Slim yet strong lines are splendidly interpreted by the finishes of De Castelli that combine experimental design and industrial production techniques. Each Metallaro side table — a stainless steel sheet powder-coated with a semi-matte white, matte black and délabré distressed finish — is a one-of-a-kind piece: the surface changes over time, adding beautiful accents with each passing day.
Objects have the power to make us feel better or worse, to make our life more complicated or more fulfilled. They can be annoying, invisible or exciting; they can procure well-being or irritation. They are an awkward or reassuring presence. We want to design objects which lower the background noise, surprise by their essential quality and reveal the thought beyond their simplicity.
