Light and fanciful, fresh and sparkling, precious and luxurious is the Merci di Culto collection. Signed by Alessandra Scarfò, a young designer working in the contemporary Italian and international scenario.
The different forms patented in the form of a collection at the Chamber of Commerce, are applicable to earrings (plexiglass and silver 925), mirrors and wall clocks (plexiglass). The common thread wants to be a tribute to design and its history, recalling what Carmagnola and Ferraresi would define as "cult goods". In this realm the commodity is much more than itself; in it converge an infinity of collective interests and suggestions, rich in evocative values. The sense of sociality and respect for the other are deeply felt by the designer, who prefers the mirroring material, to stimulate an interactive, playful and creative relationship, capturing "portions of heaven and earth" to take with her.
The "Goods of worship" are self-produced and distributed in different shops: Pink Martini being De Gasperi and via Monferrato in Turin, Via Piol in Rivoli (To), Crim shop in Via San Francesco da Paola in Turin, in via Atlantis Rossini in Turin and VIA FOXES in Como.
Furthermore, they were chosen by the publisher Castoro (Milan) curator of the Museum store of the National Cinema Museum of the Mole Antonelliana in Turin, where they are on sale and by the publisher Corraini for the Museum store of the Arnaldo Pomodoro Foundation in Milan.
The collection "Cargo Cult", created by young Italian designer Alessandra Scarfo, can be defined as stylish yet refreshing, sparkling precious yet with a touch of luxury.
Made in laser-cut mirrored plexiglass and silver 925, the collection of earrings, mirror and wall clocks comes in different shapes, as a tribute to Design and its history. It refers to what Carmagnola and Ferraresi define as “Merci di Culto“: in this reality, goods are much more than they seem: they reflect a multitude of interests and collective suggestions.
The sense of community and the concept of the Other have always been very important in the designer's formation. That's why she chose a reflective material, as an invitation to an amusing and creative introspection, to frame, capture and touch the sky. . They are available in various design shops in Italy, as well as within the museum shops of the National Museum of Cinema in Turin and the Triennale Design museum in Milan and in the Fondazione Pomodoro museum store in Milan
