“Armadillo” is manufactured locally using recovered material and traditional tecniques. Encased in Glass, “Armadillo” evokes a “Cabinet de Curiositès”. The recycled polished steel and recovered black rubber used in the framing along with up-cycled wheels and steel mesh of the accordion mechanism suggest a modern interpretation of biomimicry. True to the designer’s work, sustainability is brought about in a surprising and unconverntional way.
Enrico Marone Cinzano has made a career of pushing boundaries and questioning how design can affect society. Following a successful career as Co-Creative Director of the critically acclaimed and award-winning ready-to-wear line, Project Alabama, Enrico embarked on his collection of ethical furniture in 2011. Inspired by nature and its inherent balance, he sought out to fully integrate sustainability and artful design to create structural and sculptural products. His body of work blends art and function with locally sourced salvaged materials that undergo rigorous standards of construction and craftsmanship.View designer’s page
