The green rolling hills of the famous Prosecco wine (Valdobbiadene, Treviso, Italy) are the background of Maison 203 brand, created in 2011 as a result of the encounter of Orlando Fernandez Flores, of Venezuelan origin and with a solid design experience in Foscarini, with Lucia De Conti, a cosmopolitan graphic designer and great fashion enthusiast. The synthesis of their multicultural backgrounds generates Maison 203: an unprecedented point of view on contemporary jewelery, conceptual and decorative at the same time, where thought, through technology, is transformed into concrete matter.
All of Orlando and Lucia’s jewels and fashion accessories are recognizable by their strong personality and strong aesthetic impact, inspired by suggestions from time to time geometric, natural, or linked to the languages of architecture and contemporary graphics. Voluminous and decorative shapes, or elegant and minimal shapes which, thanks to the realization through 3D printing, are extremely light and flexible, able to interact harmoniously with the body. The collections of the brand are the result of the continuous contamination of ideas between Orlando, Lucia and the designers called upon to collaborate: emerging studios, or established professionals in the panorama of Italian design, employed in very different design fields and for this reason able to donate to jewels and to the accessories of Maison 203 always new formulas of beauty and meanings.
Craftsmanship 3D printing Cross-pollination
Each accessory, made by 3D printing, involves a composite craftsmanship, which includes the manual sandblasting of each piece, subsequently dyed and hand painted, and finally finished and assembled, always by hand. In addition to the creations in sintered nylon, there are special brass editions obtained with the ancient lost wax technique and those made by superimposing traditional artisan materials, such as precious local leathers.
In 2019 the new Maison 203 space was born, immersed in the green hills of Cartizze in Valdobbiadene (Treviso – Italy). A space designed by the architect Vittorio Massimo that respects the local rural character by taking up the typology present on site of the single-pitched tool shed located on the short side of the buildings and open along the north-south axis. An area dedicated to offices, with a showroom corner for customer reception and direct sales.
