This Cross - very, very simple, although bicoloured - should not be understood as an invitation to religious commitment, but rather is much more modestly intended as a symbol of peace. Designed by Mario Trimarchi, Croce (Cross) is an attempt to impart a contemporary look to an object that seems to have almost vanished from our homes. Croce is an iconic symbol and immediately recognisable, proposed here in a state of dynamic tension thanks to being inclined with respect to the wall and to the presence of its black shadow.
cross in 18/10 stainless steel mat. PVD coated inside.

Mario Trimarchi, born in Sicily, has lived and worked in Milan since 1983. An architect of the “freehand” generation, he has always moved freely within the visual universe and considers drawing, photography, design and image as equal components with the same theoretical approach. Between 1994 and 1998 Trimarchi was Director of Advanced Design at the Domus Academy and from 1989 to 2000 was part of the Olivetti Design Studio, where he worked with Michele De Lucchi. In 1999 he founded his own Corporate Identity Care studio, FRAGILE. With FRAGILE he designs systems of identity, coordinated image and visual alphabets through which diverse individualities can be expressed. He has designed many trademarks, most notably for Poste Italiane, the graphics for numerous large exhibitions, communications systems for Italian design companies and, finally, many displays and interiors. Never relinquishing his passion for drawing, architecture or design, he is currently working on the theme of unstable geometries, which he utilises within the context of our relationships with everyday objects in an attempt to change, however slightly, our habitual patterns of living.
