They are not baskets for paper, which have finally discovered their true vocation. They are cylinders made of perforated iron sheets. The atmosphere created by the light that filters through the holes of the metal sheet is unattainable with any other material, it seems enchanted.
To increase the light diffused in the environment by the basket it is opened both above and below; it can be colored, oxidized or in its natural color. The structure is an easel made of oak or reclaimed wood.
The ” AT” are a singularity in the “Cestello” family. The physical representation of a virtual 3D drawing.
The material we chose is not accidental because the recycled iron rod has very interesting mechanical qualities and it can be curved and transformed into the abstract idea of the Pure Line.
Three-dimensional alphabets, naive architectures, signs or symbols, AT could range in any direction, embrace any style, evoke an infinity of contexts. But every AT is unique and therefore original.
The aim of our research is not finding the most beautiful design, but giving a possibility of material existence to any extemporaneous idea.
The wooden lamp designs do not aspire to compete functionally with modern technical lamps, they are rather a poetic reinterpretation of them.
They work! The simple mechanisms that allow us to orient the light and fix it in the desired position, are original and exploit weights and resistances to obtain dynamic balances. They are made only of solid wood, in a unique essence or combining dark woods with light ones with color or wax finishes.
These lamps are not made of tulle fabric (We know that it seems).
The upper part is made with a colored iron thin sheet shades to resemble an abstract flower, a cloud or a digital hologram.
“Tulle” is suspended in the air thanks to a structure in raw wood that can be raised and lowered as needed, but it can also be hung on the ceiling, leaning on a cabinet or embedded in any furniture.
You choose the ingredients!
Our catalogue has to be taken as a guide among our creations, ideas and kinds of solutions for decorating your home. They are a sort of family albums which show all the furniture designed and built along the years.
You can use it as an inspirational idea and move from it towards your custom-made and personalized furniture.
You can mix the ingredients as you like it: shapes, materials, dimensions, woods, reclaimed or new solid wood. This is the starting point which leads you to your customized handmade furniture!
And then… we do the rest!
First of all we create a 3D project which gives you an idea of the result. From this step we start to modify the project as you suggest. We continue until we don’t reach your ideal furniture!
