De Castelli @ Milan Design Week 2019

De Castelli will be in Milan with special projects and important collaborations representing the varied soul of the company, all of them sharing R&D, superior craftsmanship and technological expertise as their common denominator.

De Castelli has doubled its exhibition space at the #salonedelmobile, invited to the new, interior-design-focused S.Project pavilion, to offer a broader look at its new experiments with metals, and to present its custom project expertise. The display is a complete overview of its collections, introducing the brand's new #design horizons, focused on the implementation of innovative techniques that involve special, complex manufacturing processes to create increasingly organic, supple forms.

For the #event, #decastelli has partnered with The Litta Variation/Opus 5 for Echo, an immersive installation in the Cortile d’Onore of Palazzo Litta. Designed by Pezo Von Ellrichshausen studio, #decastelli made the installation possible by producing a special super-mirror surface to cover the entire structure. The micro-building thus ‘disappears’ within the courtyard thanks to the shiny, reflective exterior.

In the heart of the city, the brand’s flagship shop will highlight the Italian Masters partnership launched between #decastelli and Maserati at the recent Geneva Motor Show. The showroom will host a display of dashboards, specially created using a unique hand-hammering technique on sheet metal.

Within the exquisite industrial spaces of Fabbrica Orobia 15, De Castelli interprets the creativity of Paola Lenti viainventive surfaces that shimmer as they become metallic stages for indoor and outdoor collections.

These collaborations are just the tip of the iceberg, with #decastelli also participating in: Perfect Darkness, the pop-up apartment, a project by Elisa Ossino and Josephine Akvama Hoffmeyer in Via Solferino 11, featuring a black DeLabré sheet metal surface for the wardrobes; Building Objects and the Mario Cucinella exhibit featuring objects inspired by his buildings, with trays and fruit bowls in various types of metal.

Design Week will also be an occasion to present the new #decastelli website and the visual choices that will characterise the new catalogue.
