Acrobat represents a collection so to speak suspended. All articles are made according to the idea of balance and suspension. The idea of suspension gives these objects an aura of lightness and grace. Acrobat is the collection that expresses the movement of the bodies, remaining still, is the representation in the crystal of the power in action, and the cohesion between the parts, which leads to the realization of harmonious objects.
Balancing figure, almost suspended, on ideally rotating spheres, like a tightrope walker who delights us with his art. The airborne inspired lightness, matter takes us back to its real value: the contrast enhances both.
