The combination of our designers’ specialist knowledge of veneers and the expert skills in our workshops have made LINLEY’s marquetry screens renowned, with folding room-dividing screens and wall-hanging artworks, which are especially sought-after for superyachts, being the most popular bespoke commissions. Designed for Masterpiece 2017, The Cassiopeia Screen explores the possibilities between the two, so our designers devised a screen with three panels that rotate between fixed engineered brushed brass and polished aluminium supports.
On one side of the screen is an interpretation, in marquetry, of a reclining nude by British artist Jonathan Yeo. The figure is based on one of his earliest nude paintings, ‘Scarlett (Cassiopeia Study)’, 1999. The fragmented style, often used in Yeo’s paintings, lends itself well to different mediums such as collage, which in this case has been translated into marquetry.
It is the first time Yeo has collaborated on a piece of furniture and a further evolution into original designs will appear later this year. The other side of the screen, which is clad in claret Connolly leather, is laid out as a valet on two of the panels, with a brushed brass and polished aluminium coat hook and hanger, a glass mirror and walnut accessory tray. Acting as a bar, the third panel has shelves with polished aluminium gallery rails for holding crystal glasses and decanters.
