Hangar Design Group presents at the Fuorisalone 2016 a selection of his creations for Acera, ceramic manufacturer in Taiwan and China: objects dedicated to the well-being of the person and to the care of the house, in the wake of the oriental holistic culture, but strongly anchored to Italian design in the forms and choices of colors.
During the fair, the collection can be purchased online thanks to the e-shop starting from the beginning of April.
The tradition of hand-molded ceramics is as old as civilizations and is omnipresent on all continents. A particular space, however, places this decorative art in the history of Taiwan, where a productive culture continues to flourish and has been able to renew itself and cross the culture of Southeast Asia with a more international vision.
In this context the collaboration between Hangar Design Group and the Taiwanese producer ACERA is located, in an exercise of constant contamination between ancestral techniques of ceramic art and contemporary design.
The collection interprets commonly used accessories - carafes, tableware, or the typical cup for tea to take with oneself - grafting on conventional forms and functions citations and references to the posters of Italian design of the 80 years, where the pictorial element and decorative becomes a fragment of a moving picture.
The shapes are always essential: chamfered cylinders, truncated cone carafes, semi-spherical bowls with rigorous geometries just softened by the need for use.
The underlying theme is the use of the design and the decorative pattern, which acts as a counterpoint to the functional constraint: full backgrounds alternate with large brushstrokes, variations of textures give rise to neat patterns, colors in degradé chase on the surfaces of objects in a large freedom of decorations.
The lines are declined in fresh pastel colors or sometimes in more intense colors, which do not fear to venture into multicolored contrasting combinations.
The entire collection marries design and craftsmanship with well-being. It is in fact made of ceramic enriched with white tourmaline, mineral able to release negative ions that contribute to purify the liquid or the contained food, combining concrete beneficial effects with the pleasure of a contemporary design.
