The table Alpey and the Briccole of Venice

The Venice lagoon is dotted with large poles that, in groups of threes, indicate the waterways within which the depth of water is that it can be navigable at low tide.
These are the so-called Briccole.



Periodically, the Briccole are replaced due to wear or breakage. From the recovery of these poles you get an oak wood with unique characteristics, the nature it draws the grain through the shellfish that have left their mark their passage through the water that penetrates into the material and then evaporates. The prolonged contact with water gives a solid color and a unique and distinctive.

Is to Briccole that the designer Marco Pieri was inspired to drow the table Alpey, is wood obtained from Briccole we thought to make it happen.

The ZOOM110 brand synthesizes and expresses the creative essence of Linea G, always looking for ideas able to become innovative, extravagant and at the same time practical products. The most characterising aspect of each luxurious item, as well as each minimal or “funny” one is the purpose of a revolution of standard bathroom fitting-out canons.

From the creative flair of the architect Mr. Enio Calosi was born “Chef”
It is really curious how some shapes can be matched together in an unexpected way, even if they have completely different functions.

A brilliant and witty attention is able to identify and transform kitchen tools in something else: an induction hob in a bathroom washbasin, an oven in a bathroom cabinet and the handle of a pan in a towel rail.

A funny and original fitment around which you can create an unconventional bathroom.

The pan is made of semi glossy white resin, a ductile material which allows to create quite countless shapes thanks to a bolding moulds at first and an accurate smoothing work at least, able to grant a practical utilization in your bathroom.

The support plane on which lies the pan simulates the classical induction hob. It is made of coloured glass with some concentric silkscreened rings.

The mirror with its integrated neon light creates an elegant and endearing atmosphere, thanks to the silkscreened satin finish concentric rings.

Prato Textile Museum – an invitation by Samarreda

“All in Prato, and all in rags, it ends the history of Italy,”
wrote Curzio Malaparte in his Cursed Tuscans.

Prato city manufacturing and creative, in the balance between craftsmanship and industry, it can now show to the world his story inside the Textile Museum, which occupies the restored rooms of the old factory Campolmi, jewel of industrial architecture of the XIX century building within the walls of the medieval city.

textile museum prato museo tessuto prato

Walking through the courtyard where stands the brick chimney, through the exhibition rooms with the roof trusses in wood is as if in the background you would hear again the sound of rhythmic frames, symbol is an industrial era but in Prato went hand in hand with the artisan of genius who invented the plot tissue, of whoever designed the floral motifs of the damask.

Three stories about Crystal – Nuova CEV

What’s more common than a football, the ball of a sport that we could call “global”? That’s why in 1990 we made a series of gadgets for the World Cup Italia 90 bearing the legendary tricolour “Ciao”.

Nuova CEV italia 90 crystal

Trick or treat? Trick! That’s why a playful glassmaker started to make small stones as a way of adding life to breakfast time, the famous “Fresca” (a moment of refreshment)! And a prestigious designer has made a series of chandeliers and lamps out of them.

nuova cev crystal

Television, such a passion! During an interview on Telemontecarlo I took a gift to the anchorwoman, a crystal ring, and from that time on I have been coerced into replicating and multiplying these gifts for various actresses.
