Graffio is a project of a piece of furniture and finishing designed by Paolo Benevelli for
De Castelli.




Scratches, engravings, wiry signs mark metal surfaces to tell about old stories.
Scratching not only defines the use of an object, but it becomes a way of materially
fixing the metaphors of life. The scratches and marks are transformed into a quality
and a feature of the metal surface. Imperfections become memories, enhancing
the pure essence of material. Left forever on cabinet doors, the preview of a story
that has not yet been shared.
