A meaningful collection thanks to its unique manufacture and finishing
A crossroad of lines draws shapes that change from every perspective of the observer
"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 designed shows deep roots into the art world. For K. Collection, I took inspiration from "Arte Informale" movement and its way to artistically treat surfaces. In these surfaces, there is a continuous search for abstraction and shape".

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.

When glass looks like the lunar surface
Inspiration came from astral charts
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".
