Gallotti&Radice. Not Only Glass
15/10/2020 - Craftsmanship, mix&match material, stylistic experimentation and Italian know-how for total living. This is the Gallotti&Radice2020 Collection presented during Milano Design City at Salvioni Design Solutions.
Among the company's new and longstanding collaborations, Massimo Castagna, Studiopepe, Dainelli Studio, Pinuccio Borgonovo, Carlo Colombo, Federica Biasi, Pietro Russo and the Lebanese duo david/nicholas are the designers of the latest proposals.
From the curved molten glass of the Bonfire table lamp by Studiopepe, to the formal wisdom of the Livre armchair by Federica Biasi, to the precious inlaid herringbone top of the Manto table by Pietro Russo. The leitmotiv is the dialogue of elements like brass, wood and textiles accompanied by glass, the material that gave life to the brand fifty years ago.
'Personally,' says Silvia Gallotti, CEO, 'I am convinced that Made in Italy craftsmanship plays a fundamental role in products made by companies that want to distinguish themselves on the international scene for exclusive and authentic creations. The priorities are not to lose our artisan skills and to hand down the tradition of Italian know-how. This is why I believe that dialogue between designers and brands plays a fundamental role in the manufacturing process'.
Founded in 1956 by Luigi Radice and Pierangelo Gallotti, Gallotti&Radice has evolved significantly in recent years, moving from the production of separate items to complete interior collections. 'Gallotti&Radice,' explains Silvia, 'has always pursued a style that could combine innovation with identity - seamlessly.'
It all began in 1955, when Pierangelo Gallotti and Luigi Radice founded an art space dedicated to glass decoration. This shared passion became a laboratory of ideas where tradition and innovation could mix to create a small and precious production of unique handmade pieces.
Gallotti&Radice was born in 1956. The project took its first steps in Brianza and then expanded throughout the world. Over the years, the brand's expertise has extended to the entire domestic landscape: furnishings, complements and lighting for living areas to the bedroom. Today the company includes the new generation, with Silviaand Massimo Gallotti and Marco and Pierangelo Radice at the helm. It was Silvia Gallotti, now CEO, who drove the recent evolution that allowed the company to move from glass complements to complete and total living design.
'The products that bear the Gallotti&Radice name,' continues Silvia, 'are distinguished by contrasts of materials and styles, the use of precious materials and constant experimentation with new handmade finishes. The Audrey, Bolle and Pandora collections are some of the brand’s most characteristic lines.'
Two precious variations have been added to the Bolle series: the Bolle Aria wall version and the Bolle Cielo suspension lamp with a six and nine sphere structure in transparent blown glass. In addition, Ruggy is a two-tone high pile carpet in soft synthetic fiber.
Other 2020 proposals include the Livre armchair by Federica Biasi, upholstered and designed with lightness and formal intelligence; and the Manto table by Pietro Russo, whose singular base works perfectly with the inlaid herringbone top.
Studiopepepe presents two products for its first collaboration with Gallotti&Radice: the Bonfire table lamp in curved molten glass and the Roundcut modular shelving system with a hand-burnished metal shelf.
