Fuorisalone 2015; Marni Mercado de Paloquemao

Fuorisalone 2015; Marni Mercado de Paloquemao

In occasione del Salone del Mobile 2015 lo showroom Marni di Viale Umbria 42 si trasformerà in un mercato di frutta, il Marni Mercado de Paloquemao.
Ispirato all’omonimo mercato di Bogotá, Colombia, Marni propone un allestimento in cui i protagonisti sono i colori sgargianti dei frutti esotici di una terra lontana, le loro forme e una loro interpretazione. Come per il progetto Animal House dello scorso anno, anche in questa edizione ogni pezzo è unico ma declinato in diversi colori. I frutti diventano sculture realizzate in metallo e pvc che possono essere contenitori, nelle dimensioni più grandi, o oggetti decorativi per il centrotavola in quelle più piccole. Il set-up dell’installazione invita alla convivialità, da vivere intorno ad una grande tavolata, arricchita dalle sagome dei frutti esotici e apparecchiata con piatti di latta decorati a mano con motivi d’archivio Marni. Intorno alla tavola le nuove sedute Marni, in metallo e intrecci di pvc colorato. Sgabelli di varie forme, intrecci e colori completano la collezione. Una libertà espressiva nella scelta delle composizioni che si riflette nelle collezioni Marni, dove ogni abbinamento è unico e inaspettato.
Un ricco convivio dove gustare ananas, guanabana, zapote e curuba: sono i frutti che Marni ha portato dalla Colombia, con l’intento di far conoscere al pubblico della Design Week sapori diversi, proponendo nei giorni di sabato 18 e domenica 19 Aprile workshop tematici. Anche quest’anno le edizioni limitate di oggetti e di arredi sono state realizzate interamente a mano in Colombia, coinvolgendo un gruppo di donne che attraverso il lavoro hanno trovato la propria indipendenza ed emancipazione.
Marni Mercado de Paloquemao sarà aperto al pubblico dal 14 al 19 Aprile, dalle ore 10.00 alle ore 19.00.

Fuorisalone Milano 2014: Corso Como 9

Corso Como 9: Low Motion. Four Dutch designers teamed up to show in Milan during Fuori Salone at SPAZIOCORSOCOMO9 at the inner courtyard of Corso Como 9. Why did Geke Lensink, Jesse Visser, Thomas Eurlings and youasme measyou team up? ” What unites us is the aspiration to make products that transcend time and become part of your life.” We visited their exhibition yesterday and we were pleasantly surprised by a very calm and tranquil environment, we spent quite a long time amongst the designs. Milan design week is a bit of a circus you must know:  lot’s of lights, color and music, all very loud. The Low Motion show was the opposite of that, we came to rest amongst the products and really got to get to “meet” them properly. Quite a special experience we must say. We suggest a visit to Low Motion if you are in Milan this week (april 8-13 2014)
