Steel Sculpture "Crato" with Concrete Base - Abstract Poetry with Antique Flair
An abstract geometric composition consisting of a central large semicircle and several smaller doubles of the same, grouped in a loose group, playfully light looking around the centre: This is how our sculpture "Crato", available in two sizes and several finishes for the concrete base and the steel finish, presents itself.
Its silhouette is indeed somewhat reminiscent of a "crater", the ancient drinking vessel that has been immortalised in countless depictions and proven by findings to symbolise man's millennia-old need for conviviality and being together with others. The raw steel with the visible imprints of the working tools underlines the archaic character of the sculpture. Do you prefer something a little more "refined"? On request, we can provide "Crato" with a matt gold-coloured metallic lacquer ex works, which gives the steel construction the appearance of solid bronze or even goldsmith's work.
When placed in a room, "Crato" unfolds its full range of possibilities, either individually or in pairs. The simple, clear and abstract form offers a perfect projection surface, which, in front of the observer's eye and under the influence of changing light conditions, allows ever new interpretations to emerge. Dancing semicircles, a crescent moon surrounded by clouds, boats floating on the water: whatever you see when you look at the sculpture - it is there!
We produce "Crato" for you exclusively by hand in our CO33 workshop. The concrete base, optionally available in dark anthracite or in the classic light concrete grey, is made of exactly the same high-quality concrete as our design furniture and was intentionally left by us with its original, rough "earthy" structure to form a charming contrast to the smooth, cool surface of the steel sculpture.

** Many of our products are made of natural materials and / or handcrafted. They are always "unique pieces" in terms of quality. With this type of production, colour differences and small pore openings - even compared to the images in the shop or catalogue - are part of the usual nature of the material. Shading can also occur with concrete products. These can be caused, among other things, by influences such as temperature differences, air humidity and concrete-technological after-treatments or by impregnation. Such material properties are part of the usual or agreed properties of the products and do not constitute defects. **
