Richard Yasmine’s “Cure” at Ventura Future 2019

From April 9 to 14 at BASE Milan, the Lebanese designer will show his latest work inspired by time and soul regeneration.

“The Cure”, the latest work by Lebanese architect and product designer Richard Yasmine, will be presented at Ventura Future 2019, hosted by the cultural project BASE that is located in a former industrial area in Milan. It consists of three elements - an armchair, a pendulum clock and a wall mounted lighting fixture- designed more as a set-up and installation than as stand-alone furnishing complements. Each one represents a different step in the same reflection on time, karma and self-reconciliation.  

The cure is not to be conceived as a remedy or concern, but as a re-establishment, a self-absolution from an excess of responsibility. We cannot have time control, for instance, we can awaken in us alertness for every moment of existence.

The white on white set-up acquires a spiritual and metaphysical value: judgment is suspended, there is no sign of error or failure. While the armchair in a headstone silhouette takes a message of destiny and regeneration, the notion of time is clearly entrusted to the pendulum clock, whose the small scale reminds us our certain end. The wall lighting – which consists of a radial halo mounted on a white background – wants to symbolize majesty of our soul.

The collection is made of white powder coated aluminium structure with various other materials such as brass, neo-cement, suede, Carrara marble and couture handmade embroidery with beads pearls and silk.
