Continuous experimentation and research into innovation
It is a long-standing collaboration that dates back to the early 2000s, when architect Fabio Rotella and Stivens Benetti, owner of BenettiHOME, both with a common innate curiosity for research and the creation of new concepts, experimented in the field of design and the infinite and creative applications of MOSS. From the experimentation on stone processing projects, the Stone Philosophy collection was born, created by Fabio Rotella by milling, coloring and engraving the stone material to insert the Moss lichen from BenettiHOME.
Continuous experimentation and research into innovation led Studio Rotella to work on new technologies that refer to Crypto Art in the field of design and contemporary art, and Benetti HOME to present on the market increasingly versatile, aesthetically impactful, and technically performing design products.
In 2022, during Milan Design Week, KONNY was launched by Studio Rotella, a sculpture project featuring an iconic bunny that transforms from a material point of view, made in various colors and materials, and is present in numbered series in Virtual Art Galleries of the metaverse as NFT (Non-Fungible Tokens).
The collaboration with Benetti HOME has generated a new creation that can be considered an installation, a single painting, or a composable and modular surface, a work made in 99 numbered and certified pieces that make it original and very special.
