When the wood becomes art: from Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena to Famous Glasses

Famous Glasses

“Famous Glasses” is the title of a series of 35 wooden tables, dedicated to famous spectacle frames. A tribute to celebs, real and imaginary. Unique pieces developed with the mosaic technique, hand painted and crafted using manual engraving and fretwork techniques. The series will be showcased at La Cascina di Balsamico Bonini until the end of February 2018.

CUT uses wood, the most primitive and vital material in the history of the world, to design and develop theme-based tables, revisiting modern archetypes of hyperconsumerism and the icons of mass communication, wedding them to forge something altogether different: playful, neat, conciliating and never irriverent.
Two different ways to add value to the wood: the Traditional BAlsamic Vinegar of Modena and CUT, together under the same roof!
