LOS ANGELES, July 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Astar Collection contains pillows, a bench, stool and barstool each with a different quilted fractal design based on one of the five platonic solids. The collection is handmade at our factory in Los Angeles.
"Our intention was to create balance by making it all black and white. Cromatti is known for our wide range of color options giving customers a greater breadth for customization but with this collection is all about contrast and equilibrium," said VP of Design Dan Maddox.
"We love what we do at Cromatti. This collection is a true reflection of who we are as individuals," noted VP of Operations Alan Rauta.
A Platonic solid is a regular, convex polyhedron. Constructed of congruent regular polygonal faces with the same number of faces meeting at each vertex. Five solids meet those criteria, and each named after the number of faces. It was out of those five solids that inspired the designs, which are mathematically applied by skilled artisans. People who "Love what they do" carefully construct each piece by hand. Supporting the campaign's tagline "Made with Love", which features a blog series (giornalecromatti.com) highlighting the artistry of this process while inspiring other designers and artists.
"As part of our core values, we believe our principles will continue to attract the talent of like-minded individuals who do what they love," says Alan Rauta.
Items in the collection retail from $89 - $1,500 and the entire line are available for purchase, with free shipping at Cromatti.com.
Cromatti is a young company with fresh, new thinking - a small, independent business with the ability to flex up for larger jobs. We believe in giving back and creating a positive impact where we do business.
