Intersection of steel and alchemy on glass
A meaningful collection thanks to its unique manufacture and finishing
"A strong cultural background and the passion for art are both the core of this collection" - said Giovanni Luca Ferreri, architect and designer.
"Each collection that I have designed shows deep roots into the art world. For the K. Collection, I was inspired by the "Arte Informale" movement and its way to artistically treat surfaces. In these surfaces, there is a continuous search for abstraction and shape".

Artistic spotted effect on mirror finish glass
All supporting structures of “K.” Collection have been designed by joining points in space.
These structures define clear and three-dimensional geometries, in contrast with the spotted texture of the flat surface of each piece.
Metal frames serve as pure structural support of the “lunar” surfaces, which play the main character in this collection.
"This collection has been developed in opposition of mere design themes. Art is the reference point, which constantly brings personal expression into interiors. Expressiveness is combined with both formal and functional aspects typical of furniture and design accessories".

Giovanni Luca Ferreri tells all about his K. Collection
"Manipulating the glass surface by corroding its mirrored finishing is a handmade process that can partially be controlled by manual skill. Each drop of salty solution that ruins the thin layer of mirrored finishing is actually a surprise.
The glass reacts differently every time, according to the time gap between the moment when each drop of salty solution touches the surface and when it dries.
This results in a uniquely different, corrosion of the mirrored surface every time. Timing is the key factor in this handmade process".
