FIGURE PRESENTI

There are tables and chairs,lights, faces and carpets with the names of animals. They are figures that affirm their exterior and interior presence through easily discernible outlines

They come across as thoughts that are structured to express their responsibility as “stili” things.

The approach and testimony is neo-classical, in a period when design is lacking in charisma and objects are rarely allowed to express their dignity. In such a situation, the careful application of the classical expresses a method and attitude that break away from current trends. 

In addition to being elegant, these basicand concise shapes bring to mind shamanic symbols and are open to esoteric interpretation. They express images of figures and actions that are latent inside us. These are forms consecrated to beauty, a pantheistic beauty that is dilated and entrusted to the slow measure of time-the time and space where objects become “things”. And in their assimilation with the sacredness of nature, they become a proposal of felicitous furnishing.
