In 1975, Gabriele de Vecchi – the son of De Vecchi’s founder, Piero – laid the foundations for the H²O water jug. He chose a rectangular silver form, which he softened with an olive wood handle and a fluid base, details that would later feature in the pared-back collections of the 1990s. Each handcrafted aspect is a testament to the Italian craftsmanship behind it, as well as the highly reflective properties of curved silver. An example of this piece is on permanent display at a museum in Ghent.

De Vecchi

From a young age, Piero de Vecchi was interested in futurism, sculpture and engraving – interests that led to the opening of his first silver workshop in 1935. It wasn’t long before he distinguished himself as a force to be reckoned with, with numerous success stories making their way into the Triennale and MOMA museums. A few years later, in 1962, his son Gabriele succeeded him, driven by the relationship between an object and its environment. Then, in the 1990s, he passed the baton to a third generation of the De Vecchi family: his sons, Matteo and Giacomo, who continue to develop the name alongside esteemed goldsmith, Vhernier. They cherish honest design and Italian craft, ensuring each collection ties back to the two personalities that started it.
