Spazio Pontaccio introduces CREDENZA
An exclusive collection of furniture in stained glass
designed by Patricia Urquiola and Federico Pepe
Spazio Pontaccio introduces “Credenza”. A capsule collection of furniture that merges the contemporary design of Patricia Urquiola with the graphic skills of Federico Pepe, Le Dictateur.
Its name carries the essence of the concept: “Credenza”, which in Italian means both a cupboard and one’s belief. It’s a series of furniture in stained glass that is inspired by the windows of holy sites as the ones created by Gerhard Richter for Cologne’s Cathedral.
Spazio Pontaccio invited Patricia Urquiola and Federico Pepe to recover the symbolic value of stained glass windows transforming it into contemporary pieces of furniture.
The meeting between an antique sacred inspiration and its reinterpretation in the form of design is as well reflected in the production process of the collection. “Credenza” - characterized by contemporary patterns, colours and materials – is produced in Italy by artisans skilled in the thousand-year old manual technique of stained glass, generally used for the architectures and the decorations of the churches.
Besides its functionality, the elements of the collection designed by Patricia Urquiola and Federico Pepe (cupboards, screens and low tables) gets in touch with the space also thanks to the light that passes through each element.
“Credenza” will be presented for the first time April 2016, on the occasion of Milan Design Week, at Spazio Pontaccio Showroom.
