SAVOIR-FAIRE
To make the Contrepoint dessert plate, Maison Matisse called upon one of the oldest family workshops specializing in earthenware, which was founded in Tuscany in 1921. For its manufacture, the plate is first cast and then demolded by hand before being painted with the desired color slip. As in the Italian Renaissance, when frescoes were painted on various buildings, the design was applied to the biscuit using the spolvero technique. The pattern is then made with a metal point called a "miretta". To finish, the Contrepoint dessert plate is first fired, and then coated with a varnish to give it a raw and elegant look, before being fired one last time to harden the material.

ART AND MATERIALS
 In a blue color characteristic of that used in Henri Matisse's work, the Contrepoint dessert plate is made by one of the most prestigious workshops in Italy that combines traditional know-how with modern techniques.

• Dimensions (in.) : Ø7 x H1

INSPIRATION
The Contrepoint plate is inspired by Henri Matisse’s La Musique, painted in 1939. It reproduces the varied triangular forms present on the sofa on which the guitar player is sitting. 
The painting contains themes that were central to Matisse's work, such as music, the iconic philodendron leaf, and the female figure. 
Marta Bakowski was seduced by the synthesis and stylization shown in Matisse's work, in which his search for essential lines and the balance of shapes and colors is very similar to the work of a designer.

Marta Bakowski

Maison Matisse invited the young designer Marta Bakowski to create its first permanent collection inspired by the painting La Musique (1939). The Franco-Polish designer took the palette of colors and brilliantly reinterpreted the most representative themes of Henri Matisse's work, such as the philodendron leaf, the figure of the woman and music.
