Primitive

— Ginger & Jagger

The whole Ginger & Jagger team was very pleased with the Magnolia sideboard and asked Pedro to design a console to match it using the same construction and concept of Nature’s forms as well as materials and textures.

After experimenting with the shape of natural branches, the Primitive console was born using the same technique employed for Magnolia to obtain resistant structures that are structurally strong and capable of sustaining great weight. The visual softness of the Carrara marble and the ruggedness of the textured casting brass are a testament of Nature’s paradox: complex yet simple.

The first drawings of the console included the shape of a branch. Afterwards, the marble base and top were added. This simple sketch took more or less a few minutes. However, several months of development followed.
