‘tarsine’, the new range of modular inlaid wooden wall coverings designed by serena confalonieri for portego is a modern re-examination of the ancient technique of inlay work. this was seen throughout the baroque period, imbued the flooring of the venetian republic’s monuments and buildings with the richness of its multi-colored marble, stone, and ivory decorations. the piece, which will be presented at maison&objet, represents precisely this to all effects: an homage to, and at the same time, a contemporary reinterpretation of, in terms of style and technique, this ancient artisan tradition.
