METELLA | Highboard
A collection of metal containers, whose forms recall the charm of the well-acclaimed mid-20th century salons and Ancient Roman architecture decorated with mouldings. METELLA, designed for Da a by the designers Dario De Meo and Luca De Bona, is born from the contrast between the compactness of the iron casing, which responds to functional needs, and the prismatic curves of the extremities.
The collection is composed of three furnishing accessories that differ in shape and size, but yet share the common detail of the segmented curvatures, from the extension of which the support structure emerges. This peculiar feature, as well as the chromatic reliefs caused by the mechanical characteristics of the bending process, demonstrates and concretizes the mission of Da a, characterized by the encounter between the production of heavy-duty machinery and design. The end result is a collection with an intense visual effect and vintage allure, with a play of chiaroscuro that constantly alters the overall perception.
