Domenico Orefice's Ringhiera project (2018) was inspired by medieval Lombard houses, known as Case di Ringhiera, which feature interior courtyards with a specific style of iron railing. The doors of Orefice's Ringhiera Cabinet feature similar stylized railing, which acts as a handle for the cabinet as well as a shelf for objects. Handmade in solid oak and laser-cut iron, this design is an 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.
