The Inside-Out Furniture Collection is a collaboration between designers Sergio Mannino and Thomas Lehman. It’s composed of two pieces: Lungo, a cabinet and Largo, a sideboard. Both were inspired by Italian Modernist and furniture designer Enzo Mari’s Autoprogettazione**, a 1970s collection of ready madefurniture.
“This furniture series plays with the ready made language of Italian maestro Enzo Mari, beginning with rough and slightly Primitive construction opening to reveal a gemlike surprise of intense color applied to the highly refined interiors.”

Because of the designers choice to keep the exterior less refined, the wood might have small natural imperfections. This is a made to order piece. Wood grain and shade may differ from what is shown here.

** The 19 ‘do-it-yourself’ furniture designs, which the Italian Designer Enzo Mari published in his book ‘Autoprogettazione’ in 1974, marks a milestone in the comtemporary design history. Positioned in contrast to the formalism at the time, Enzo Mari suggests the democratisation of design and creating a provoking alternative to the capitalist paradigm of mass consumption. Building your own furniture, when required, that’s the idea.
