Barista ….The bar, a much-loved place and symbol of sociability, enters the house, bringing with it emotions that epitomise the Italian lifestyle. Barista is a compact mobile bar with a sculptural volume, characterised by a ribbed effect comprising natural copper rods of differing diameters which create an irregular texture and give life to a soft play of light. The upper surface, also in natural copper, is slightly lower than the perimeter, thus making it useful for resting and serving drinks. The mobile bar opens like a book. Wave….With its essential shapes and gentle, sinuous sense of movement, Wave suggests a renewed, more conscious focus on the ritual of arriving home. The project reinterprets a quintessential piece Asian furniture: the shoe bench. Its humble function as a furnishing complement is ennobled and transformed into a welcoming element, suitable for gracing even the most sophisticated of interiors. The micro architecture, designed with simple, flowing forms, is produced using solid natural copper which plays with curves, solids and voids. The vertical wave-shaped wall in perforated copper lends lightness to the volume and adds a touch of refinement to the sculptural form, accompanying those who enter.
