Intersection of steel and alchemy on glass
Explore the collection
Each piece of this collection is unique and unrepeatable. In fact, in each elements a texture that comes to life and makes you look to all its imperfections and stains like a work of Action Painting. Or as pieces of the lunar surface materialized and fixed to the crystal. Straight lines and see through effect remember the highly evocative Venice lagoon.
Following the silvering imperfections
More than design objects these are architectures, with the right design and structure care, which becomes a decorative theme too.
The double “T” element which you find in every piece is designed and made following a numerical progression which generates size and volume of the piece of furniture. The steel combines with reflective surfaces thanks to its ability to react and interact with the light. The bronze details of the handles, or in the decorative parts, are the precious mark that gives a sort of opulence and Venetian feature to the object.
There are also the engraved glass details with "Battuto" decor that sign every single piece with a wisdom that doesn’t belong to whom imagined them but to whom made them. Looking at the objects, you can see the depth of the transparency and the infinity of the reflected part; we stare with pleasure at the margins, following the silvering imperfections.
This is the pleasure of decoration.

I imagined – gazing at the mirror surrending to the image reflected – to get back to the glass transparence, there, where I was looking, keeping the charming reflection of the contour. This is how was born the decorative theme we experienced in these pieces of furniture.Giovanni Luca Ferreri
