The Uncollected Collection
Tommaso Sartori's lens proves its wise ability to capture the evocative spirit of The Uncollected Collection in a unique catalogue. Made of three different families, the one characterized by sinuous profiles is made of cast aluminium, the perfect material that refers to simplicity, without renouncing to lighting yet chromized colours. The photographer sheds light also on the “BANCO DA LAVORO 04”, showing his creativity in effectively portraying every single detail and dynamics of this work of art. This table moves, but it isn’t a workbench. But neither is it a simply table. It is both, and indeed it possesses an amphibious nature. It is born from a fascination with mechanics and to reveal what is normally hidden, but also from the audacity of thinking that an instrument for work can be dressed in glass and not fall from grace, as happens to certain fairy-tale characters. The Uncollected Collection passes through the lens of Tommaso Sartori to be portrayed with a broad range of emotions and expressions. Here shown the ethereal and simplified silhouettes of the steel rod and aluminium family, where thin tangled elements sometimes feature as table feet, others as chair legs. Creatures that need nothing more than an air of lightness to carry out the daily tasks. A family of chairs and tables for people who are happy with nothing without having to give up anything.
