An artistic mashrabiya


For villa A project we had needed to create a filter between two areas having at same time an important role, a kind of masterpiece located into the man’s majlis. So we have started to use ancient arabic patterns used for the mashrabiya and by the time the idea of creating a kind of mashrabiya having the value of a sculpture was always stronger. We cooperated with an artisan laboratory (la fucina di efesto) which works with metal and after a long development process we have defined this sculpture as an evolution of the classic hexagon associated with a multiple and submultiples as a sort of artistic mashrabiya.
