Attributed to Domenico 'Ico' & Luisa Parisi (1916 - 1996)

A walnut and Egyptian alabaster serpentine side table

In 1948 'Ico' & his wife Luisa (who had trained under Gio Ponti) opened their own studio - La Ruota - at 24 Via Diaz, Como. Their work was illustrative of Italian design at the period, combining wood, metal & glass, with elegance and flair resulting in their designing for many companies including Cassina. Such was their links to the company that Luisa was employed to design their showroom interiors in Rome & Ico became their art director. Having trained initially in building construction, Ico also worked on architectural commissions, including the Pinacoteca in Como which now houses the the couple's archive. The photographic archive includes many of their early Como interiors....it would also appear that Ico had similar photographic interests to Carlo Mollino.
