Concept

Elegant and intentionally rising above ideas of fashion, H_O is a collection of refined furniture of exclusive taste which Claudio Silvestrin designed in response to the need for a prestigious and tastefully luxurious Home Office. Centred around the natural beauty of materials from the oldest traditions of craftsmanship, such as leather, porphyry and wood, and a design that is attentive to the harmonious proportions of all the parts, the H_O collection appeals to the renewed tendency to care for and take pleasure in the uniqueness of exclusive furniture.

Developed as several elements that may be placed alongside each other, the design is characterised by the natural porphyry columns of the tables and desks that respond to the warm tones of the wood and hand-crafted leather to produce a “ton sur ton” chessboard effect. It is an unusual combination for a prestigious collection, designed to last over time.

The collection consists of a desk with drawers, available in two different sizes; a pc table; a console table with a thick top; a cupboard; and three tables of different sizes, two circular and one oval, to meet the different needs of social encounters and work. The bookcase, which is modular, is based on a combination of three base elements – drawer, column and shelf – that can be used in different configurations.

The surfaces of the tables, desks, cabinet, console table and bookcase are in dove grey or coffee-coloured leather. The supporting columns of the desks and tables are in Valcamonica Porphyry, in chestnut-purple, or in White Porphyry, with white-beige tints. The wood of the shelves and frames come in ash-tinted oak for the light-coloured leather or stone combinations, or in Louro Preto for the darker versions in the collection. The entire collection is upholstered in Tortorà or Caffè-colours hide. In the ‘Square’ versions, the basic upholstery is finished with a 16x16 cm square ‘tone-on-tone’ design.
