Draga Obradovic, Golia Console in Olive, IT, 2022

Featuring bold sculptural forms, this console showcases an unprecedented top, in which the concrete literally merges with the resin, emphasizing the contrast between the texture of the former and the transparency and glossiness of the latter. The base is made entirely of concrete. Its surface features a particular effect obtained through corrosion with sea salt, which brings the material to life. The substantial etched brass support provides a warm contrast to the cool concrete and resin.

Draga and Aurel, founded in 2007 in the town of Como, Italy, is a multi-disciplinary design studio specializing in unique works that blend colored resins, concrete, bronze, and brass. Inspired by Minimalism’s simplified volumes, retro-futuristic experimentation of Space Age design, and the eye-bending patterns of Optical Art, partners Draga Obradovic and Aurel Basedow have brilliantly synthesized these varied influences to build an all-new collection called “Transparency Matters’, entirely fabricated by hand in their Como atelier.

Interpreting the power of transparency to illuminate, delight, transform and distort, Draga and Aurel have perfected the art of resin, achieving high strength, jewel-toned, crystal-clear furniture, lighting, and accessories. “This collection is a symbol of our evolution as designers and artists. We approached the project holistically, mastering new processes, working with new materials and creating each piece by hand in our atelier. Designing this collection was an opportunity for us to express our joy and think outside the box following a decade of partnerships and collaborations,” explains Draga Obradovic.
