Ceccotti Collezioni: the sixth sense of design

What Ceccotti Collezioni designs with the mind and sees with the eyes, first goes through the heart. The furniture that its master craftsmen work involves the careful selection and the attentive work of solid wood, and calls for a tactile relationship with those who choose them as their furniture. Thus, the Tuscan company founded in 1956 has become one of the most prestigious in the field of interior design and luxury craftsmanship.

However, its most precious material is time. Not surprisingly, the two new 2022 collections are called Timeless Design and Masters Tribute. They showcase the philosophy of Ceccotti, firmly believing that furniture should be part of a historical memory, to recall the past in order to last into the future.

    They wanted to design the ultimate chair, one that had nothing more and nothing less. The founders of DRAW Studio have succeeded with Lisa, which is inspired by another piece that has made design history: Gio Ponti's Superleggera chair. The symmetrical solid wood sides, from which the arms emerge, confirm the rational architecture, the attention to detail, the study of proportions.

    Roberto Lazzeroni states that objects have a voice, the ability to speak. His creations have also a sensual appeal: they can be touched, brushed against, not just looked at. His Janine is a striking example, in all her femininity and elegance. "I imagine her like this, like a ballerina, thin and light." The solid wood backrest and the upholstered seat give her comfort and softness.

    The family is that of the Icosofà, designed by Roberto Lazzeroni for Ceccotti Collezioni in 2020. Today that same family grows with Icosofà Chaiselongue. Its designer emphasises its sculptural shape, but above all its sinuous, feminine lines that invite you to sit while promising comfort. A piece of furniture that is equally heavy and light: on one hand there is the objective heaviness of the supporting structure made of solid American walnut, while on the other hand there’s the floating lightness of the backrests.

    Icorondò again has Roberto Lazzeroni's signature. The lines are once again sinuous and soft, to the point of creating an ellipse perfect for furnishing both public spaces, such as hotel lobbies or receptions, as well as residential spaces. At the top it features a typical catchall tray carved from wood or Tuscan marble.

    Galimede Ceccotti Collezioni

    Half Galileo ("The human mind is finite for it cannot deal with the infinite"), half Archimedes ("Give me a place to stand and I will move the Earth"). Galimede by Giuseppe Casarosa echoes past centuries, especially of the old microscopes and measuring instruments, with their brass wheels and sliding rings.

    Galimede Ceccotti Collezioni

    In black, gold, rose gold or bronzed steel, it has two height-adjustable solid wood trays: one with a rectangular solid top, which moves in orthogonal motion with respect to the central axis; and the other with a round solid top with circular motion. It can be used in many ways: suitable next to an armchair, a sofa or a desk, as well as a support for tablets, PCs or books.

    Scrinium celebrates the collaboration between Franco Ceccotti and Giuseppe Casarosa, in the design of a movable container that can be used not only as a writing desk but also as a bar and vanity unit, with carefully designed interior that combines wood and leather. Exclusive, noble metal as well as precious wood: the careful attention to detail make it a sophisticated piece of furniture of the highest quality, recalling the furniture of the past, particularly of the eighteenth century secretaire.

    "Stellage" is a declaration of intent. The name indicates a specific type of financial contract, as well as being the name of the design collective composed of Gabetti & Isola, Raineri, that won the 1952 competition for the design and furnishing of the Turin Stock Exchange. A piece that has made design history - it has entered the permanent collection at the Moma in New York - and is being produced and is available to purchase for the first time after seventy years. Stellage 52 is its unprecedented re-proposal and is part of the Masters Tribute 2022 line with which Ceccotti Collezioni re-proposes timeless classics. The style remains unique and extremely recognisable, with new structural and decorative touches.

    Nòs, meaning walnut in the Milanese dialect, is how the desk originally designed for Bernini in 1957 was renamed. Here is another piece of the Masters Tribute 2022 by Ceccotti Collezioni, born from the collaboration with Gianfranco Frattini, who shares the brand's love and care for woodworking. Why a desk?

    Nòs Ceccotti Collezioni

    Because it is the place where memory is preserved, where knowledge is stored, and therefore perfectly reflects the designer's holistic vision, for which furniture should always be conceived and inserted in a historical continuity. Its essential lines echo the original hourglass shape of the base, available now in three versions: the standard version with a smooth worktop, as well as one with drawers, and another with two roll top closures, a recurrent element in Frattini’s design.

    With Obon we return, finally, to DRAW Studio, which was inspired by typical Japanese lanterns to design this generously sized pendant lamp. Obon is also the name of a Japanese holiday, meaning “Lantern Festival”. Two concentric cylinders, the inner one in white opal glass and the outer one in fine fabrics, diffuse a warm light. And warm are also the other materials of which the chandelier is made: the wooden rings that frame the cylinders and the burnished bronze rods that join them. The result is the creation of a symbolic item under which families and friends cultivate relationships and share time together.
