MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2021 - SUPERSTUDIO MAXI
Paper sculptures or design objects? Sinuous shapes and fragile material become something more in the hands of the artist.
UFF the sound and the word of a blow. A good breath with some “F” more to mess up sheets and drawings of an artist’s workshop, mine. What follows: a microcosm of forms and visions in small and large format. Paper obviously that I investigated for more than twenty years and other similar lithe materials, presented in strips or lamellas. UFF design is the common base of several things: a small well-made artifact, an all-round sensory experience, an object at hand, an idea that speaks with other ideas and with space. After a confusion of sheets and drawings, we produce an inventory of things that have nothing to do with the practicality of what is usually called design, they are the possibility of having and providing a real, playful and surprising imaginary.
