We present to you Porifera, the sculpture / table, developed by our experts craftsmen and inspired by the organic shapes of sea sponge.
Here it is, Porifera. The name says it all: Porifera is the group of animals to which sea sponges belong. The table almost seems alive, as if it has just been extracted from the sea, carrying with it its natural beauty and vital essence, illuminating the living room with its primitive majesty. We approach the marine sculpture with respectful caution, which reflects the irregular shapes of a sea sponge. Inspired by the structure of sponge pores, this Made in Italy masterpiece of design conceived by the skilled hands of our craftsmen presents an organic irregularity and a sense of depth that make it irresistible to the touch and to the eye.
Mavimatt has studied sea sponges extensively to create this exclusive luxury furniture. If we think about it, sea sponges connect us to the long history of ourselves, a history that spans 800 million years. This makes them one of the oldest animals on Earth. The deep, silent, and immaculate oceans host these extraordinary creatures. In fact, the design of Porifera conveys a sense of immaculate serenity, a feeling of connection with nature and the sea, making it a timeless and never-out-of-fashion furniture element that matches a wide range of interior architecture.
It is made with an innovative material
A luxury design as unique as this could only be conceived through the use of an innovative material. Porifera is made with special resin fibers. Resin fiber is a composite material characterized by a resin matrix reinforced with glass, carbon, or other similar fibers. The table is entirely handcrafted by the expert artisans at Mavimatt. Each piece of the table is made one at a time with meticulous precision. Our artisans work with great attention to detail, never overlooking even the smallest aspect. Passion and craftsmanship are the distinctive marks of our experts.
Porifera comes in two editions
The first edition is the Ral Edition, while the second one is the more exclusive Galvanic Edition.
With the Ral Edition, customers can create a coffee table with color options from the international Ral color chart. There’s the option to choose between glossy or matte finishes, making the table’s body completely customizable to meet your needs.
On the other hand, the Galvanic Edition is much more exclusive and luxurious. Its exclusivity is made possible by the use of special automotive coatings made with unique nanoparticles. These nanoparticles are very small particles, in the order of nanometers, which are used to improve the properties of the paint. In the Galvanic Edition, the coffee table’s body is decorated with special finishes in rose gold, yellow gold, silver, black nickel and other chrome colors.
To guarantee the authenticity, an identification plate, handmade in aluminium by one of our goldsmiths, is then placed on the body of each Porifera.
Packaging and Shipping
The customer will receive Porifera completely packed in a customised wooden crate, tailored to its dimensions, thus ensuring maximum protection during transport from the company to the final destination. The transport will be carried out safely and securely, thus preserving the exclusive piece of furniture.
