Happy Clouds is the name of the Mini Ghost decorated by Bartoli Design, one of the Mini Ghosts that FIAM has asked to reinterpret and decorate Italian and non-Italian designers at 37.
The initiative was conceived by FIAM 30esimo to celebrate the anniversary of the Ghost armchair designed by Cini Boeri and his collaborator Tomu Katajanagi and presented for the first time at the Milan Furniture Fair 1987.
The immateriality and the idea of fragility evoked by glass contrast with the seating function, which instead requires stability and solidity. It is precisely this contrast combined with the unexpected soft and welcoming forms, which has earned Ghost an immediate interest and a series of prizes and awards, the first of which was already at its first appearance in the 1987.
Ghost is a timeless product that translates the essence in a form, the glass technology to the limits became magic, producing a masterpiece.
Watching her against the sky we saw the clouds, his light touch has guided us in the paint them six hands with the colors chosen by Cini.
Bartoli Design (Anna, Carlo and Paolo Bartoli)
I worked from Cini Boeri for a short time. By Cini "designer" is the substantial innovation ability, the will to challenge the technology or profiles to make progress, and synthesis in a practical and elegant sign. By Tomu was the contribution in developing intuition ensuring that the innovative aspect was emphasized.
The project represents much more than a 30th anniversary because it reflects the values and the attention that Fiam feeds on the territory: the two Mini Ghost decorated by each designer will be auctioned in a charity event organized by the company and the proceeds will be allocated to initiatives to support the earthquake victims in central Italy.
