OFFICINE 904

In an eclectic Italian factory in the Tuscan countryside, a dialogue between art, fashion, design, and architecture gives rise to new ideas, projects, and products.

Created in 2010 by visionaries Paolo Porcu Rodriguez and Silvia Pavanello, OFFICINE904’s uniquely Italian style laboratory joins incisive concepts with highly refined textures. Following the idea of “less is more” and crafted with minimal lines and unique shapes, each timeless OFFICINE904 creation will become an icon for future generations.

Artist Visit: Antonio Massarutto
 
 

 

HOMETOWN: Tuscany, Italy

 

A sculptor and designer based in Tuscany, Antonio Massarutto’s creative endeavors encompass two parallel artistic activities—sculpture and design.

 

Having established his studio in Cortona—one of 12 Etruscan federated states—he remains inspired by its ancient walls and tombs and finely crafted objects of bronze and terra cotta. The sculptural art of shaping and the design-influenced theory of concept reproduction results in a marriage of form and idea found throughout his work.

When creating with materials such as bronze, stone and synthetic fibers, he develops a new visual vocabulary and a contemporary design language that expresses his generations’ aesthetic needs and aspirations— simplicity, boldness, and a respect for Italian visual and intellectual heritage.

 

A graduate of the Art Institute at Cordenons and the Academy of Applied Arts in Milan, Massarutto’s Etruscan-inspired line of jewelry is closer to works of art than they are to decorative artifacts

BASTARDO BA

Founded in 2013 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Bastardo is an accessory brand characterized by clean, minimalist shapes and noble materials such as cotton, leather and fur.

Inspired by the city where it is created, Bastardo evolved from its designer Marcelo Yarussi’s passion for aesthetic silhouettes and modern details that create a new design language. As Yarussi seeks inspiration wherever he goes, he travels with a backpack of unconventional materials, allowing each to dictate the product that will emerge.

Expanding into a clothing collection called ENSAYO that launched in 2014, Bastardo is a brand that will appeal to the honest consumer who looks for pieces with a focus on quality and design.
