Gesto Pink Vase

​Massimo Micheluzzi’s pieces are never empty. They contain transparency, silence, air: precious things that must be preserved with care. ​Gesto Vase is the evidence of how craftsmanship can be the main character of production. Its organic and minimalist silhouette is given by the natural collapse of the glass due to heat that creates smooth, irregular curves. Exquisitely handcrafted and mouth-blown by Murano master glassmakers, its body boasts an alluring tone of pink with amethyst purple shades, the whole splendidly enhanced by a final patina whose iridescent quality creates mesmerizing reflections for increased style and chromatic vibrancy. The delicately rippled texture evokes the signature beauty of Venetian canals. 

Alfabeto Tiles

In this way the tiles become manifestations of a new aesthetic language that finds its uniqueness in imperfection.

Handcrafted of ceramic painted in a cream white hue, it is enriched with eight different geometrical decorations in red and purple shades. 

Heron Table Lamp

Lightness and vitality. Bec Brittain’s study of weights and proportions was aimed to make marble an everyday material. Designed for ​MMairo with its inner light, the ​Heron Table Lamp glides over the desk or table in an elongated, slightly angular shape reminiscent of the bird it draws inspiration from even in its colors. Indeed, herons and their delicate color palette inspired the sculptural design of this table lamp. Sitting on a luminous brass base, its elongated body consists of a tubular, sculpted frame combining white Michelangelo and pink Egyptian marbles for a feminine shell diffusing the light radiating from within. A side, flat element in Fior di Pesco Carnico marble - distinguished by gray and green veining - seals the look. 

Carl Coffee Table

An innovative and sophisticated design characterizes this smart and functional ​Carl Coffee Table designed by Cesare Arosio for ​Laura Meroni. With its strong personality, in a perfect balance between art and design, this modern design piece proudly represents the main brand philosophy: be different, be unique. “Surface design” is the term coined by Interni Magazine to identify Laura Meroni products such as Carl coffee table. Featuring a Guatemala green marble base, a circular satin brass frame and bronzed glass top, the deluxe element is a light that illuminates the glass table at the end of the brass structure, activated by touch sensor.

Assembled on a wooden frame, it features a silk velvet canvas decorated with color pastes and mouth-blown Murano glass details, and depicts a group of catfish on an azure background.
