Segnomaterico, Turin

Fausto Cutrera, the creator of Turin’s “Segnomaterico”, hunts for abandoned furniture and furnishings; he remakes, assembles, and decorates them with refined taste, in order to “redesign the environment” in which these objects will come back to life.

Cutrera – set designer, architect, restorer… in one word, artist – works with professionals, upholsterers, technicians and decorators to reinvent public and private spaces with his unique creations.

When skill and imagination come together so successfully, you can certainly call it art.
