The gold-plated scorpions and a pollock beetle ... key features of the centre table.

The Metamorphosis centre table by Boca do Lobo, a luxury furniture brand headquartered in Portugal, steals the limelight at a private villa in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, which was designed by 4A Architects, an architectural firm based in the kingdom.

4A found its inspiration in art, combining the black and white of the table, with two primary colours – blue and yellow – in specific and strategic points of the living room. Amidst artistic pieces such as a bust and the chandeliers, Boca do Lobo’s Metamorphosis centre table emerges as a black and white crucial element in the middle of the sofas, the central area of the living room, says a spokesman for Boca do Lobo.

“Giving charisma and reverence to the living room, the Metamorphosis centre table beautifully integrates the colour palette of this project, standing out due to the uniqueness of its design, materials and combination of techniques. Boca do Lobo’s creation also fits perfectly in the language of A4, by being rich in detail and fitting the logic of the brand when it comes to biophilic design, with its filigree golden creatures,” he points out.

This artistic and clean interior design project, with touches of marble and gold, highlights that the quest for simplicity can coexist with colours and artistic design pieces.

The Metamorphosis centre table continues the enormous success of the Metamorphosis Series, according to the spokesman. The product comprises a set of two tables. One module consists of a glass box which hosts three gold-plated elements of two scorpions and a pollock beetle, placed on a base of gold-plated brass. The second module is a noble marble box over a wooden structure with a gold-plated base.

The centre table has a mirror finish and enhanced by the presence of the golden creatures that are prepared for their ultimate metamorphosis.

In line with the dramatic change in the animal’s body structure, the centre table utilises new design techniques and noble finishes through a meticulous artistic process. 

Boca do Lobo seeks to encourage and represent the most authentic handcrafting techniques around the world by understanding and interpreting the past, through technology and contemporary design. It designs artistic products and accurately handcrafted pieces based on its years of expertise.

“We are fearless and crave for innovation, being able to deliver an unparalleled experience and fulfil our most demanding clients’ desires and needs,” the spokesman concludes.
