METAL CHIC – The Metamorphosis of Metal beyond the Surface
DESIGN: Carlo Favaro
LOCATION: Fuori Salone del Mobile presentation / Milan Design Week 2019
DESCRIPTION: A project created in collaboration with designer Carlo Favaro which, inspired by the search for the essence of shape, is to be interpreted as a research project taking points-edges, lines-curves, surfaces that reflect light and the surrounding environment to extremes, blending into its context.
It began as an experiment in alchemy, the METAL CHIC collection was an exchange of synergies between creative thinking and craftsmanship, a combination that came together and interacted, shaping itself into unique shapes and colours.
A cosmic transformation in which the heaviness of the metal dissolves, almost magically, so that the geometric form seems to float lightly, reflecting all its beauty and elegance.
The collection consists of 6 elements that sequence the evolution of flat geometries, circles, triangles and squares become three-dimensional photograms that depict the metamorphosis of the shape in space.
Each element is made of stainless steel painted with customised coloured pigmentations, which enhance the shine and reflectivity of the metal and the special features of the construction work, ranging from the elegance of the v-cut edge, to the harmonious shape of the plate rolling and turning.
