It also applies to works by the “newcomers”, five designers invited by the gallery owner. Giorgia Zanellato has designed a series of vases in three different galvanic metal finishes whereas Matteo Cibic has created a transgenic-inspired lamp with a filament, in glass and with a gilded brass base.
Simone Fanciullacci and Antonio de Marco of design studio 4P1B propose two machines that complicate simple actions – and really need never have been designed – such as pouring water from a pitcher or extinguishing a candle flame.
Completing the collection are Zaven’s Olimpia lamp, midway between the architectural sculpture and the design object, and the work of artist Marco Raparelli, who has created an installation in which his designs take shape on an iron table made by artist and blacksmith Giovanni Casellato.
