Opinion Ciatti draws inspiration from the history of Italy in new furniture, lighting and carpets. Meanwhile, existing ranges have been extended with the addition of new materials, finishes and range extensions.
Subtly luxurious, the new Degabello stool features hand forged metal decorations made from 24K gold or polished black nickel. The design was inspired by a specific moment in Italian history which gave designer Lapo Ciatti the impetus to transform a medieval-style stool into an elegant contemporary object.
The Batti.batti ceiling lamp by Stefan Krivokapic is inspired by a stage of the metal forging process. In the Medieval era, Tuscan blacksmiths used full iron rods that were first heated and then beaten to achieve the required three-dimensional shape.
The technique in Italian is called 'battuto'. The same technique is used today to make unique pieces characterised by minimal shapes and fine finishes, a perfect “fusion” between past and future.

The carpets invite a change in perspective, allowing you to softly step on surfaces that would otherwise be inaccessible.
