Antonio Pio Saracino’s furniture is of a piece with his sculptural and architectural projects. Of ingenious and meticulous design and execution, each work is perfectly tailored to its particular space, its function and form united in an elegant aesthetic uniquely (and recognizably) his own. His sources of inspiration—the origins and development of organic life and other wonders of the natural world—serve as a thread running through all his work; and these sources are, perhaps, most apparent in Saracino’s furniture, alive in his playful and expert interplay of subject, material, and composition.
Saracino has received two American Architecture Awards from the Chicago Museum of Architecture and has been recognized as one of the Top Ten Italian Architects by New Italian Blood. His work is held in the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou, Paris, LACMA, Los Angeles, the Brooklyn Museum, New York, the Museum of Art and Design, New York, and MAAS, Sydney.
