Le Due Facce della Luna

Design Afra & Tobia Scarpa

Twin spirits at table

Designed to juxtapose two materials with different spirits, like silver and steel, the Le Due Facce della Luna flatware by Afra and Tobia Scarpa brings to the table a story of Italian manufacturing excellence.

PRODUCTION YEAR

1979

An evocative name and the idea of blending elements with different and seemingly incompatible essences into a single design sums up the Le Due Facce della Luna luxury flatware service by Afra and Tobia Scarpa. The result is a perfectly balanced blend of beauty and function that plays on the contrast between 925 Sterling silver, used for the handles, and the stainless-steel bowls, blades and tines. Designed in 1979 for the San Lorenzo Atelier in Milan, a masterpiece of creativity rediscovered and faithfully re-issued by Cassina. The cylindrical silver handles enhance the sensual luxury of the silver, while the blades of the razor-sharp knives and the flawlessly forged and minted forks and spoons deliver exquisite functionality.

Originally designed for the San Lorenzo Atelier in Milan in 1979, the collection that Cassina rediscovers and re-edits, in partnership with the Milanese silversmith, focuses on the luxury and solidity of 925 Sterling silver for the handles and stainless steel for the bowls, tines and blades, for a quintessential aesthetic, sensory and dining experience that is a play on contrasts.

The cylindrical silver handles enhance the luxury of the silver and its pleasant tactile sensations; the blades of the knives are razor sharp and the forks and spoons are flawlessly forged and minted.
