“Before envisioning the shape of the object I’m about to design, I consider its role, where it will be positioned and its main function. For me, assigning a shape to an object it means giving it a personality, a voice, a presence. Its shape is the consequence of the analysis of its role in our lives.
In designing the series of coffee tables —, I started from many hand drawings because I was interested in giving it a “handmade” look, but with precision, a sort of a soft symmetry. I wanted to achieve vibrant silhouettes, regular at first sight, but if observed from close they would appear softened, humanized.
Here the coffee table gains its own graphic identity, claiming in silence its precise aesthetic nature.”
