After creating the Zoe coffee table for the 2018 Milan Furniture Show, Stone Italiana continues its collaboration with the famous designer Walter de Silva, author of the vase TETI which, like the goddess from Greek mythology famed for her gift of metamorphosis, can be used – by means an extensive range of formats – as a pocket emptier, light source, totem or monolith, according to needs and its size.
The vase is based on a combination of two pyramids, skilfully interwoven by Walter de Silva – along with Mario Antonioli – who enhances the concept’s simplicity by means of references to the Fibonacci sequence and the areas of the golden rectangle. The intersection between the two solids is perfect, unexpected in its delicate and complex geometric balance, conveying both surprise and solidity.
To create it, de Silva used Cosmolite,Stone Italiana’s new high-tech material, innovative for its texture and composition. In fact this new material comprises100% recycled pre-consumer aggregates differing from quartz, reflecting an increasingly sustainable and environment-friendly corporate approach. Distinctive for its unique appearance and optimum workability, these surfaces help propel industrial innovation: on one hand Cosmolite enhances, ennobles and inserts recycled materials into a new production process, while on the other it presents an exclusive “quartz-free” formula.
