Good objects are like healthy trees: if preserved, they survive and continue a story of which we have been a part. Orografie

Orografie

Orografie is a new brand founded in 2020 by Giorgia Bartolini with Vincenzo Castellana as Art Director, designing for new actions, behaviors, and rituals. Orografie invites us to learn a new dedication to the objects that surround us, because good objects are like healthy trees: if preserved, they survive and continue a story of which we have been a part, but which is bigger than us and goes beyond the here and now.

The collection is entirely produced in Sicily by local artisans. Sicily has a cultural tradition of craftsmanship that has its roots in the early twentieth century with the Ducrot-Basile adventure that began first, along with other European realities such as Thonet, a production of design-oriented furniture made primarily of white chestnut of Etna. This productive wisdom has been handed down and relives today in the 'new' artisans in a new generation contemporary production system that, however, maintains that manual control, as a lesson from the past. 

Several districts are involved in the production, including the one related to woodworking, stone working and the district related to ceramic production that has an important tradition. The products of the collection are made by drawing on these skills, with traditional and innovative techniques together, the details and the material of each product tell just that.

Orografie unites Sicily with its materials and its workers, affirming these production skills as a cultural value, with a collection that looks to the future and the functionality of the products, with a story and a vision that go well beyond the territory.
