"EVERYTHING GOES with Mattia Bonetti

The rule is:  if it looks like a Bonetti, it's probably not.  Known for his wildly imaginative and wide-ranging furniture and objets d'art, the Swiss-born, Paris-based designer Mattia Bonetti takes a tour through myriad styles and art movements, making stops from surrealism to rococo to minimalism, then arrives at a radical eclecticism that's all his own.  From metallic tables meant to evoke strings of chewing gum pulled from the pavement by a shoe sole to acrylic cabinets decorated with menacing brass spikes to an asymmetrical, multicolored leather chaise that looks like a melted Jeff Koons sculpture, Bonetti's fantastic creations have injected the design world with a bit of beautiful chaos - and without their creator ever committing to one look, one material, or even one philosophy of design."
