  • Catalogue Essay

    The life-sized centerpiece of his ‘Terra Terra’ collection, ‘L’Albero’ (The Tree), is a masterwork of Milanese artist, Andrea Salvetti, comprised of more than 10,000 cast aluminum leaves. Each leaf welded by Salvetti, the tree gives shade on a terrace, poolside, or brings ‘nature’ indoors. Strongly influenced by the early handmade metal works of Ron Arad and by the ‘artisan’ approach adapted by conceptual artists/designers such as Gaetano Pesce, Salvetti applied his own lyrical approach to design to a particularly difficult technique of lost wax casting in aluminum. This soon became his hallmark and marked the beginning of a long collaboration with the great Milanese design gallery, Dilmos, for whom Salvetti created his ‘Sottobosco’, ‘Ortofruta’, and ‘Terra Terra’ collections, all shown at Moss.
