Giovanni Casellato, from architecture to craftmanship

Today we meet Giovanni Casellato, LAGO maker and author of Filodolce Collection (LAGO Objects), a series of objects made by him, shaping an iron wire that forms its core.

Giovanni Casellato

“The iron is a dirt and heavy material, difficult to work. This is what attracts me the most and it has become my challenge”.

Coming from a family that has been smiths for two generations, after graduating in Architecture Giovanni leaves the career go and became a craftman. In the video below he tells us his life choice and his passion for iron. Enjoy!

From 2nd to 5th October you can have a look to the collection and to other products by LAGO at MADE Expo, Hall 7, Booth C1 D10 “This is my Listone Giordano & partners”.
