THE TUBE IS A SIMPLE ELEMENT, BUT ONE OF GREAT VERSATILITY. TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION THE TUBE’S MANY USES, GUGLIELMO POLETTI’S MOST RECENT PURSUIT IS TO PLAY AROUND AND ALTER ITS FORMS UNEXPECTEDLY, TO CREATE A NEW FUNCTIONALITY.

SINCE HIS RECENT "THESIS" PROJECT (2016) AT EINDHOVEN'S DESIGN ACADEMY, THE DESIGNER HAS SHOWN AN ALMOST OBSESSIVE FASCINATION WITH THE IDEAS OF BALANCE AND TENSION. IN A PREVIOUS COLLECTION PRESENTED BY SEEDS, HIS GLASS AND METAL ACROBATICS GAVE SHAPE TO THE PRECARIOUS BALANCE OF THESE MATERIALS BY STABILIZING THEM INTO FUNCTIONING AS A BENCH AND A TABLE: HIS NEW WORK FOR OPERÆ INSISTS UPON THIS THEME WITH THE SAME EFFECTIVENESS.

FOR THE PHM | PIEMONTE HANDMADE PROJECT, THE DESIGNER HAS COLLABORATED WITH THE METAL MASTERS OF THE HISTORIC COMPANY, BERRONE DI VOLVERA, TO CREATE AN UNPRECEDENTED OBJECT THAT REVOLUTIONIZES A STEEL TUBE’S BEHAVIOUR THROUGH A SIMPLE OFFSET OF ITS OWN SECTIONS.
