The main star of our Company’s tale is horn, a natural material pleasing to the touch and to the eye, with a myriad of shades that bring to life limited collections of unique pieces where no two are alike, by nature. Horn shows its DNA only after an intricate production cycle requiring long lead times, deep dexterity and very specific skills that are treasured by expert master craftsmen.
After an accurate selection of the best parts and their exposure to fire, horn becomes malleable and ready to be smoothed in complete respect of its properties. With the complicity of few tools, artisans’ hands gradually turn horn into tiles to be skillfully matched together. Every masters’ thought and action is constantly geared towards excellence and meticulous attention to detail in order to ensure collections of unsurpassed quality.
Today, the same passion has been inherited by the new generation of the Guerra family, who blends artisan tradition with continuous research and transforms horn into unique pieces, ranging from furnishing to accessories.
