(1) The Dummy
Bartlett bought the twenties boxing dummy at Paula Rubenstein, and Ciolli installed it as one of the apartment’s slightly surreal Beuysian homages. (One of Beuys’s best-known pieces is a stiff felt suit on a hanger, which suggests an absent man.)
(2) The Lamp
One of two in the living room, it’s a clever example of how to personalize mass-market design: “The base is from Crate & Barrel, and it had beautiful hardware in antique bronze,” says Ciolli. “We had discussed Edison-style lightbulbs, so I designed the shade so that you can see the lightbulbs.” It’s made of perforated stainless steel, and the old-fashioned bulbs are from Just Bulbs ($24 each).
(3) The Sculpture
By Hugo França, it’s a tropical root that’s been polished. All Bartlett’s Brazilian pieces are from Espasso in Long Island City.
