XILO By DE CASTELLI
Rectangular brass coffee table
Inspired by the refined, sinuous aesthetics of Art Nouveau, the XILO coffee table is a veritable sculpture in metal that exalts the hand-crafted techniques and manufacturing excellence of the company. Three sheets of thick brass, rounded at the ends and of different lengths, have been folded and abutted irregularly to create rhythmic movement. Each element features a distinct weave of imprints that dissolve in delicately fading marks, in contrast to the polished brass surface. The impressions on the surface of Xilo are the memory of manual manufacturing methods, evidence of the advanced artisanal capacity of De Castelli, the fruit of tireless research into the material.
