Domenico Orefice designed his Charta Tables in 2019. The pair can be used together as a coffee table or separately as side tables. They are handmade in pressed cotton cellulose, inspired by the ancient process of artisanal paper production. Each part of the table is defined by a different color, in a chromatic progression from light to dark, using earth pigments and natural oxides. The tables measure 38 x 38 x 40 cm and 50 x 50 x 36 cm. These designs are open edition made to order.
Orefice is a Milan-based designer and art director. He founded his eponymous studio in 2010, focusing on branding, product design, and interiors. In 2018, he established the brand Man de Milan (Hands of Milan), creating furniture, objects, and textiles that explore the history and identity of the city—all made in collaboration with artisans from Milan and Lombardy. Orefice’s work frequently celebrates traditional processes, combining them with new technologies and materials to create dynamic contemporary objects.
