Danese Milano
Since its foundation in the fifties Danese Milano has been a company that gives value to space. It does so with a catalogue of disruptive objects. The spirit of the time and the centrality of the human being are reflected in the importance that the company assigns to the choice of authors it involves.
The quality of the materials it applies and the synthesis of forms achieved so far transcend seasonality. The creation of archetypes for the home and the office as well as the desire to design contemporary objects whose innovation is not diluted in the course of history is the furrow that Carlotta de Bevilacqua, unique administrator of Danese Milano since 1999, continues to trace, choosing to give back perspective without nostalgia to an historic company of the Italian design.
The story of Danese Milano is a narration of material culture, suggested functions, discreet pedagogies and practical beauty.

The Murano glass Cantaro vase is a reinterpretation of the impasto and bucchero pottery collection that will be showcased at the Nuovo Museo dell’Arte, Fondazione Luigi Rovati – Milan. The museum, owned by the Luigi Rovati Foundation is designed by Mario Cucinella Architects. The handles on the sides of the cup make its shape slender, emphasizing the two birds that seem to be taking a rest on top them. The blown glass technique makes every vase a unique piece.
