Creative Convergence: A Fusion Of Lavish Furniture And Art

Design and art beautifully combine furniture with works of Filipino masters.

This is an excerpt from Lifestyle Asia’s June 2023 Issue.

Many of the most cherished works of art in existence today were produced as a result of the long-standing connections between the histories of art and design. Art & Space Serie 02: The Collector’s Edition, the most recent exhibition by B&B Italia Manila, honors this creative fusion.

The imaginative concept that led to this immersive gallery-like experience is made possible through the creative vision of Glenn Cuevo, whose impeccable taste in art and ability to masterfully combine this with home interiors makes him a go-to consultant for many high-profile clients in Manila.

Glenn once again transforms the B&B Italia Manila showroom to curate rooms that highlight the artists’ works with subtle elegance. Special B&B Italia pieces are showcased in a welcoming display, including the limited edition Blitz Table by Mario Bellini–a powerful structural piece that runs in a numbered edition of only 100 pieces.
