The new De Castelli project is dedicated to the home. The home because we all wish to furnish the places we live in and share with our loved ones with products which are both beautiful and useful as well as safe and healthy. Identifying these themes, De Castelli has teamed up with 4 pairs of designers – Lanzavecchia + Wai, Martinelli Venezia Studio, and Zanellato/Bortotto, Adriano design – who have devised a new form of artistic expression working exclusively with copper, one of De Castelli’s signature metals.
The natural beauty of copper returns to prominence: left free from any protective surface treatments, it’s transformed into a living material, which varies over time, in concert with the people using the objects. Thus, entrance hall furniture, a bar cabinet, a games table or complementary furniture becomes precious and takes centre stage in our day-to-day activities.
The products in the new “Copper at Home” project will be unveiled at the new De Castelli showroom in Milan. This will be a special occasion to tell about the creative and production research conducted by the company, which has continued its unceasing quest to embrace contemporary themes within a frame that speaks of materia and design culture signed by Cino Zucchi.
