Imbued with individuality and craft, Table Objet expresses the distinctive approach of architectural interior designer studio, Maison Arabella. As a studio driven by originality and a desire to empower personal taste, Table Objet is a versatile piece intended to enable this self-expression and enhance a range of different aesthetics.
The design uses a new technique to make a resin and marble surface. Celebrating British making, Maison Arabella worked closely with a craftsman based in East London to develop a terrazzo-inspired design, resulting in a modern, seamless look. The finish is created by selecting the standout pieces of marble, which are then hand-arranged on a tray made to bespoke measurements. Next, the resin is poured over marble pieces to create a polished finish.
For Maison Arabella originality is the point. What makes the studio unique is its approach, which starts with learning about its clients to understand their personality, lifestyle and design identity.
This one of a kind surface is then suspended on a base made from two pieces of 6mm thick metal welded with the utmost precision, a skill that requires incredible expertise to ensure a seamless finish. Clients are able to choose from two contemporary finishes, satin brass or matt black, both with a sleek and sophisticated aesthetic.
Table Objet is available in three distinct surfaces, the signature grey, which is exclusive to Maison Arabella, black and white or black and green. However, in-keeping with the studio’s personalised approach to its interior design work, it can also be made to entirely bespoke, including customised resin and marble combinations along with other finishes.
For Maison Arabella originality is the point. What makes the studio unique is its approach, which starts with learning about its clients to understand their personality, lifestyle and design identity. Immersed in internationalism and craft, Maison Arabella’s global perspective and extensive design credentials are the foundation of everything it does. Whether commercial or private, its design work combines culture with meaning and innovation to transcend aesthetics for aesthetics’ sake and instead inspire new ways of living.
The team is headed up by the studio’s founder, Arabella Bassadone. A trained interior designer with a BSc in Investment & Finance in Real Estate, Arabella led global projects for top design firms, such as Candy & Candy and Katherine Pooley, before founding Maison Arabella in 2016. She has an appreciation of blending different styles and eras, from design masters to humbler craftsmen, bold colours to subtle shades and variations in scale, believing that design should convey new meanings while focusing on user experience and wellbeing; the pinnacle of ‘art de vivre’.
Originality is at the core of her creations, sparking emotion and reflecting its user. Disliking repetition, her style rejects rules and instead she develops creative solutions, freely playing with ideas without preconceptions or prejudices. This distinct approach, which is shaped by her diverse cultural background and ability to balance business acumen with creativity, has seen Maison Arabella evolve into a creative, culturally savvy and visionary design studio.
