In the world of design, copper has aroused great interest, particularly in recent times with surprising and original outcomes. Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Antonio Citterio, Dimore Studio, Tom Dixon, Odoardo Fioravanti, Martí Guixé, Gujan Gupta, Poul Henningsen, Thomas Heatherwick, Shiro Kuramata, Ross Lovegrove, Nucleo, Gio Ponti/Paolo De Poli, Tobia Scarpa, Ettore Sottsass, Oskar Zieta and Giorgio Vigna, to mention a few, have designed and created common household objects due to their attraction to the shine of copper and its oxidation and technological applications.
