The Homo Sapiens freestanding glass valet is a striking addition to a modern home and an innovative way to display and store clothes and accessories. Aptly named because of its human body-like structure, the twisted glass near the spherical base is a dramatic feature to make this double as a useful piece of furniture and masterpiece. The bowl feature at the top is a great place to put jewelry and other small objects.
The Homo sapiens freestanding glass valet is designed by Fabio De Bartolomei for Fiam Italia and is manufactured in Italy. The structure is made of 12 mm curved clear glass, and the object holder is matte black lacquered with a spherical cap base.

designed byFabio Di Bartolomei
Born in Udine, Fabio di Bartolomei started his career in 1979 by launching the Di Bartolomei Design Studio, that focuses in the field of architecture and interior design for both public and private places. Soon after opening his private firm, Di Bartolomei formed working partnerships of industrial design with some of the most renown Italian companies in the furniture and lighting sector, including FIAM, Tonon, Bieffeplast, Montina, Calligaris, and Skipper.
Di Bartolomei work is so iconic that it's displayed in several design exhibitions in Italy and abroad. In 1996, he received the “Marcello d' Olivo” award for design, making him even more respected in the industrial design field around the world.
