Any action which has no roots in contemplation is doomed from the outset to infertility.
It could be the synthesis of Lucio Doro and its extraordinary heritage of values made up of many things collected experience by experience, contact by contact: books, notes, materials, curious things, prints, ... with the instinct, always current and alive, to bring home what is beautiful and exemplary.
It begins in adolescence, when he undergoes the charm and attraction of a workshop, the path that led him to attend different art studios, dealing with both the painting of those crafts that are essential for building work art: carving, big fire enamel, lacquer, gilding, plaster are some of the arts that have found their way into the works.
His Atelier is full of knowledge, testimonies, experiences, feelings, techniques, culture of curiosity and of stimuli but it is also a pragmatic Atelier, always oriented from research and work as well as from pleasure.
Sebastian Herkner was an unexpected gift, received from Cologni Foundation for arts and crafts, thanks to the event "Doppia Firma", that Fondazione Cologni organized in collaboration with Living and Yoox.com
This knowledge has given off great curiosity with regard to the respective sensitivity and a synergy through the creative spirit of both.
The result is a mutual respect and a new creativity, which I find very elegant and the desire to continue in this fascinating art expression.
Between Lucio Doro and designer Giuseppe Manzoni has born with Prove d’Autore a dynamic meeting point, to give the interior market new languages in tune with contemporary expectations.
Lucio Doro challenge without nostalgia his decorative story, declining to future his extraordinary family trade, well-rooted in the past with unrivaled expertise, looking ahead and thinking of new living environments.
Prove d’Autore is both poetic freshness of the sign and value of the functions.
Each object is always a "test", not a copy: the end result of each piece is never taken for granted and there is always some surprise because the decorators works by hand and by passion.
