F.LLI RAZETO & CASARETO PRESENTS OBLÒ, THE BOAT HANDLE DESIGNED BY ZUCCON INTERNATIONAL PROJECT
Oblò is the new high-tech boat handle masterfully designed for F.lli Razeto & Casareto by brother and sister team Martina and Bernardo Zuccon and given its world premiere at the 2023 Genoa Boat Show.
Oblò is the latest extraordinary creation of a company that for over a century has been producing fittings, hardware and accessories for boats and the marine sector in general, featuring high quality and cutting-edge technology. The inner essence of this handle, like all F.lli Razeto & Casareto’s products, is extraordinary because it grew out of collaboration with one of the world’s most important architecture firms, Zuccon International Project led by Martina and Bernardo Zuccon, which has helped write the history of yachting by designing some of the most beautiful boats afloat.
The handle looks simple but is imprinted with stylistic details that allude to one of the best known nautical symbols, the porthole. “I became fascinated by the idea of the porthole,” explains Bernardo Zuccon, “because it’s something that runs through the entire history of ships. The porthole is an archetypal element that defines the relationship between humans and the sea, an aperture that gives us the possibility of seeing, dreaming and fantasizing. Basing myself on this concept, I tried to adapt the typical porthole shape to suggest the image of a handle”.
