Inspired by the Renaissance myth of the Philosopher’s Stone, vainly sought after by alchemists and scholars in past centuries, “ALKEMY” takes the tools of the alchemist’s trade and transforms them into decorative sculptures.

The two oversized stills, handmade of borosilicate glass, are mirrored and oxidised through the ancient technique of silvering. The lacquered wooden top, oval in shape and lunar in colour, echoes the symbol of the star; itself a metaphor for human intelligence in search of the absolute.

The alchemist’s quest for knowledge is expressed in physical form through this unique sculptural work.

About the designer

Born in Venice in 1972. He graduated in Industrial Design at the Milan Polytechnic. After an experience in the field of goldsmith design, he arrives in Philippe Starck\'s studio. In Paris he is fascinated by design capable of expressing traditional craftsmanship in a contemporary key. Back in Italy he pursues these expressions by starting to collaborate with companies in which manual skill is a distinguishing element of production. The son of antique dealers specialised in Venetian glass art, De Carlo re-elaborates the different craft traditions with which he came into contact, through his personal creative universe. A mix of high culture and pop culture that offers a playful, at times disturbing, vision of the contemporary world.
