Design by Fabrizio Bianchetti
Midas, adopted son of Gordius and Cybele, was a mythical king of Phrygia. He is well known in Western culture due to his ability to transform into gold whatever he touched.
Mida collection, therefore, aims to investigate the multiple expressive possibilities of metallic surfaces, patinas and the bright effects typical of precious surfaces.
The collection consists of different expressive solutions: I Preziosi, Le Patine, Cesello, Inserti.
I Preziosi are surfaces related to gold and silver leaves, traditional decoration techniques obtained from precious materials laminations in very thin plates and some satin metal surfaces.
The particularity of Mida collection lies in the materic relief reproduction.
Le Patine are an interesting proposal that enhances the pleasant chromatic variation that time imposes, with its slow flow, on the metal surface: bronze, iron, and copper are transformed giving versatile variations.
Cesello is characterized by surfaces grooved by signs, engravings, and decorations in which the depth and variation of emerging metals constitute a personal expressive code.
Cesello was created to give life to a line of surfaces that emphasize, through the reproduction of drawings in relief, the micro-geometries and macro-geometries of Infinite Collection.
Cesello line, with micro- and macro-geometries, is available in gold and silver relief colors and it is applied on solid surfaces of Infinite collection (16 colors) and custom colors.
Inserti enriches Foliae Surfaces Collections as it uses metal surface application techniques to enhance some details of the design of Foglie, Signum, and Le Città invisibili collections. It also customizes the designs proposed by customers.
