Long Bench inspired by Brazilian modernism, characterised by essential geometric lines and brutalist volumes. The parallelepiped shape is obtained by the juxtaposition of continuous walnut wood faces, with a natural ‘open spot’ pattern. The bench is available in a standard length of 180 cm (2/3 seats), and is manufactured in Italy by expert craftsmen. Collezione Caleido is the self-produced furniture and object brand of Caleido: the all-round creative project of Manuel Barbieri and Marco Magalini, born to express their creative vision and curated by their creative consultancy agency MM Company.
Collezione Caleido was born with the desire to tell the Made in Italy. We selected some artisans throughout the Italian territory who make manufacturing and cultural excellence their strength, and asked them to produce Collezione Caleido’s objects.
Casa Caleido is their manifesto-house and an open space for convivial symposiums, meetings, and events to foster dialogue around the culture of design and creativity, convey its high values, and enhance personal and professional connections.
Renovating a home in an Art Nouveau building, tying the original patina to influences that migrate from Brazilian brutalism to Moroccan aesthetics is not an everyday occurrence. We are in Verona, at Casa Caleido, a haven of love but also a place of hospitality for Manuel Barbieri and Marco Magalini, founders of MM Company, a creative consulting and communication agency based in Milan.
