Connections for a more inclusive world

We tackle projects by accepting the challenge of ongoing innovation; we start with a blank sheet where everything is new with the intention of changing the rules of the game and updating the standard. This was thus the approach we took in addressing the theme of texture with Vimec and De Castelli.

Faithful to its decision to reinstate the special role of metal in design and experimentation, De Castelli infuses artisan ideas and workmanship into industrial processes, leading to entirely original results.

Unique not only for the hand that has created them, but also for the singular cultural path that focuses on the aesthetic (and not just practical) value of the primordial material with which De Castelli shapes living spaces.

a bespoke APPROACH

Each object, even in the repetition of form, is a creative act in and of itself, one that incorporates a heritage of constantly-evolving expertise and research.

The equation that relegates ‘cold’ metals to the margins of furnishing projects is thus overturned, bringing iron, brass and copper, in their infinite variations and finishes, to the centre of an entirely renewed stage, allowing them to finally shine with their own light.

We followed our design method starting with the study of the existing textures and the analysis of numerous examples in the sector. We then imagined the evolution of the graphic symbol but not intended as a simple,unchanging geometric vector (a line or curve determined by a mathematical function).

The 7 basic graphic symbols can form 343 random groups made up of 3 elements. The software process is based on creating a list of random numbers which are then used as sorting keys. The rotation of the alternating groups then generates the final design to be reproduced on the sheet.


Unique maps are thus created that are always different and without any tile repetition, so the graphic sign that makes up the defined area is completely uniform with a controlled random diffusion.
