MILAN DESIGN WEEK . FUORI SALONE 2018
CAPPELLINI'S SUPERLOFT AT SUPERSTUDIO
SERA candle holder
An invitation to travel
SERA is a candle-holder composed of a base in ceramic and a plate, wax catcher made in steel. Inspired by Roman torches that were used to light up a wall or light the way while walking in dark environments, SERA can be separated from its base, to create outstanding dynamic and unforgettable evenings. The use of several bases allows to leave the table and bring the moment around without breaking the magic atmosphere of the dancing light. The plate can easily be carried around, while the base, left empty, becomes a secondary base for a new candle.
About the making:
The body is made of ceramic, fired up into a kiln by a manufacturer in Turin. The process started with realizing a mold from a model in clay, then lacquered by the master craftsman. The body is presented in black or white with a black lacquered wax catcher.
Fuori Salone 2018, ‘révolutions’ collection presented in Cappellini’s Superloft, at SuperStudio
After living 3 years in Milan, Térence presents ‘révolutions’, a collection of 4 designs inspired by his life in Italy and his international lifestyle between Milan, Paris and London. The public is invited to discover the objects at Cappellini’s Superloft, an ‘imaginary yet real home, cool and eclectic, cultured and elegant […] a proper Superloft, in which the idea is to create an International home’.
The collection includes a side table APEROVOLANTE, a vase TULIP winner of a Red Dot Award 2018, a candle holder SERA and a coffee cup BOCCIOLO. The name of the collection is a reference to the circular geometry of each object conceptually generated by a 360° revolution, conveying each object its minimal and timeless aesthetic.
Each design has been a long and amazing journey made with Italian Master Craftsmen and manufacturers. Many visits, discoveries of tools and materials were made in order to infuse the objects with the indescribable essence of the Made in Italy.
