With an explicit reference to the furnishings of the Sixties and a name that evokes the essence of the entire line, the Canneto collection designed by Adriano Design for De Castelli, enter homes of furnishing enthusiasts and not only with two new elements: a sideboard and a console.
Both characterized by the same elegance and refined workmanship as the first release - the Barista bar cabinet - the two most recent references in the Canneto collection also tell of a balanced encounter between craftsmanship, mastery manufacturing and a wise use of technology functional to the design.
The sculptural volumes that describe the three pieces of the line designed by the Turin studio Adriano Design, on the other hand, are consolidated throughout the line: defined by a canneté of copper, brass and brushed steel rods, of different diameters, which create an irregular texture and give life to an intriguing play of light.
Specifically, the console is available in a suspended or floor-standing version, completed by a slightly lowered top, functional for support.
Davide and Gabriele Adriano of Adriano Design talk about the origin of the project in an interview.
How was the Canneto collection born?
The Canneto collection was born from the idea of giving new life to the 'bar cabinet from the 60s': splendid treasure chests which, once opened, transformed into bright and sparkling console for the preparation of drinks.
We wanted to update the concept of a piece of furniture that contains small and healthy vices, dedicated to our well-being, to taking a break, to the pleasure of taste and smell, a piece of furniture capable of transporting us elsewhere with its simple opening.
We have thus cultivated the idea of a dense reed thicket, what most in nature represents the 'I see, I can't see': copper rods of different diameters generate a chromatic movement that is always different and that invite you to look beyond them.
After Barista, the Canneto collection has expanded with the birth of a sideboard and a console and with the introduction of other materials, such as brass strong>and stainless steel.
What is the interpretative key of the Canneto style?
The geometry of the opening of the doors and the external finish characterize the collection in the same way, made with copper, brass or steel rods of different diameters and placed side by side to design the reed bed.
The special finishes of the individual rods, handcrafted by De Castelli craftsmen, create plays of light and reflections that make each piece of furniture in the collection unique.
Canneto: the three references
The Mobile Bar
Once opened, the compact volume reveals an interior entirely in stainless steel with a specific mirror finish, to multiply the colors of the spirits and the reflections of the glasses of bottles and glasses as in a kaleidoscope, recalling the atmosphere and the elegant interiors of clubs and cafes.
The cabinet opens like a book: the perfect 180° opening is made possible by the design solution that draws a "V" section and therefore allows the two symmetrical halves to fit together; movement is facilitated by small wheels integrated into the base.
The slightly lowered top becomes functional for support and service. Equipped to store bottles and glasses of different types and sizes.
The sculptural volume is defined by a canneté of brushed metal rods, of different diameters, which create an irregular texture and give rise to an intriguing play of light.
The piece of furniture develops lengthwise and has 2 L-shaped side doors which open to 90° thanks to the particular design solution; in the center two large 'basket' drawers each conceal another smaller one.
The upper metal top is in a slightly lowered position with respect to the doors and the perimeter of the piece of furniture and thus highlights the walnut frame canaletto, a precious material that used for all the interiors creates a proposal of great elegance and refinement.

The cabinet with double doors is equipped with shelves and internal dividers. The 2 L-shaped side doors open to 90° thanks to the particular design solution.
