Cà d'oro Continuo table lamp: the purity of the glass and the emotion of Venetian wooden poles in an original fusion.
Cà d'oro Continuo is the breathtaking table lamp by BRICALE™, the new luxury brand, 100% made in Italy, a Viadurini exclusive. BRICALE™ combines elegance, innovation and sustainability with the beauty of a unique natural material: Briccola wood, salvaged from the historical wooden poles called briccole, which characterize the Venetian lagoon since time immemorial.
The spectacular nature of this wood is enhanced by a vintage and modern lighting system. The refined metallic lamp holder is fixed to the glass as if it were hung. The light plays with the natural holes of the wood, thus creating a warm atmosphere. The glass transparency, just like pure water, highlights its magical reflections. Cà d'oro Continuo can be adjusted both vertically and horizontally, as you prefer. Its elegant design can enrich any interior, thanks to its incomparable and timeless style.

VENETIAN BRICCOLA WOOD
Precious oak poles immersed in sea waters for a long time. They are perforated by shipworms, small mollusks that sculpt the wood creating unrepeatable embroideries. After about ten years, the removal and replacement of these poles is ordered by the responsible of the lagoon’s protection, the Magistrate of Venice Waters.
BRICALE™ recovers and enhances the disused lagoon wooden poles, assuring them a new life. And their life is really new. So it was born CONTINUO, the exclusive furniture and lamp collection designed by the Italian architect Laura Cera. KERA ecodesign™ is how she signs her works.
Viadurini Collection by BRICALE™
The exclusive furnishing and lighting collection designed by the Architect Laura Cera in collaboration with KERA ecodesign™.
A thin layer of briccola wood follows the glass shape, starting a new life.
The new collection Viadurini Collection by BRICALE™ introduces an extraordinary innovation to the interior design world, wich results into the fusion of glass and briccola wood. The external structure is transparent, essential and functional, and aims at protecting the irregularity of the wood. A precious scroll that tells us the history of Venice, which is not only to admire and to possess, but also to live.
Aesthetic lightness, structural sturdiness and technical innovation do characterise these high-quality objects, which are the outcome of a long and experienced processing.
The Cà d'oro Continuo lamp is made of four panes of extra clear glass. One of them has a central hole to fix the lamp holder; the other three are decorated with a single layer of briccola wood.
The wood is subject to a slow and careful cleaning and drying process, before being cut and sanded. A thin layer of ecological transparent varnish helps preserving its natural beauty. Each single piece is carefully selected under the supervision of the designer. Thanks to an innovative and tried-and-tested high temperature gluing techniques, the wooden sheet perfectly adheres to the of glass. The glass is cleaned and refined by hand. Eventually, every part is welded together. The outcome is a unique structure with rounded edges.
The lighting kit is made in Italy with high quality materials and complies with the European norms.
