"We started with the idea of creating an object, having a very impacting and elegant image. The elegance given by a delicate and modern trait is meant to give our business the edge, especially in a moment where our company is open more than ever to the foreign markets."
The concept behind the aesthetics
"The project arose in a casual way, observing a shoe shop window in an airport lounge: knowing we could count on the thirty-year experience of Cantori company, and the skills of its craftsmen in metal-working, we “dressed” the metal framework of the sofa and armchair with twisted nubuk stripes, creating a unique light and shade effect, very difficult to imitate. For the metal framework we suggested the use of precious and antique finishings, such as copper and natural brass, reintroduced in a luxurious and yet modern style."
