Designed by Michelle De Lucchi, Dom plate is a meticulously crafted sculpture resembling a star map guiding us home. The profound appeal of Dom plates is to be found in brilliantly designed geometry, meticulously executed details–which bear witness to enduring value of fine craftsmanship, and the warmth and tactility of solid wood. For De Lucchi “the real topic of the time is to investigate—and to better understand in a theoretical way—the difference between temporality and eternity, what has to be temporary and what has to be permanent.” In this way, Dom (meaning “Home” in Bosnian) is the eternal origin and the destination. The hand-carved textures engraved into the wood by Zanat’s master craftsman catch the light beautifully in a way that emphasizes the tactility and geometry of these multi-polygonal objects. With Dom, Michelle De Lucchi has once again revealed to us both his genius and the inseparable connection between art and craft, the past and the future.
“To know where we’re going, we need to know where we come from.”
