The Atelier Barberini & Gunnell was founded in 2009, by the architects Francesco Barberini and Nina A. Gunnell, as the result of a passion followed for a long period of time, creating artworks far from the industrial reality; one-off pieces and collectible design in limited editions.
The choice of the best and most precious materials, the maniacal cure for detail are the basis of their modus operandi, aiming to create timeless pieces. Using stainless steel, brass, precious wood essences, marbles, onyxes, semi-precious gemstones, crystal glass, the most sophisticated technologies and high quality craftsmanship allows the atelier to work for companies and hotels like Four Seasons, Regency Seven Seas Cruises, Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Paramount Pictures, Sotheby's, Bonhams and the Andrea Bocelli Foundation.
Works by Barberini & Gunnell are regularly exhibited by international galleries at art fairs worldwide: Art Basel Design//Miami, Art Miami, PAD London, PAD Geneve, PAD Paris, Salon Art+Design NY. Pieruga Marble is a new brand by Atelier Barberini & Gunnell.
