THE (PL.) …1. LAT.: INTER ALIA PIECES OF BOOTY, LOOTED WEAPONS.

2. (TRANSFERRED FROM) 1. ART: BUILDING MATERIAL OF BYGONE EPOCHS

– NEWLY INTERPRETED.

 

SPOLIA.’S PHILOSOPHY IS BASED ON THE UNDERSTANDING THAT TIME AND LIFE ENRICH THE QUALITY OF A GIVEN MATERIAL.

WE PRODUCE LIMITED EDITION FURNITURE PIECES AND INTERIOR OBJECTS IN WHICH THE HISTORY OF THE MATERIAL TAKES CENTER STAGE: WE TREASURE FINE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND WE VALUE THE PATINA AND THE STORIES THEY CARRY. SPOLIA. RE-APPROPRIATES VALUABLE GOODS AND RE-IMAGINES THEM IN A CONTEMPORARY SETTINGS.

IN THIS WAY SPOLIA. REVIVES THE AGELESS CREATIVE METHOD OF SALVAGING, OFTEN LITERALLY, BURIED ARCHITECTURAL TRADITIONS. THE RE-PURPOSED MATERIAL IS THEN ENTRUSTED TO A CAREFUL SELECTION OF TODAY’S EMERGING AND ESTABLISHED DESIGNERS, WHO ENDORSE IT WITH NEW PURPOSE AND VALUE. BY MATCHING A CONTEMPORARY DESIGNER WITH A PRE-EXISTING MATERIAL, EACH COLLECTION EMBODIES A UNIQUE CREATIVE SPIRIT AND MATERIAL QUALITY.

THE UNDERLYING CRITERIA IN MATCHING A GIVEN MATERIAL WITH A DESIGNER, IS TO EMBRACE THE CONTEXTUAL AND TECHNICAL CHALLENGES THAT ARISE IN CREATING SOMETHING COMPLETELY NEW.
