Castones

ERICA ZANELLA
Milan, Italy

Merging art and design in striking contemporary sculptural items, Castones was founded in 2020 by architect and designer Erica Zanella. Capturing the concept of space, each piece is distinguished by an emptied silhouette whereby the void truly gives shape to the object, allowing the spirit of the maker and the imagination of the viewer to reveal the nature of the piece.

Castones are handcrafted solid gypsum monoliths reminiscent of stones: mixed only with water, they evoke natural, primitive shapes that capture the rock’s plasticity.
