Description

A metaphysical object, that would not look out of place in a square painted by Giorgio de Chirico. This atypical bench by Vito Nesta for Tappezzerie Druetta takes its name from the entrance of a historic Milanese building located in Via Fucini 5. A tribute to the past interior design of this city through elements such as the traditional Terrazzo pavement (the satin upholstery of the bench). The design of the bench itself evokes the drawing of the gigantic stained glass window in the background of the building.

Supported by the outstanding knowledge and techniques of Tappezzerie Druetta, that carries on his research on bespoke upholstery furniture since 1953, Vito Nesta balanced his peculiar vision with references from the past. The colors of this project, for instance, are inspired by Gio Ponti, that in 1952 titled an article penned for the magazine “Everything in the World Must Be Colorful”. “Cast a red floor throughout the house, a lake of fire, with white walls and ceilings, and curtains colored red, yellow, or red and yellow, which is another beautiful range. But also (emerald) green tones”, Ponti wrote. The same colors Nesta selected instinctively for his Via Fucini 5 project. A small, domestic, bright Italian architecture.

Curated by

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.
