitsch exclusively for Spolia on commission
Material: Lightweight compound concrete
Dimensions: Diameter 52cm (20.4“) x Height 49 cm (19.3“) x Edge Length 30cm (11.8“)
Production time: 6 to 8 weeks
All Spolia products are produced and assembled by hand in Vienna, Austria.
Following the 2015 Milan Furniture Fair, this is Spolia‘s second international presentation.
