From Grottaglie in Milan, return. In his concept showroom in Via A. Volta 18, Volubilis Milan and invites all visitors to the Salone del Mobile to participate the creation of a collective intergenerational.
Milan, Salone del Mobile - Volubilis, the single-brand showroom of the well-known Del Monaco majolica and above all a place of cohesion, tradition and innovation, challenges visitors to the city of Milan and the 2013 edition of the Salone del Mobile, in a collective work.
Collective platform. The title chosen for the work conceived and designed by Vincenzo Del Monaco and Demis Martinelli, both craftsmen, both artists, both sons of art and craft shops operating in the family.
A marathon which provides audience interaction with matter, which can be modeled and decomposed autonomously, day after day, and arbitrarily positioned on the ferrous and sinuous grid by Demis Martinelli (www.demismartinelli.com), passing through the ceramic intervention by Vincenzo Del
Monaco (www.ceramichedelmonaco.it - www.bottegadelmonaco.it) which will engage in a conclusive but not definitive act, leaving the becoming as
To ask “What are the possibilities of a project in which multiple variables are involved? What and how many are the constraints of a project today? "
The only answer, given the constraints and having amplified them through the artistic intervention, can be the unpredictability of the interaction, of the relationship, of people.
It is there that the project takes on an authentic dimension. It is in the encounter with the public, with 'other' designers, with imaginative clients and with a temporal dimension that is constantly dilated in the moment, in the present, in the continuous. A unique story, of which art, design and tradition are the chapters that make up the plot, intertwining: the artistic dimension of the uniqueness of the work, the rules of design and the seriality of the product, the never extinguished tradition of knowledge and of the ability to deal with matter.
The 'PiattaForma Collective' will be the ideal place where art, design and tradition will meet, being able to intersect with the stories of everyone, without depriving themselves of
human breath of the visitor, who will be a true explorer of form and matter.
Starting from 2 to 20 April 2013, passing in Via Volta at number 18 you can be the protagonists of a collective material ritual full of meanings.
