21st Century Castle Design
Castello di Potentino has launched a design line, collaborating with all our talented friends - some of whom have been volunteers - to develop a 21st Century Castle brand.
Castello di Potentino will be utilising local skills and local materials; sourcing tradition and redefining the role of the Castle in modern-day terms.
We create designs that are solid, well-crafted, intelligent and practical:
- designs heavily influenced by Tuscan sobriety, with strong reference to a wide array of aesthetic histories – Etruscan, Medieval, Oriental, Renaissance, '50s, '60s and '70s;
- designs incorporating the heritage of Italian classicism with a pinch of the surreal and humorous;
- designs strongly influenced by the interiors, the motifs, the spaces, and the dogs of Castello di Potentino;
- designs inspired by its surroundings - the vines, the olive groves, wood, stone, earth, water, wine, colour, season - its nature and its past re-thought and re-juggled for today’s needs and desires.
