TASTE OF WOOD

Taste of Wood è un elogio divertente all’olio di oliva e ai complementi d’arredo in legno. Questa tematica sempre cara ad Antonio, si basa sulle tecniche tradizionali usate per proteggere e trattare il legno d’ulivo. L’olio d’oliva può essere utilizzato come ingrediente (cibo), ma anche per idratare la pelle o lubrifcare ingranaggi. Puoi sognare di sederti sotto un albero d’ulivo e degustare del buon olio calabrese o con lo stesso lucidare i tuoi mobili. Basta poco: un piccolo cucchiaio, un dosatore, un soffice tampone, un’oliera… una famiglia di prodotti fedeli, per servirti dell’olio e perchè no? Servirlo al tuo tavolo o alla tua sedia! Il legno d’ulivo, è definito ‘gustoso’ grazie alle sue venature e ai nodi. Gustoso è anche il suo frutto: l’oliva, il cui estratto, l’olio, anch’esso elemento cibo è anche trattamento per pratiche artigianali e nasce da particolari tecniche di lavorazione delle olive.

Taste of Wood is a funny eulogy to olive oil, to olive wood, to wooden furniture and has for background the artisanal techniques, always so important for Antonio, used to finish and preserve it. As we all know, Olive oil can be used fro different purposes, for the skin in mechanics but can also be used to polish of the olive wood. When you are sitting under an olive tree you can dream about tasting some really good Calabrese olive oil but not only! You can also start thinking about furniture and start polishing them with passion. A little tea spoon, a soft tampon, an oil dispenser… a family of products faithful to serve olive oil to you… or to your table, or why not to your chair? They say olive wood is a really “tasteful” wood due to his veins and nodes; Taste of Wood wants to play on the theme “eatable materials”, without loosing the essential idea of utility and quality in the products. In this project, the food element is the oil and its application on wood superficial treatments strictly connected to the artisanal technique used in the woodworking of olivewood.

RITRATTObn

Graduated from the Polytechnic School of Milan and Alta Scuola Politecnica, Antonio has developed his strong passion over many years and has already been shown around Europe, in Germany at the DMY, in Italy during the Salone Del Mobile in Milan, in Turin for the WABI SABI show, in Poland in the ceramic museum of Design Centrum Kielce and in France at the Maison & Objets, for one of his collaborations with Seletti. His latest collection Back Home had a great success and proved the excellence of his technical development and his tender love for shapes and lines, which are getting stronger and purer. For him, design encompasses many different values, concerning both objects and people.
