I have known and worked with Emanuele for a few years and I am very excited about his new creative adventure, Studio 140.
Emanuele is an experienced art conservator, a skilled artisan, a volcanic designer and a lovely person.
In the last twenty years, he has designed and made many beautiful tables, frames, chairs; what I am showing you today and what you can see on Studio 140 website is only a selection of what he has created so far.
Emanuele has a unique approach because he merges the expertise of an artisan, the subtlety of an restorer and the inventiveness of a designer.
The result is Studio 140, a collection of life-lasting, beautifully detailed pieces.
All pieces can be made in any size a part from the unique pieces.
Studio 140 is also working on a new furniture collection made with scagliola, a substance made of selenite, glue and natural pigments that resembles marble or semi-precious stones.
This technique was very popular during the Baroque and it allows to make very hard-wearing surfaces with a richness of colors not possible in natural marble.
Here is a selection of my favourite pieces!
