As you can guess, Maison Matisse owes its name and raison d’être to Henri Matisse. Created by the fourth generation of the painter’s family, it deploys its universe through objects imagined by emerging or confirmed contemporary designers. This year, Maison Matisse decided to expand their decor collection with a set of pieces designed by Cristina Celestino, whose rich artistic vision and use of decorative motifs blend with the legacy of the past.
Between the excellence of know-how and the desire to share, Maison Matisse wants to carry the values of Henri Matisse and, together with the amazing vision of Cristina Celestino, they were able to present some amazing pieces with that contemporary vibe.
A sofa, an armchair, a folding screen, two coffee tables, a rug, a wallpaper and a selection of home accessories are the stars of this permanent collection, inspired by the iconic still-life Intérieur Aux Aubergine (1911), which is regarded as one of Henri Matisse’s most decorative paintings.
Cristina Celestino’s projects combine historical and contemporary references from the world of fashion, art and design. This collection was developed around three themes. The textures drawn by Matisse often all-over, are a combination of geometric shapes and organic forms, layers of signs and references that play with scale effects, orientalism and abstract floral design.
The furniture in the Intérieur aux Aubergines collection, inspired by the eponymous painting by Henri Matisse (1911), is accompanied by a series of decorative objects also designed by Cristina Celestino herself. Here it is one more reason why we listed the amazing Cristina Celestino as one of the Top 100 Product Designer of the World.
