Aldo Tura Goatskin Ice Bucket

I love the coloration of this fantastic goatskin Ice Bucket by Aldo Tura.

Aldo Tura started designing and manufacturing his furniture in the 1930s. His work is signified by the combination of free, uninhibited forms, exeptional fancy and great ironi. His work is also an example of highest craftsmanship, often produced in a restricted number, sometimes limited to a prototype.

In the 50’s, Tura discovered the suggestive charm of hand painted sitting rooms furniture with architectural views or Venetian landscapes. He also reached particular aesthetic results thanks to deliberately enlarged odd forms such as a pipe or a bar cabinet seen as an enormous cup, covered with the most unthought of parchment.

Due to his outstanding skill as a craftsman and artist, he experimented with a wide range of unusual materials including egg shell, parchment, leather and wood veneering. Tura’s ambition was to create aesthetic pieces of furniture which had natural and unrestrained shapes.

Tura’s works are coveted by designers and his pieces are  true collectors items. I highly recommend every home should at least have one chic piece by Aldo Tura!
