Cristina Celestino is a sensitive furniture and objects designer, and will be presenting two projects in collaboration with two very different industrial companies at the Salone del Mobile 2016: Tonelli design is a company from the Marche region, specializes in hand-welded glass furniture, and Bottega Nove, a Venetian-based manufacturer of mosaics in ceramic and porcelain. She created a series of iridescent tiles with intricately designed feather motifs for Bottega Nove (for whom she is also the Artistic Director).

Opalina scrittoio Sat, made of welded crystal layers, Opalina Collection, Cristina Celestino, 2016.

For Tonelli she designed the Opalina collection, including a dressing table, writing desk, mirror, coat hanger, and stool, made of rounded opalescent glass. This material is widely used in design objects, this is a first for the furniture world; the thick plates, pained or frosted, have an unusual translucent and silky effect, making each of the pieces’ profiles almost “soft”.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
