Design, Light, Future, Living

Brand-new and unconventional visions of contemporary design

DeLightFuL - Matteo Garrone tells his short film

Following on from “Before Design: Classic”, Ciarmoli Queda Studio’s project dedicated to exploring the concept of the classic presented at the 55th Salone del Mobile di Milano, for the 2017 event the pair will be delving into at the world of contemporary design in their inimitably original, unusual and exciting approach.

The result is DeLightFuL, a visual and sensory exploration of everyday living and the contemporary space, reflecting on the new generations, especially on Millennials, and investigating the new ways in which they live in and conceive the domestic space: fluid and cross-cutting, a balance between technology and archetypal living, between public and private, between basic needs and new desires in a bid to achieve creativity and overturn the traditional subdivisions into functional areas.

Design, Light, Future and Living are the four key concepts that, together, make up DeLightFuL, a word that guides and expresses all of the exhibit’s forms and content.Contemporary living is defined by an architectural and poetic use of light, its ability to influence the perception of space and create a dynamic and ever-evolving environment, and its use as a theatrical element capable of outlining spaces and evoking atmospheres. Magical lighting effects will create a sort of metaphysical nest, an intimate world that, although imaginary and virtual, ensures security and serenity for those who inhabit it.

A vast selection of furnishings tells the story of contemporary design, transformed into one-off pieces through unusual combinations of materials, fabrics, treatments and colours that create high-impact installations. A series of doors provides catalysing gateways to change, leading to different spaces and a rediscovery of a renewed space for us to call home. The venture focuses very much on colour for its playful, passionate and irreverent expression of contemporary living and a new freedom of expression.
