The Constantin collection designed for Colé Italian Design Label is named after the man who inspired it. Constantin Brancusi’s modern art guided the designer’s hand in the creation of candlesticks and book holders, containers and centrepieces in wood, marble, brass and bronze. Inspired by the artist’s ability to represent the essence of things in a highly abstract way, Agustina Bottoni decided to shape her candlesticks and book holders thinking of the columns and bases of his famous sculptures. The shapes of the new pieces are immediately familiar: the surface treatment makes them into tactile objects, which must be appreciated first with the eyes and then by means of a light touch of the hand.
