A central instrument in the ritual of dressing, valet stands of the past err on the side of function. Regarded as items to be effectively hidden rather than openly celebrated. With the Ekero design, Tollgard & Castellani sought a departure from tradition, tipping the design scales into balance. A functional sculpture, this contemporary piece invites audiences to engage. A cylindrical marble base and elegant pewter frame offer gravity and grace. Crowned with CNC machined walnut components, details like a non-slip trouser insert and leather coin pad complete this marriage of design and function.
