The Altar is a piece of furniture that pays homage to the Béguines, a Christian lay religious order in Western Europe between the 13th and 16th centuries. Its design was inspired by altars and prayer kneelers from their meditative spaces. Each component of the Altar is hand-cut from metal and skilfully welded, producing a delicate assembly of thin strips which appear near invisible and give off an ethereal feel. coseincorso is a design studio established by Marzia Cerio and Marwann, focused on reviving poetics and cultural context in production processes.
