A classic idea of design reduced to the essentials: pure geometries, great depths, but especially the work on transparency. Like aesthetics and taste in the confectioner’s art, form and functionality are bound together in the design of Colonna. Colonna creates a connection: a place where the confectioner’s know-how expresses itself and meets the desire of the taster. Free from loads, decorations and superstructures, Colonna creates symmetrical relationships and circular dynamics around itself wherever it is placed. Colonna transforms the everyday actions of serving into one single movement. With an innovative and patented mechanical system, the display surface glides out like an extension of the gestures of the confectioner, who can work and draw the displayed products while maintaining a relaxed posture.
