16-18 Weeks Lead-Time
Architect and passionate about research, Luca Erba also is a product designer with a strong commitment to craftsmanship, especially when related to his home area, Lombardy, in Italy. There, he drew his inspiration from the Variegato Lombardosecular tradition, a tile made of mixed clay, to design “Terra”. This 16th century technic is based on blending and joining two different types of clay. During the firing, each of them unveils very subtle veins and a beautiful interlacing of colors : reds, tangerine, pale yellow. Luca Erba here revisits this tradition with a small piece of furniture which seems to be cut in the mass. A handmade, sculpted block, which makes each piece unique.
