Unique objects that combine the beauty of nature with the artisan ability of enhancing its every detail, using new and ancient techniques. These are the collections created at the Petri workshop in San Casciano Val di Pesa, in the Florentine hillside. Here, in the heart of the Chianti area, where art, nature, history, and technique have always co-existed and blended together, Simone Petri has founded a company capable of creating veritable objects of wonder.
Over the years, the Petri company has expanded its selection of materials. In addition to silver, which was prevalent in its early collections and still maintains an important role, natural elements and unusual materials have been added: gemstones, horns, sea urchins, minerals, fossils, coral, madrepora, and precious woods. Combined with a precious pedestal they become the focal point of an entire room. In other cases, they are inserted into more complex and articulated processes, through the use of various types of metals, which lead to the creation of new and original furnishing accessories. Veritable “objects of wonder” that manage to strike and amaze, excite and arouse memories of far off places, seen or even imagined.
