JinYe Collection by Studio MVW
Updated: Dec 3, 2019
By much acclaimed design duo Studio MVW, 'JinYe' literally means Gold (Jin) Leaf (Ye) in Chinese, an appropriate name for a collection based on the dialogue between a brass-colored leaf with a subtile pink gold shade and the shimmering richness of the « Patagonian » quartzite. This exceptional natural granite was born in a vulcanian region in Brazil. The Gold Leaf, which combines a precious material and a natural shape, forms each element of the piece - top, shelf, sides - in a composition that looks spontaneous but is in fact technically very challenging. Console, coffee table or side table: each piece takes on a new and different appearance depending on the angle from which it is viewed. Mesmerizing as well are the iridescent shades of the Patagonian quartzite, its graphic pattern made of deep black, pale gold and moire´ brown, and the incredible twinkling of the quartz, feldspar, mica and other mineral inclusions. As if governed by the laws of nature, ‘JinYe’ establishes itself as a both sophisticated and fundamentally organic collection where each piece stands as a miniature landscape for the home.
