Maria Pergay | New Color Editions
We are pleased to launch six new enameled colors for Maria Pergay’s Ribbon Pouf (2007) and Bracelet Pouf (2007) editions with new options in Navy Blue, Rose Pink, Green, Berry Red, Brown, Periwinkle and Gold.
Throughout her career, Pergay has consistently employed color in her stainless steel designs. A balance between sculpture and function, Pergay’s Ribbon Pouf and Bracelet Pouf embody her capricious humor, and nod to her early 1960s work in silver that featured buckles and bows.
Bracelet Pouf, with its oversized stainless steel buckle attracts the viewer with its playful quality, while Ribbon Pouf demonstrates Pergay’s innovative ability to bend steel like silk and to portray a delicate form while disguising its actual strength.
Pergay said of the Ribbon Pouf design, “I love this piece because it’s everything I expect to do with stainless steel.”
These new editions trace the designer’s penchant for the fantastical and connect the six decades of her career. Having pioneered the use of stainless steel in furniture, Pergay has ceaselessly challenged the inherent limitations of her primary material.
*The Ribbon Pouf is also available in several finishes: stainless steel, dark grey tinted steel, bronze tinted steel, and red enameled steel.
