Our FuoriSalone 2019 – “Rebirth of Materials”
Every day, from April 8th to 14th, the lively streets and alleys of Milan will fill up with hundreds of events for the most important exhibition in the world of furniture and design – Salone and Fuorisalone – and Contrada Erasmo should certainly not be missed.
Design furnishings born from the creative recovery of waste materials will be the main theme of our exhibition. A project by Erasmo Figini, product and interior designer, in an unusual location, where design and good wine meet.
Two old friends, wine and wood, finally meet after a long journey that saw them meeting for the first time the day of the harvest, kept them together for years, and finally turned them into something new. From Erasmo’s idea of giving new life and purpose to old barriques destined to waste, combined with the company’s strong social commitment, Contrada Erasmo is born and it found in Signorvino the perfect partner.
At Signorvino Wine Shop, Contrada Erasmo will exhibit its creations – a collection of tables, accessories and lighting – as examples of the infinite possibilities of application of the proposed crafted and creative materials. Among them, we find the beautiful reclaimed oak from wine barrels previously used in winemaking processes: barrique strong, rich and fragrant wood made unique by the endless hues and nuances impressed on barrel staves by grape wines as they age in the barrels.
The products displayed offer an overview of the style, materials and elegance that characterizes the path undertaken by Contrada Erasmo. Among them, “Davide” dining table born from a painstaking artisanal process of transformation of old barrique staves into strips of different dimensions then reassembled by hand into geometric patterns; the elegant table lamp “Dafne” distinguished by a handcrafted irregular diamond-shape glass sculpture and, finally, the trapezoidal shape coffee table “Clara”, in barrique oak and handcrafted gesso and bronze.
Luca Pizzighella, Sales Director of Signorvino states: “For Signorvino, this is a new and strongly desired collaboration, and the fact that many of Contrada’s creations take shape from the reuse of barriques previously used in winemaking processes has made our partnership even more interesting”.
Contrada Erasmo and Signorvino are waiting for you, in an oasis of peace and taste, to offer you an excellent glass of wine and refresh you from the labors of the Fair and the Fuorisalone.
