Antonio Pio Saracino – The Guardians of New York


Very few times I look at a piece of design and say “I wish i made that” This is one of those times. Antonio Pio Saracino studio created “the guardians” to celebrate the year of italian culture in New York city. Saracino designed a marble Michaelangelos David and a steel super hero to feature opposite each other in a square in New York.

The 2 pieces are enablers of some very key values of mine. A celebration of achievement and potential of humans. and a cross coordination of material display and techniques new and old.

the use of negative space in the pieces never make you feel like they are blocking out your world just inhabiting it in the same fluid way we do.
