Posa Project is an installation of four collectible falcon perches. Posa combines volumes and geometric forms adapted to precise technical requirements. This new interpretation of falcon perches comes directly from the original aesthetical criterions and combined with luxurious materials they become a precious object. The solid beech wooden ring is handmade from a factory in Italy that developed the components of the famous Thonet chair. All the metallic elements are rigorously and meticulously plated with pure gold, pink gold, shiny and mat silver in De Vecchi laboratories. The result is a sculptural and elegant object that flows with the ergonomic demands of the raptors. Two different types of support are proposed as an option according to the origin of the falcon (arboreal or desert environments). The wide support area and the stability of the marble base offer a secure stationing to the animal, while the inside structure of the circle has a structural function and doesn’t allow the bird to cross the lower part. The collectible falcon perch is a cultural hybrid, a decorative object with pure lines and noble materials, a reminiscence of medieval practices meeting contemporary Middle Eastern practices with the know-how of Italian craftsmanship.
