New furniture line by De Castelli
De Castelli presented four new metal designs for 2019 at the Salone del Mobile during Milan design Week.
"The new pieces are united by their experimental approach that accents geometry, embodies tonality and emphasizes texture." - De Castelli
Pandora Drawer Unit
The Pandora drawer unit by Martinelli Venezia Studio is described as a modern treasure chest and Inspired by the quintessential shape of a cylindrical vase. It is available in brass, copper and stainless steel including polished, brushed, oxidized and scratched finishes.
Made with between one and six drawers, the stackable units can be used as a storage table, bedside table or a full chest of drawers.
The Babele Bookcase, also by Martinelli Venezia Studio, is also designed to be stacked together as freestanding units or mounted to a wall.
The simple design is comprised of circular discs supported by slender stems that recall the tiered structure of the mythical Tower of Babel. The circular disks are available in iron, brass or copper as well as a variety of finishes. They also come in two different diameters.
Alchemy Side Tables
Designed by Italian design Studio, Stormo, the modular Alchemy side tables are designed to fit together in different configurations.
The square, rectangular and circular tops are created by oxidizing sheets of copper, brass, and iron and are available in a variety of chromatic finishes. The contrast concave bases are made from polished stainless steel.
"Alchemy is an ancient art whose main goal was to convert humble metals to precious ones, using an esoteric language to give materials a metaphysical quality. The Alchemy collection was inspired by this magic science, resulting in changeable compositions of tables that come together in immediate formal chemistry." - De Castelli
The Tako Console
Designed by Filippo Pisan, the Tako console features treated brass, copper or iron drawer fronts engraved with a subtle chequered pattern made up of chevrons. The simple rectangular design is available in both hanging and free-standing versions.
"Tako evokes the delicate decoration anointed by the DeErosion finish (De Castelli's own processing technique that involves controlling the erosion of the metal to create irregular textures), for a vaguely-Japanese inspired pattern that filters light, modulating its reflections," - De Castelli
