The Ridge Collection is the newest contribution by Fernando Mastrangelo to the world of design-forward furniture. The range consists of stools, tables, and wall hangings. Each item is strongly influenced by the Brooklyn-based creator's understanding of the mountainous regions, "glaciers breaking away into bodies of water and water evaporating from sea flats." All of this is communicated through skillfully, experimental techniques that Fernando Mastrangelo utilizes to make an impression on the viewer. The patterns and shapes, specifically, present a strong unison that is character-defining.
Moreover, the silhouette and the decor are formed through a unique mix of materials — from colored glass and hand-dyed sand to cement, silica, and mirrors. Fernando Mastrangelo's creations also extend as a contemporary commentary of the consequences of global warming.
