of Gaetano Pesce was very evident!!!! Color, materials,
shape, and texture were all part of
the homage to his genius!!!!
The collection "L'Abbraccio," a collaboration between world renowned architect-artist-designer Gaetano Pesce and Michela Barona's furniture company Le Fablier, at the Triennale Design Museum, is a stunning exhibition of extraordinary, whimsical, and exciting new work ...... and it totally reinforces Pesce's design dominance!!! The furniture collection consists of tables, chairs, bookcase, sideboard, cupboard, and wardrobe. "Although it is off-the-shelf furniture, each piece is crafted so that it has unique features." Materials include polyexpoide, polyurethane resins, and hard foams .... elements familiar to Pesce's work, but there is an addition of wood, which is part of the Le Fablier world.
"L'Abbraccio is classic and contemporary styles coming together and celebrates today's fusion trend, with facts, events, thoughts, behavior and actions no longer expressions of "consistency", "monolithicity", "repetition", stiffness", :linearity", "standardization", "masculinity"; on the contrary they have all become signs of "multidisciplinarity", "coexistence", "elasticity", "unpredictability", "fluidity", "femininity" ....."
The individual pieces in this collection communicate "feelings of surprise, discovery, optimism, stimulation, sensuality, generosity, joy, and femininity." The exciting colors, materials, and textures ..... combined with humor and whimsey ....... and the energizing exuberance of the pieces, makes this one of the most exciting exhibitions in Milan!!!!!
Adding one piece of this furniture to a room, would
be the ultimate "accessoration" for 2010!!!!!
