The source of inspiration for this Collection is a modest piece of fencing equipment – the fencing mask. Unassuming in its nature, this essential part of the fencing uniform displays qualities of strength, protection, a level of concealment and a somewhat mysterious play of light and shadow on the face of the wearer.
Combining sophistication and comfort with classic materials and sculptural modern shapes, the concept was brought to life in a Collection comprised of four styles: a dining chair, barstool, a high back and a low back lounge chair.
The designers developed a series of drawings of elegant framework for multiple variations on the initial concept. Working with a multi-generational artisan workshop in Italy known for producing the highest quality Italian furniture, prototype frames were created, reviewed and finalized.
