SAN LORENZO

SAN LORENZO
San Lorenzo was born in Milan in 1970 with the express purpose of renewing the expressive language of Silver, according to the Design principles. The history of manufacturing silver objects has been renewed by San Lorenzo which integrates the traditional skills of the silversmith with technology borrowed from applications outside its world and introduces an unusual way of looking at silver: that of the architects-designers who are asked to create silver things, giving preference to the nature of the material but recalling formal conventions. San Lorenzo is a pioneer in hunches and the ways in which these are revealed: precise, structural, design-oriented decisions. The dual concept silver-design is obvious, demonstrating the silver excellence beyond its already known areas until the cooking utensils. A corporate culture based on design. The combination of technique, form, and function, the series of logical steps with which form is determined, the rejection of stylistic clichés, research, knowledge of tradition, the careful preparation of prototypes, designs which will never be realized: these are all different aspects of the great adventure which allows the creation of objects fit to represent our age. San Lorenzo is a pioneer in hunches and the ways in which these are revealed: precise, structural, design-oriented decisions.     In fruitful collaboration with the manufacturer, the designer, on the basis of his aesthetic ideals, is both the interpreter of the “sign of the times” and the protagonist of this change; he weighs up the problems and suggests possible solutions according to the function of the public demand, then he conditions the maker and is, in his turn, conditioned, in a constructively dialectical relationship. Since the early nineties, San Lorenzo is the only silversmith in the world to produce objects for practical use in pure silver (999/°°°). A wide range of San Lorenzo products is permanently part of collections in the most important European and American museums
