Description

A mathematical series of cuts are executed on a brass industrial profile, generating an object with a significant materic flexibility. “Bicaudata” is a new shape that minimizes the production impact and material involved.

Like a fork-tailed mermaid, pressure and heat divide the industrial profile that opens to embrace a flower into it’s/her center.

About the designer


Ilaria Bianchi

Ilaria Bianchi is a product and a furniture designer, journalist, and professor based in Milan. She works for design studios, galleries, companies, and private clients. She started her own practice in 2015 after earning her degree in Industrial Design at the Polytechnic of Turin and an MA in Ceramic, Furniture, and Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins in London. Her work, which uses a multidisciplinary approach, ranges from industrial design to unique pieces, to installations. It molds artisanal and technical techniques, studying design solutions with an analytical and critical perspective as well as a strong focus on sustainability. Material experimentation is central in her research process - the action and manipulation of reality are crucial elements in her project language. Her works are shown in galleries, cultural centers, and international fairs such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, Triennale di Milano, Building Gallery, Dimore Gallery(Dimore Studio), Galleria Luisa delle Piane, Chamber NYC, MiArt, Stockholm Design Fair, London Design Fair, Salone del Mobile, and many others. In 2020, her collective The Ladies’ Rooms has been selected by Elle Decoration for the EDIDA as Best Young Designers of the year. In 2019, she was selected by AD Italia as one of the “7 Designers of the Future”. In 2018, she was selected by Elle Decor as the Next Designer of the Year and her \"Duo Shelf\" project was one of the WallPaper* 2018 Design Award Winners. In 2017, Ilaria was selected as one of the 100 \"Ambassadors of Italian Design\" for the Italian Design Day event promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. She was also included in the \"Under 35 Italian Design\" exhibition at Triennale di Milano. In 2016, she founded The Ladies\' Room collective with Agustina Bottoni, Astrid Luglio, and Sara Ricciardi. Their work began as a co-operation for observing contemporary design by creating artifacts and experiences, that is the engine of discussion on the renewed need for sensory involvement.

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
