This inspiration gave rise to two unrivaled creations, including a multi-purpose box with an architectural silhouette and four color leads for an undisputed emotional touch.

Description

MARIO BOTTA

Mario Botta is a renowned international architect who has been awarded numerous prizes and is known as a pillar of the architectural world. His strong personality allows him to defend his powerful ideas, which include: “Architecture is an ethical field before being an aesthetic one.”

Mario Botta has reinvented the simplest and most evident forms – the square, circle, and rectangle. For him, simple forms are forms that reassure because they are pure and easy to grasp and understand.
He has a very specific concept of architecture, which he views from an anthropological perspective: for him, architecture has to act on memories.
