Design Week 2024 – La Biblioteca di don Ferrante

Also for 2024, Haute Material will experience the Design Week, opening up to visitors of the Fuorisalone in the suggestive square of Torre Gorani and presenting Don Ferrante’s Library, a rich catalog of materials from which our works originate.

The Don Ferrante Library contained perhaps three hundred books: the most important – Manzoni ironically – for an intellectual of his era, the 17th century.
Our Library is – obviously – imaginary, but it contains real samples of tree essences in book form.
Don Ferrante, with his “words”, with his readings, imagined himself happy in his world (but we know how it ended): with these “woods”, chosen with care and passion, high quality and design. We build a better world.

Built in brushed and painted cedar; it can be disassembled and can travel.

Concept: Gerardo Monizza
