Refined Designs Paying Tribute To Rome
Roman design gallery Giustini / Stagetti Galleria O. Roma and design studio Formafantasma collaborated to create a collection of elegant design objects that reflect their city’s artisanal and architectural heritage.
Fonderia Battaglia, the series of objects is collectively named ‘Delta’, referring to the delta of River Tevere and expressing “the characteristic mix of architectural styles of the city that as sediments have layered over the centuries,” according to the designers. Crafted from materials such as metal, porcelain, wood and marble, the collection includes lights a lantern, a mirror, shelving and a cabinet. Taken together, the pieces “result as a coherent body of work that more then delivering a portrait of a city. It uses design to draw unexpected links between historical periods in search for timelessness.”Curated by Domitilla Dardi and produced in part by
