Pair of Walnut Nightstands by Tomaso Buzzi 1940s
Pair of nightstands by Tomaso Buzzi in Walnut, Italy, 1940s
These two rare side tables or nightstands are both refined and elegant in every way. The brass detailing underneath the beautifully ornamented walnut table top, create a perfect harmony with the brass handles on both doors. These sculptural Italian tables are monumental yet refined.
Tomaso Buzzi (1900-1981) architect, designer, graphic artist, writer.
Born in Sondrio, Italy, Tomaso Buzzi graduated in architecture from the Politecnico di Milano in 1923, and trained with Gio Ponti, who he became professional partners with. Before graduating, he had already associated himself with the Studio di Sant’Orsola group, which included Ponti, Michele Marelli and Emilio Lancia. The group shared Buzzi’s passionate interest in the revival of classical architecture and artistic craftsmanship, traits evident in the Novecento movement and in Milanese Deco.
