Enrico Marone Cinzano continue to explore the connection between Nature, sustainability and technology through his new project Stealth. The process begun by creating a shape that could be replicated in different versions by means of making products which exist in different time periods. The first is a small coffee table crafted by hand entirely in locally recovered wood, utilizing age old Piemontes techniques in terms of joinery, without the use of anything that could be deemed toxic to the environment. Interestingly, this table could have been made 500 years ago, as everything about it is local to the Torino area and natural. Then he expanded the concept with a larger version of the same shape, by making a coffee table in recycled aluminum that is treated to withstand scratches and topped with a marble called Zebrino, carved in Tuscany and coming from a batch of leftover materials. This latter product is very contemporary, both in terms of design but also in terms of bearing in mind the production of something which is sustainable in its processes. This completes his first presentation on the Project Stealth: next he will present a for a futuristic interpretation made exclusively for Rossana Orlandi, to be presented in the Fall 2017, which will include the latest technologies to show the proper evolvement that all products should have.
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
