Material wealth: Riflessi adds metalwork to the rich Italian design history | News | Architonic

The investments Fammiano talks about are financial but also creative. Sure, when it comes to local materials Italy seems to have it easy; it is the site of some of the world’s most sought-after marbles and leather-crafting skills, robust metallurgy and some of the finest fabrics, but there is still a need to expand the economical and ecological material offerings from the local territory. At the centre of Riflessi’s new collection, to be launched during Milan Design Week at its PIazza Velasca showroom, are marbles frequently used in the design of bathrooms and kitchens, but here to be used to top tables and sideboards; among them are polished Patagonia marble, Capraia marble, Verde Alpi and Verde Borgogna marble and Rosso Levanto. But also a new material will be introduced to the collection – an intriguing reflective tinted metal, crafted into frames for the Diamond mirror collection and bases for tables.
