Del Sogno is a two-door cabinet made as a single block using wood with vertical grain.
It is manually finished on all sides using a gouge. The burnished steel latches and hinges are specially designed and crafted. The entire manufacturing and finishing process is carried out manually in our workshop.
The wood used for this piece is Juglans Regia – common Italian walnut; not dried but “raw”. This wood belongs to the Latin tradition of furniture-making and features an extremely compact fibre which can, however, be worked without too much difficulty; it is therefore highly suitable for household items. Over time the wood hardens and becomes extremely resistant, and oxidises slightly to take on a progressively warmer amber colour. Del Sogno is a composite modular artefact. In the lower section – a practical container – the memory of rationalism is lightened by the gouged ripple effect.
In the upper section, the arches and the objects resting on the surface take us to a place of dreams.
