In 2013 in Codogno, a small city south of Milan, Marco, as an expert technician with more than 25 years of experience gained in jewelry technologies and high technological machinery just started his dream. The dream was to be free to use his know-how and creativity just for the pleasure to create decorative metal panels and wall globes, and artworks out of the box.
Marco created art metal decorations and being the only one to realize these artworks have started the first collaborations with luxury furniture producers, contract companies, and interior designers studios. So thanks to these companies that started to include these artistic metals and wall globes in their projects.
It was the first time that the maps could be reinterpreted in artworks. Real wall jewels not to wear, but dedicated to the environments we live in. Considering every part of the earth as an amazing jewel has sprung the idea to also give real preciousness and artistic value to every map.
Metal panels and modern material artworks are a blended exclusive mix of creativity, technologies, natural materials, extreme workmanship, engraved metals, and 24k gold.
Only this unique mix of many know-hows derived from mechanical precision engineering sectors and molds for jewels allows these artistic creations.Mr.Angelo (Marco's father ) and the team made up of 3 people join Marco in his artworks.
Two elements make it possible to create these artworks, the first is a strong passion for all kinds of art engraving of metals - by the chisel, EDM ( electric discharge machining), chemical, mechanical, etc. The second is the use of noble materials such as copper, bronze, steel, brass, 24k gold as well as genuine mother-of-pearl, stone, and wood.
The passion for jewelry works, extreme workmanships, and engraved metals are the basis of each work. Know-how, craft skills, precious materials, and technologies used in an unusual way, unique in the world.
Extremely technical and geometrical precision allows faithful materials reinterpretation of paper maps turning into real wall jewels. Countries, islands, different elements and details made with metals where each insert is in fact like a real jewel.
Each art panel means hard work, patience, creation of hundreds and hundreds of perfect metal inserts, that are engraved, cut, polished, enameled, and inlay one by one by hand. So metals and materials that make it into a refined new kind of artistic metal mosaic.
Harmonies and contrasts of metals and materials that convey emotions, elegance, light ,not only for yachts, offices, homes, or the Ho.Re.Ca sector but for any kind of interior. Artworks that always arouse strong interest, admiration, and refinement , giving the greatest prestige to any environment.
