VISIONNAIRE: BEAUTY 2020

Beauty is a word with an intense and multifaceted meaning. In addition to defining a horizon of positivity and aspiration, the contemporary beauty that Visionnaire tells is its own aptitude for realizing projects and objects of extraordinary singularity. Constant technological research, experimentation on materials, the combination and mixing of the elements, the hand of our craftsmen who tests, perfects and defines a new material solution, these elements define the identity of each individual product and make it unique and irreplaceable although reproducible.

This year Visionnaire expands its Art Design proposal, taking on the great challenge of contextualising it in a retail perspective and involving designers of exceptional artistic talent, with a strong aptitude for experimenting with materials: almost “Renaissance” personalities for the method and the individual commitment in the genesis and realization of their creations in the laboratory. Marc Ange‘s “Il Pavone” collection, previewed in December on the occasion of Miami Art Basel in its “haute couture” throne version and “prêt-à-porter” armchairs, returns to Milan with exclusive fabrics in six color variations. The armchairs and the “Pavone” throne, placed inside the Wunderkammer, will be presented together with the light installation by Gupica for a true “lost in paradise” effect.

Alessandro La Spada creates a new table – Arkady – with a sculptural underneath in artistic stone. The stone slab is worked manually to give this element a unique and precious value, through the bas-relief workings of Crema Marfil stone, with irregular edges and the laying of artistic resins and Himalayan salt. The legs are made of metal, worked by pouring in sand, in order to create a three-dimensional texture with a “hammered” effect with an animalic reference. Nature transforms and assumes a hybrid identity, the result of the encounter between its very essence and human artistic talent.

The new collaboration with the designers Draga & Aurel translates into a truly original capsule; Amos is a real jewel table: two metal bracelets worked by fusion in sand, with a lunar effect, close in an embrace around the concrete base, poured into an armed mold and worked with an exclusive erosion treatment. Sputnik lights are made up of multiple rhomboid elements that define an “origami” metal composition. The lines of these lamps draw a fractal motif, in which the metal surfaces reflect lights that cast scenic shadows all around. The Lego console and low table are also characterized by the combination and contrast of two materials, treated with different finishes. Precious and “raw”, shiny gold of the metal and opaque black of the cement. This apparent oxymoron translates into a unity with two souls.

The architect Mauro Lipparini presents a boiserie as a free, instinctive, non-approved project from a distant background, full of powerful and elegant traditions inspired by the African world. It is a contemporary boiserie in Eucalyptus Frisè with all the functions of an equipped wall, which can be assembled in a totally tailored way. Lines, curvilinear planes, grooves, continuity, discontinuity, coplanarity of the surfaces are underlined and marked by the linearity of the shelves, allowing a graphic play of chiaroscuro and luminous signs with rounded throats. The boiserie is characterized by the alternation of double depth volumes, surrounded by concave and convex elements. Desmond, a jewel in the center of the room made by Mauro Lipparini, enhances the perception of roundness with the absence of edges, increasing the sense of preciousness of the display cases. The central piece of furniture in Eucalyptus Frisé acts as a pillar for the suspended glass volumes, which give the whole composition a feeling of lightness.

MEMOBOTTLE

Design | August 11, 2020

MEMOBOTTLE Memobottle was born from two major societal frustrations that founders Jesse Leeworthy and Jonathan Byrt decided they had to do something about. Firstly, the single-use water bottle epidemic: 525 billion single-use bottles were purchased and consumed last year (1 million every single minute), despite 91% of the global population having access to clean drinking […] Read more


Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us

Art | July 25, 2020

Katharina Grosse’s paintings can appear anywhere: on a rubber boot, on an egg, on the crumpled folds of a cloth, along a railway line, on the beach, in snow, on a sculptural form, or across a façade and on the roof. Her large-scale works are multi-dimensional pictorial worlds in which splendid colours sweep across walls, ceilings, objects, and even entire buildings and landscapes. Central to Grosse’s artistic practice is this notion that painting takes place not just on canvas, but that it can also permeate every facet of our surroundings. For the exhibition "Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us", the artist has transformed the Historic Hall of Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, as well as the outdoor space behind the building, into an expansive painting which radically destabilises the existing order of the museum architecture.
