presents for the first time at Made Expo.

model that could be remembered as the “handle”, a work that would embody
perfectly at the same time the history and the future ambitions of the company. A

the coming decades... ».

Doriana Fukas «is this handle, that is dynamic, soft and sensual like “Carmen”, made
as a small sculpture».
