How does materiality come to play in your design?
In our design we try always to exploit the material's characteristics.
Each material can convey different feelings or significance depending how it is used and finished, such as in our Thinness Collection
in which we used the metal to express lightness.
Opacity, reflections, touch sensations are always features that we take into account during our design process.
We've worked a lot with metal because our closest collaborators are master to shape this material and this gave us big freedom.
But we've also worked with natural stones like marble and quartzite, playing with materiality and translucency.
Glass characteristics are also amazing, using the refraction effect we created a new family of mirrors.
Lately we've worked with Murano glass masters using with the glass melting technique, the unpredictability of the process is a key feature of the project. In a nutshell the material is always a protagonist in our objects.
