Zanellato/Bortotto Studio Creates Painterly Effect Of Marea Collection

The traces of time are drawn one on top of another, infused into the changing skin of the rigorous metal forms that define these cabinets and chests.

Like the tide (marea in Italian) leaves its mark, wave after wave, even here the hand of the craftsman has left its sign, oxidation after oxidation, creating a painterly effect that resembles water’s erosion of the material. Somewhere between design object and work of art, each piece in the collection, composed of a chest of drawers, low credenza, and cabinet, is unique thanks to an entirely hand-crafted finish that transforms the metal surface into a delicate watercolor.
