Three poetic new designs from the Italian design manufacturer
Founded in 2003, Italian design brand De Castelli uses its metalworking expertise to reinvent the use of metal for the home and exterior. The products are developed in collaboration with a variety of designers that bring their own vision and craftsmanship to the process. With Maison&Objet officially opening its doors tomorrow, the company will be debuting three new designs: Oxymore, Ribot and Cantilever.
Oxymore by Xavier Lust is a steel bookcase that seems to have been interrupted in its movement and fixed with rivets that contrast with the fluid motion of the shelf.
In contrast, Giuliano and Gabriele Cappelletti‘s Cantilever is a structured shelf that is modular and can be adapted to any space. It is made from wood coated in different metals with three different modular shelves fit one another and can be placed in different compositions.
Finally, designed by Alessandro Mason, Ribot is a sculptured light that seems to perch in perfect balance on thin tripod legs. The handmade brass shell dispatches the LED light as if shining through a pool of liquid.
