Very fine lacework indeed
Now this is pretty. Architect Italo Rota clad fashion designer Roberto Cavalli’s home with metallic “lace” — wrapping three sides in laser-cut stainless steel sprayed with a frosted copper finish. Produced in Cantù by Marzorati Ronchetti , the panels open electronically, so sunlight can be regulated from inside the house. It reminds me of the exquisitely intricate geometric patterns found in Middle Eastern and Spanish design. Sadly, I'm not likely to repeat this at home (although I do love homes overrun with Ivy, which produces sorta, kinda but not really the same effect) But I did see some lovely wrought-metal doors last year at Artefacts in St. Jacob’s that I thought would make a beautiful room divider or garden trellis.
