#2 Inspired by water as energy for life, Gupica designed her new collection of modular furniture and fabric wallpaper that will be on view at Salone Satellite 2015 in Milan. #salone2015
Landscapes & Stalactites by Gupica, the trade mark of Gunilla Zamboni, is a project inspired by water as energy for life.
Stalactites is a collection of modular furniture, resembling icicles in shape and made of square based parallelepipeds designed and vertically assembled.
The environment is completed by the Landscapes collection, fabric wallpaper of landscaped scenic designs created by Gunilla Zamboni and printed on fabric, that tells of an hybrid nature and hints at an imaginary landscape.
In Stalactites Gunilla Zamboni reveals her fascination with one of the many of nature’s masterpieces; the ice stalactites that are born from water in strange and wondrous shapes. An homage to the ever flowing water, the life giving element that changes, freezes, melts and nourishes the Earth. Gunilla Zamboni tackles the subject of climate change, investigates the role of glaciers within our ecosystem and through design tells of its shapes and beauty.
The Landscape series of naturalistic wall designs are inspired by the iconography of landscape paintings and frescoes of the 19th Century and by the arcane fascination that vegetation inspires.
