Candy Collection reinvents the steel reinforcement bars normally used for concrete structures. Thanks to an industrial coating process, the common and usually unattractive rusty steel bars are given a new and seducing identity. The Candy shelves explore beauty and simplicity of ready-available construction materials to make furniture. A commonly known bar, by means of a simple design and an industrial intervention, becomes a beautiful and classic piece of furniture. Surprisingly, the purely functional texture of the bar becomes a decorative element once painted. The Candy shelves clearly refer to 1960’s furniture, through the use of a structure holding boards of varying and contrasted colours and finishes as well as perforated metal tray elements and accessories.
