Kristalia Armchair Decorated by the Tattoo Artist Emanuela Bello
Win this Kristalia chair in natural leather processed by Presot, producer of shoe soles for the most important Italian designers since 1933.
Bartoli Design has made full use of Presot's experience in both the high fashion and nautical sectors. Their know-how in using a tie-rod mechanism for keeping leather taut has been applied to the leather slings of the chair that would otherwise naturally give as the leather softens over time. This very timely project arrives when such themes as craftsmanship, Italian manufacturing, and ecological production are at the center of attention for those who create, produce and communicate design in Italy. Besides reflecting these trends, it tells a spontaneous, typically Italian story: that of a prized encounter between a company seeking out new business ideas, the talent of a designer, and the know-how of a producer. Bartoli Design even develops architectural projects and works in interior design and urban planning.
The famous tattoo artist Emanuela Bello tattooed the designs onto the chair during the Treviso Comic Book Festival.

Since 2003, the Veronesi foundation has been pursuing a single objective: promoting the progress of science, health resources and ethical growth—civilly and in society.
"Science must always work for and with the human being,” declared the founder, Umberto Veronesi, “this means respect of the person, research for solutions and strategies that can improve the quality of life, offering new hopes for the present and for the generations in the future”.
At the core of the foundation there is barrier-free and scientific research that invests in young talent from each country, working toward answers to new questions using innovative and high-profile research programs dedicated to the prevention and diagnosis of tumors, cardiovascular disease and neuroscience, and the discovery of cure strategies that are efficient and beneficial to the entire community.
Unique in its genesis, the foundation has pushed its own interests outside the walls of a laboratory, encouraging social involvement and education in science. The Veronesi Foundation is also active with its devotion to science so that the results from science become available to everybody. Particularly, the foundation spreads the principles of prevention and correct lifestyle to keep disease away, even the most serious diseases that we can avoid just by changing our behavior.
