MATTEO BASTONI + CRISTINA CELESTINO for ATTICO: FLORIAN occasional table

Pure and honest volumes, sincere shapes blended with genuine materials, made in the best italian districts.

Cristina Celestino, architect, and Matteo Bastoni, fashion designer engaged a project of blending toghether their own skills. The common idea is to introduce a brand new project, Attico, which takes strength from local identity. Industrial design quality and research skills applied to traditional materials generates a new projectual philosophy. The Florian occasional table is born around the tray shape. This integral tray becomes the base for several things, enabling aesthetic and interaction customisation for the user. Utilising regional craftsmen of Italy: Florian is constructed from iron sheet matt varnished, glass, saddlery leather. The main structures can then be accessorised with a bird cage, a sadderly leather disk or a glass dome. The inspiration for the glass dome accessory comes from the south of Italy where they are often used in a religious context for display purposes of precious artefacts. This dome used in conjunction with Florian table creates a private alter of a different meaning for the user. Florian has been shown at gallery Schmidt Gabain in Zurich, Salone del mobile 2011 in Milano, AI_ fashion show at pitti fair in Florence. On 24th october 2011 on sale at Aste Boetto design auction in Genova.
