designed by Mercedesz Nagy

Florentin’s flower-motif comes from an old book about medieval architecture and ornaments in which it decorated a wall in a monastery’s cloister. The tetragonal, half-opened spaces and undulating, smooth lines of the flower were designed for meditation and contemplation. Nagy amplified the pattern and stretched out the interspaces with asymmetric rhombi to create an enduring and significant look. The name, Florentin—which can refer to the capital of the Renaissance—is also a male name meaning ‘flourishing, thriving’ and ‘considerable’. It derives from ‘flower’ but resonates for mankind, just as the main character in Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s novel Love in the Time of Cholera, Florentino Ariza, still enthrals his childhood love at the age of 80. Florentino Azira is tenacious and steady while also extremely gentle, similar to flower patterns cast in concrete.
