Hand-made: Metals

Hand-made: Metals

Advanced technology, fine craftsmanship and continuous research create a winning combination to reveal the potential of metal and its endless variations, oxidation after oxidation.For this reason the Boffi | De Padova chose De Castelli as a partner for the creation of new decorative solutions.

Faithful to its decision to reinstate the special role of metal in design and experimentation, De Castelli infuses artisan ideas and workmanship into industrial processes, leading to entirely original results.

All new processes for treating or manufacturing materials are developed with an eye to the protection of the resources used, the minimization of waste production and the use of eco-friendly technologies.

The encounter with design inspires an approach to materials founded upon respect for their potential be it hidden or obvious which emerges slowly in a collection of unique pieces. Unique not only for the hand that has created them but also for the singular cultural path that focuses on the aesthetic and practical value of the primordial material with which De Castelli shapes living spaces.

Piero Lissoni interprets DeErosion exclusively for Boffi| De Padova, a precise technique made by De Castelli, which involves monitored erosion of metal and creates irregular textures that remind us of the passing of time. A manual manufacturing enhances metal vibes and material uniqueness through three-dimensional effects.
