Foscari is a sheet metal partition that requires its muse from the Renaissance details inside stoles worn by Venetian dignitaries. Albino Celato has reinterpreted this historical detail and given us Foscari, a contemporary partition of either polished stainless steel or sheet metal with a polished black or painted finish. Although the classic detail dates back to the Renaissance, it has produced appearances throughout contemporary history in both furnishings and fashion and Celato’;s version is but the most current – and possibly the very best reinterpretation. The crisp lines of the metal enable for a fantastic shadow display as light travels via the partition and the reflective surface of the metal creates a stunning mirror reveal of things placed close by.
Every single metal plate consists of 1 complete detail and is connected in 4 locations to the surrounding metal plates by means of little S hooks. The holes the S hooks connect to, are strategically positioned to grow to be component of the general detail when left exposed. This clever use of detail turned function is a essential portion of the all round design. With the connector holes in a position to stay unused, the partition can be customized to any size for any place.
The silhouette of the detail is intricate and exciting and even one metal plate would make a great addition to a small void but the effect made by a complete partition is what tends to make this design and style specific. No matter whether the constructive shapes of the plates or the damaging shapes created by light and shadow, the Foscari from De Castelli is a best decision for any classic or modern interior.
