“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” Pushing the boundaries of shape and form, Matteo Cibic’s ANIMAGIC collection is a celebration of animal forms in andromorphous design. An odd mix of humour, luxury and utility, these pieces go beyond being furniture – they are magical, sculptural objects, almost life-like, that make you smile every time you glance at them.
There are two other eclectic pieces in the same collection – the Ciuco and Mimi Cabinets.
CIUCO CABINETIt is a donkey world! Meet the dashing Ciuco Cabinet, a gentleman in his own right. This piece from the ANIMAGIC collection challenges stereotypes as it gleams in its andromorphous glory. Cast in brass and crafted with white resin inlay, the Ciuco Cabinet adds a bit of magic to any space it takes up. Behind the tuxedo lies a spacious cabinet that can hold a large bar or crockery.
MIMI CABINETMake way for some magic with Mimi. Whimsical, utilitarian and eclectic, the Mimi Cabinet celebrates life, love and luxury all in one statement piece of furniture. Her giant rabbit ears, plump belly, tall dainty legs and rich brass trims add opulence to any interior space.
