At centre stage
At centre stage, when life becomes complicated - with all its infinite promises, we always end up finding the objects to which we unknowingly gave particular importance. These are our childhood memories, which find new life in our children. Are they the unconscious mark of our character and our instinct? Beside them, with them, the choices of our mature selves stand out: the good and functional things we chose after sufficient thought.
A furia di levare non resterà più nulla, temeva lui. Solo togliendo il superfluo, l’inessenziale, potrà emergere l’assoluto, ciò che conta veramente, sosteneva lei. Un confronto che può riguardare molti aspetti nella vita di una giovane coppia. Dai sentimenti al modo di manifestarli; dalle emozioni alle forme della loro condivisione. Tuttavia, a volte sono gli oggetti a risolvere la disputa degli opposti.
THE MARVELLOUS MUSIC OF SILENCE
There are several reasons, none more important than the others. Obviously, appearance is a key issue. But in this case, the reasons behind
the choice are probably connected with other concepts. Life in urban areas which are becoming more and more chaotic and noisy, for example, makes silence a non-negotiable necessity. Just think about coming home and listening to …
THE IRREPLACEABLE BEAUTY OF SIMPLICITY HAS A NAME
Human desire has always swung between two poles. Something akin to the pull of gravity brings us to seek full and empty volumes, accumulation and temperance, too much and too little. Perpetual motion that ends only when we reach the essence of simplicity. We recognise this miracle
immediately every time we cross the threshold of the homes of …
THE UNSTOPPABLE DESIRE FOR TRANSPARENT LIGHTNESS
How can one achieve lightness? Is it an inborn characteristic, or is it the result of a practice of progressive subtraction? Both of these ideas can be explained by the art of design, cleverness at work through method can multiply beauty to an infinite level. The language of design, so clear and transparent that we immediately recognise it every time that…
IS WELL-BEING A GOAL OR A STRATEGY?
People have many strategies that they use when they want pleasure. Subtle, refined tactics so understated that they forget their goal. However, authentic pleasure - that joins one’s own with that of another - is evident to the eye and, in the end, not really that hard to achieve. It is the elegance of things which are well thought out and well done. This is the well-being of a cosy cloud that welcomes and protects …
THE PLEASURE OF BEING A COUPLE
It’s a common belief that choosing to share one’s life with an artist involves consciously accepting any type of unreserved eccentricity. Knowledgeable couples maintain that the opposite is true. They say that the most important thing couples can do is to consider beauty as a necessity, a pleasure that runs throughout life and connects the couple together solidly, regardless of their differences…
I have finally understood
We met at a particular time. Both of us were in phase of our lives when making important choices was an unexpected but unavoidable necessity. It was then that I realised how much organizational ability, rational spirit and tangible determination were hiding behind the dreamy eyes of the young woman with whom I was going to live…
TOGETHER AGAIN, JUST LIKE IT WAS THE FIRST TIME
A movement that is repeated. Once, one hundred,
one thousand times. Without difficulties and
limitations. Actions done without even noticing
what is happening, automatic habits learned
naturally, instinctive and functional gestures.
Feeling at home means this, too: being free
to the point of not having to think about what
you are doing. Functionality is the destination.
We find it every time that …
SINTESI: GREAT COMPLEXITY TURNS INTO ABSOLUTE SIMPLICITY
Albert Einstein thought that a physicist truly understood a theory only when he was able to explain it in simple terms. The secret of homes that immediately seem extraordinary is probably a similar concept. Creating emotions, making the complex seem simple, transforming space to make it timeless. A brilliant solution for a problem of physics …
THE BEAUTY OF A STRONG, DISTINCTIVE PERSONALITY
The path to beauty is often more tortuous than a mountain trail. Sometimes, though, it proves to be a definite road with clearly visible confines: this happens when it becomes clear in a very particular way. Recognising beauty and appreciating it is simple in these cases. Just as understanding
the language of emotions that fill our hearts when we come home and discover that …
According to some, everything is much more than the sum of its parts. A hypothesis of dizzying consequences if we think about the life of a young couple when they decide that it is time to bring together the past and the present, the present and the future. What will their house be like, what joint decisions will they make? Compress time, compress space. Without forgetting that only the mind, with all of its memories, dreams and aspirations, is free of limits...
Everything is illuminated
The homes of young lovers resonate with vibrance of newness, a sense of wonder for a lifestyle that is seeing the light for the first time.
Daybreak seems to reflect everywhere, each and every object shines with new brilliance.
Even the simplest actions, like grasping a handle to open a tap of gushing water, when done at the same time, have a feeling of freshness, of something never attempted before.
All flows, of course, but the secret is to capture the moment.
The summer was undoubtedly drawing to a close. Towards evening, at the end of a day, still hot and intense, the thought of returning home emerged unexpectedly and delightfully. It was time to close the windows and turn on the lights of evening. A time of intimacy and reflection was slowing returning…
Gold is indissolubly bound to Italian cultural tradition, art and the most exquisite handicrafts. From the time of the gold ground that enhanced features conveying majesty and brightness to the Madonnas painted by 14th century master artists from Siena to the triumph of Baroque art, gold has been the symbol and sign of luxury, complacent beauty and sovereign majesty. The Gold series is proposed as a citation and a tribute. A contemporary way of celebrating the glory of Italian beauty in the world.
HAS THE TIMELINE STOPPED?
A part and everything. The single and the group. The combination that increases results and resources. How many times have we seen it and were unable to hold back a surprised smile? There are solutions that a long, affectionate habit confines to the scenery, as often happens with thoughts that are too familiar. To the ideas that we take for granted but that, every time, can offer us an occasion to …
