Bartoli Design It is one of the stars of the show "Portraits, Reflections", staged for the first time in the spaces of Leo Galleries, in Monza, from 15 October to 14 November.
It is an exhibition that stages art and design by creating a real dialogue between the works: the intense and engaging faces, created with a decisive trait by the artist Roberta Coni, are reflected with their inquiring gaze in the reflective surfaces of the Bartoli Design pieces, giving life to a new artistic concept that is the union of the intuitions of both protagonists of the exhibition.
To give shape to the ideas of Bartoli Design is the company's decades of experience Laurameroni of Alzate Brianza, capable of making materials express through a meticulous search for innovative solutions. The creativity of Bartoli Design, the intensity of Roberta Coni, the productive ability of Laurameroni and the intuition of Leo Galleries, give life to a four-way dialogue that expresses a moment of synthesis and artistic creation of great suggestion - the first episode of a research that over time intends to investigate different themes through the combination of art and design.
In “Ritratti, Riflessi”, the design studio interprets the confrontation with art by presenting Cirque and Stars, iconic and abstract works - in whose mirror surfaces the mellow and deep touch of the portraits on display is reflected. Other geometric surfaces, in absolute brushed black color, reflect soft reflections of light and contrast, enhancing it, the luminous expressiveness of Roberta Coni's faces.
Containers as essential architectures, with a decisive and sculptural impact, which generate a mysterious scenario. Their inclined poses create an unexpected atmosphere, a slight disorientation; placed side by side, similar to metaphysical objects, they produce a suspension effect.
Cirque comes in three sizes, in brushed bone white, brushed absolute black, mirror polished stainless steel and in the two special editions in silver and black glass powder.
Geometric elements with a strong impact, surfaces broken down into sequences of increasing and decreasing rectangles, where the repetition of simple lines draws inspiration from Op Art and creates a strong visual interaction with the observer. Fragments of shapes and flashes of light are reflected and faded on the coatings in mirror-polished metal plates or made soft by brushing.
Stainless steel, black iron, natural brass, natural and burnished copper give light and materiality to the products and enhance their precious essence. Walnut “color” is the essence chosen for the interiors and as an option for the top of the sideboards.
Stars is declined in a collection of furnishings and architectural elements: tables and coffee tables, consoles, containers, boiserie and sliding doors.
