The phrase “ON” within the identify of the mission has a double which means: it’s translated “on,” the other of “off,” as a result of the colour is strongly current in it; it must also be understood as “superimposed, on.”
The mission observes and experiments with the habits of the identical hue on completely different supplies: iron, plaster, canvas, wooden. The service colours of the mission are literally solely three (RAL 7011, RAL 7038, NCS-S0580-Y80R), juxtaposed and superimposed on the supplies by letting the completely different floor reactions of the supplies to mild gently differentiate them.
Taking up this work was a chance to query the character of a pure inside design. The condominium, on the highest ground with a terrace on the roof, positioned in a newly constructed constructing and inhabited for the primary time, didn’t require or enable for any ground plan adjustments. The work subsequently consisted of a mirrored image on the prevailing areas and the dwelling area of the long run inhabitants, a younger couple in love with design, music, trend, up to date artwork, and popular culture.
The development of latest environments subsequently came about within the cavities of furnishings design, similar to these of the sculptural and maybe even architectural TAB desk, or within the sheet steel equipment that accommodate amongst their folds the habitat of family objects or within the 45-degree angles of the low furnishings in the lounge.
The design path taken with the purchasers was a condensation of the options from our up to date world and likewise of wanting to decorate up one’s personal wishes. In a spontaneous and pure approach, the mission was populated with the passions of the house owners; that for artwork with, for instance, the Bear Masks by Arsenio Rodriguez, and for music with vinyl information, musical but additionally visible assist of the covers, an object excellent synthesis of the multichannel and pervasive nature of artwork that turns into an on a regular basis object.
On this microcosm, the voyage of the ex-voto cross, coming from a bit market in Mexico Metropolis (one of many cities of the house owners’ coronary heart) arrives naturally in entrance of Cattelan’s 1:47 scale finger and subsequent to the flat shade of the big RAL7038 canvases stretched by the painter (Tiziano Chiappa), one of many designer’s instruments of experimentation with mild, shade and floor.
This mission was born earlier than the pandemic, the dialogue that introduced it to fruition gently accompanied and enlivened the times of lockdowns with its colours and shapes.
Now, with the struggle in Ukraine simply starting, its which means once more appears to have to vary however the great thing about the colours and lightweight on them nonetheless appear nostalgically valuable to us.
