Talento Unlimited (Cabinet) by Edoardo Colzani
2019 - 2020, Platinum A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
I was inspired by the idea of enhancing the shapes of the object without exasperating them and using a simple aesthetic language. A cabinet that is caracterized by a unique surface finishing and a unique surface textured design.
Talento is a containing unit with a strong visual impact where crafstmanship and design come together in a wise balance of empty and full and an alternation of different depths and proportions. The new "UNLIMITED" texture in liquid metal embellishes and emphasizes the two doors. The rounded edges of the entire structure and the particular recessed handle represent a further detail which highlights the originality of the design. An architectural jewel designed and equipped for storing objects.
Design Challenges
The hardest part of Talento cabinet was to find a solution to realize the unique surface design with a innovative process. This process took one year in design and engineering research because a mould for this particular texture and finishing was not available. The final solution was the creation of a specific silicone mold to defined the surface design combining it with the liquid metal finishing.
Production Technology
Tall unit with structure in wood or lacquered wood and doors in "Liquid Metal" finish with "Unlimited" texture.
