An exquisite and invaluable room divider, an expressive and technical synthesis of fine jewellery and precision manufacturing, was showcased at EDIT Napoli. This extraordinary object created by Giampiero Bodino for De Castelli integrates the designer’s eclecticism and the company’s unparalleled expertise, resulting in a visually captivating decorative piece.
Para-Vimento comprises a multitude of geometric metal modules, each shining brightly with different finishes that include stainless steel, copper and brass. These materials have undergone special treatments and oxidations as part of De Castelli’s meticulous research, giving rise to a series of inlays and designs that draw inspiration from the floors of Palazzo Litta, where the work was first shown during the Doppia Firma (a project by Fondazione Cologni and Living Corriere della Sera) at the last Salone del Mobile.
Para-Vimento represents a convergence of artistic heritage, exceptional craftsmanship and a creative reinterpretation of a nostalgic object. In doing so, it gives new significance to the contemporary living space, effectively defining areas within today’s increasingly multifunctional open-plan environments.
De Castelli dialogues with Giampiero Bodino’s elegant and refined design language, showcasing a harmonious blend of textural experimentation and manufacturing precision in this new phase of its journey, unique on the international scene, which finds an excellent platform at EDIT Napoli – following the one in Milan – to consolidate its identity as a highly esteemed source of exceptional craftsmanship and original results that never cease to amaze.
