DANESE (Pav 2, Stand B 24)
Building Objects are the latest products from Danese designed by Mario Cucinella Architects, produced alongside the masters of glass, marble, solid wood, ceramic, terracotta, brass and textiles. Each object is inspired by a formal or structural architectural detail from a specific building designed by them and thus tell a story while providing different perspectives and unexpected “combinations.”
Apax is a shiny brass centrepiece, reminiscent of the Abitazione per la Pace di Scanzano Jonico in Matera. The project was inspired by a single sheet of paper folded Origami-style into the shape of a butterfly.
Guastalla, a clay vase produced by 3D printing, was inspired by La Balena nursery school at Guastalla in Reggio Emilia. The body of the vase draws on the sinuous forms of the school, and it was created by rotating and vertically interpreting the cross section of the building.
MCV is another centrepiece, created in clay by 3D printing, inspired by the shapes of the hypogeum of the Museum of Etruscan Art - Luigi Rovati Foundation in Milan’s Corso Venezia. Its circularity and the characteristic traits of the museum basement museum are reprised in the sinuous curves of the vase.
