Tracing Identity

Tracing Identity

For Salone del Mobile 2017 De Castelli presents TRACING IDENTITY, a project that involves seven female designers, different one from the other for age, origins and approach, who have created a collection of metal furniture characterized by a strong emotional allure. Alessandra Baldereschi, Nathalie Dewez, Constance Guisset, Francesca Lanzavecchia, Donata Paruccini, Elena Salmistraro, Nika Zupanc have given value to metal and its potential, enhancing De Castelli finishes with empathic and narrative projects. De Castelli invited a group of female designers with strong interpretive and intimate visions for creating a special collection of interior elements, able to dispel the myth that metal is cold, uncommunicative and strictly linked to male nature. Each piece has a precise use and a strong volumetric presence. Screens, cabinets, tables and bookcases clearly show the handcrafting skills of De Castelli, becoming also the opportunity for trying new finishes and types of manufacturing. The seven designers worked enthusiastically at De Castelli production site, together with skilled workers and innovative technologies.
