Italian Design: “The first design of mine produced with Ugo for Casati was my H1 table in mirror-polished bronze. It was launched at Design Miami in 2007 along with works by Branzi, Mangiarotti, and Salocchi. Essentially Ugo was the client, and it’s amazing how strikingly Italian the table ended up looking. A lot of the work he and I have done together has an Italian vibe, but it’s most clear with the H1; I guess it’s inevitable when you put two Italians in the process.”
