Catalogue Note

The Perished Collection, composed of limited-edition furniture pieces including this triptych bench and cabinet, is emblematic of Studio Job's work.
As always researching to combine traditional and modern techniques, in this series the inlays were cut using high-tech lasers and assembled by expert craftsmen using the 17th century marquetry method.
The intriguing pattern composed of animals skeletons including monkeys, crocodiles, birds, seahorses and others is one of their most iconic design making these highly collectible pieces.
