Furniture that has made the history of design. Or rather Anti-design. Casaidea 2017, at the Fiera di Roma from 18 to 26 March, hosts for the 43rd edition the exhibition "Dalì ... a qui" - The Body and Design between dream and reality, an exhibition in pavilion 1 that tells the steps of design and of Anti-design, a design reality that developed in Italy starting from the 60s and 70s.
Assuming that dreams decide for us, the unconscious becomes the creative engine: Anti-design addresses its criticism to planning that was placed at the service of a consumer society, then in full expansion. The result is objects that are ironic and eccentric in their languages and shapes and innovative in their use functions. They take shape from the energy of design, thanks also to the use of the expressive potential of kitsch and irony, unique furnishings, works in which matter and color are essential tools of the project that is called to communicate emotions.
The exhibition itinerary of "Dalì ... a qui" - The Body and Design between dream and reality leads the visitor into a common thread that unites - on the theme of form, myth and play - works by Andrea Salvati, Adolfo Natalini, Alessandro Mendini, Lo Mazzi, Urano Palma, Sergio Cammilli, Luigi Belli, Luigi Ontani, Pietro Del Vaglio, Massimo Luccioli and Tommaso Cascella, among the greatest artists of contemporary design.
The exhibition, promoted by Moa Cooperative Society organizer of Casaidea 2017, is coordinated by Sandro Conte and Eraldo Roberti and realized in collaboration with "MIRABILI - L'arte di abitare" and the patronage of the Order of Architects, Planners, Landscape Architects and Conservators of Rome and Province.
“Dalì… a qui” - The Body and Design between dream and reality is curated by Sandro Conte and Eraldo Roberti.
