The Bangles House of Gucci table was included in the scenography of the House of Gucci film (2021), chosen by director Ridley Scott. The table in the film was Mauro Gucci’s executive desk played by actor Adam Driver.
Important dining table with structure in mirror polished stainless steel and top in high thickness polished orange lacquered wood. Every single bangle is welded and highly polished by hand. The mirror-like finishing of the steel creates different perceptions of this particular material and allows interesting reflections of light.
The sculptural table Bangles ‘House of Gucci’ was chosen by Ridley Scott for his film ‘HOUSE OF GUCCI’ starring Lady Gaga, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Adam Driver, Salma Hayek, Jared Leto…
Ridley Scott personally expressed the desire to lacquer the tabletop in glossy Gucci orange. The table, a unique piece, was used in two important scenes which were filmed in the center of Rome, Italy.
The architects Francesco Barberini & Nina A. Gunnell were contacted by the assistant of Ridley Scott as he personally fell in love with our sculptural tables called ‘Bangles’. The request was to custom make a table for some very important scenes in his new movie ‘HOUSE OF GUCCI’ starring Lady Gaga, Al Pacino, Adam Driver, Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek, Jared Leto and many more. The table needed to be very large and have a bright, glossy lacquered tabletop in a particular orange which required a careful research and various tests. It was a specific wish of Ridley Scott himself to follow the work in process with a photo documentation as it was vital for two film scenes to have this special color with a significant reflection. The scenes indeed were important, Adam Driver personally sat on the table in one of the scenes, examination the CV of his new future in-house designer Tom Ford.
