Inspired by the painting Interieur aux Aubergines (1911), one of Henri Matisse's most decorative works, Italian designer Cristina Celestino imagined a set of furniture pieces and decorative objects.

The collection offers a variation of sofas, armchairs, screens, coffee tables, rectangular rugs and hallway carpets, textile wallpaper and decorative objects, whose richness of form and pattern offer a reinterpretation of the original work.

Like a living painting, these archetypal pieces interpret the work’s most striking elements in three dimensions, through a set of screens that are superimposed in depth, mirroring the pictorial composition imagined by Henri Matisse.

In this spirit of juxtaposition, the Italian designer has chosen to use contrasts, not only between interior and exterior, but also between empty and full, flat and patterned, geometrics and organic softness, suggesting both distinctly contemporary forms and a certain idea of comfort. The painter’s aesthetic and humanistic values permeate this sweeping decor, where shapes and colors converge in total harmony.

Along with L’Atelier rose, La Famille du peintre and L’Atelier rouge, Intérieur aux aubergines is part of the series of « symphonic interiors », all painted in 1911 by Henri Matisse.

As in the other three paintings, here we find ourselves in a studio, in this case on Rue de la Gare in Collioure.
