Frank & Frank, always fascinated by the maps of ancient explorers and by those present in the houses in some 17th century paintings, this project has an "ancient" sensibility but with a modern slant, destined to the sensibility of our time: for us, cartography is not a an “aseptic” element but it represents the culture and beauty that each place expresses.
Let's discover the ancient story of this city thanks the square motif of its plant, legacy of antique Roman history (and first capital of unified Italy in 1861).
A tribute to the city where the Frank&Frank project was born: between perpendicular streets and baroque buildings it is proudly rediscovering its beauty after the dark industrial period.
By the use of magnets, the maps seem suspended above any type of material, thanks to a “Easy-hang” magnet system positioned on the back.
The maps seem suspended on any surface,a natural and invisible magnetic force, able to transmit energy to another natural element.
This map is unique and unrepeatable, is about telling the emotion of the vision of the world with a powerful reflection on the beauty of cartography. The map is a writing territory full of pathos and surprises.
City map enter into relation with the leather, is a reduction process of the map from the image to an almost abstract structure, an artistic way of interpretating a certain place, made up of essential lines and balances.
The leather used is unique and chosen to create this city, it has a unique guarantee and code.
Vegetable tanned leather matures and trasforms with the passing of time. It is a rare material that embodies the signs of time as an expression of naturalness.
It is called "vegetagle tanning" for the use of vegetable tannins, obtained from the trunk and bark of trees. The extraction of these natural substances takes place in a way that does not damage the wood heritage because it is waste from wood working.
Vegetable tanned leather is biodegradable and hypoallergenic, free of chrome, metals and synthetic chemicals.
Another typical feature of vegetable tanned leather is the slight difference in color that always are between skin and skin, due to the presence of natural oils contained in them.
A vegetable tanned leather is so natural a product that it can be appreciated and recognized for its small signs, viens, for its scent and its its shades of color. All these features represent the authentic and tangible proof of a high quality product, which acquires value over time.
