Happy Clouds is the name of Mini Ghost decorated by Bartoli Design, one of the Ghost Mini that FIAM asked to reinterpret and decorate 37 Italian designers and not.
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 the glass in contrast with the sitting function, which requires instead stability and solidity. It is precisely this contrast combined with the unexpected soft and comfortable shapes, which earned the Ghost an immediate interest and a series of prizes and awards, the first of which already at its first appearance in 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 is much more than an anniversary 30esimo because it reflects the values and attention it Fiam has for the territory of the two Mini Ghost decorated by each designer a will in fact be auctioned at a charity event organized by the company and the proceeds will be allocated to initiatives in support of earthquake victims in central Italy.
