Prototype, 2017

More often than not, design products and their names are entirely different entities, later defined and with some degree of randomness. For this project, on the contrary, the name Capomastro is a formal and functional synthesis of its design. The words is used to define a character whose life has been spent on working sites and, in particular, whose job entails the use of a trowel, tool that serves the purpose of spreading and smoothing mortar. Such tool is equipped with a powerful handle. The original wisdom expressed by this tool has been analyzed and reinterpreted: the very handle, despite keeping its functional nature, represents the only decorative element to an elegantly essential composition.
