Driven by a passion for decontextualization, Charbit endeavors to transpose works into new settings. He finds fascination in landscapes, cultures, social norms, human characters, and their behaviors, as well as games. His remarkable collection, “Metropolis,” takes enthusiasts on a mesmerizing stroll through the streets of Manhattan, where furniture transcends its traditional role and becomes architectural marvels themselves. New York’s iconic skyscrapers serve as the backdrop for Gabriel’s inspiration, while the forefront showcases carefully selected materials and functions meticulously brought to life in wood or metal. The “Metropolis” collection encompasses a range of furniture pieces, including desks, consoles, sconces, and room dividers.

Reflecting on his line of furniture, Gabriel shares, “If I were to describe this collection, I would say it resembles me.” Recalling the inception of his creative journey, he reminisces about designing his first furniture piece in his Buenos Aires room. A simple yet playful design featuring two towers of different sizes placed side by side, with a man comfortably seated on the smaller one, leaning against the taller tower. This chair evoked great amusement in Gabriel, prompting him to explore variations inspired by specific architectural styles from diverse cultures, which he aptly named “Sillas del mundo,” chairs of the world.
