Gumdesign for De Castelli: MastroPosted: April 2, 2012
De Castelli previews one of its new pieces, Mastro, which will launch during the Salone del Mobile fair in Milan April 17-22. The Mastro table uses simple forms and minimal materials to compose a compactly designed, easily stored, utilitarian work table. De Castelli will exhibit at Pav. 6 stand C29.
From De Castelli: The memory of the old worktables, used in craftsman workshops, becomes inspiration of a table for the home and the office. Mastro is made with an acid-etched iron sheet, folded to hold the two firwood trestles, allowing the fastening. So the visible slot of the trestle becomes the main feature of this table. The design involves taking off the trestles, spin them 90 degrees to scroll them inside the metal soul that contains them horizontally, in order to minimize the objet footprint if not in use, the storage, the packaging dimensions and the sustainability of the global logistics.
