“METEORITE 2016-001” was born in 2016 from an idea of Giorgio Pozzi. He wanted to transform a researched sculpture in a common object, to create a new experience, an expression of Italian design and its craftsmanship. “METEORITE” is the fusion of the “Fusion Wow | Original” quartzite top with the sculpture, an internal structure and the steel oval base.
METEORITE represents the research of an emotion, a narration of shapes and materials that combines the complexity of the “quartzite” with the strictness of steel. The Fusion Wow original quartzite of Antolini appears as a light material, almost without weight suspended over a steel meteor.
This multicolour meteor quartzite is able to amplify the spaces. Its warm colour spread out with fluid lines creating shades and shadows, like on an artist’s palette. The sculptural approach of Matteo Berra seems to be moved towards a paradox, researching the impossible. With its unique technique the artist exhibits the hidden but overflowing sensuality, with docile shapes that are difficult to extract from the cold steel.
