SEEN AT THE SUPERDESIGN SHOW: THE MATERIAL AND ITS STORIES
Textures, fabrics, plays of color and light create deceptions around a story that starts from matter and materials, the true fil rouge that has united many sections this year, and which has been able to decline the concrete and sensitive, tangible reality of the objects in ever-changing ways. Fun and avant-garde experiments, very light tables and chairs in carbon thread, a lamp made of beads, foam rubber seats where you can sink comfortably. Objects that create reliefs and reflections, lumpy vases, hand-crafted and 3D printed ceramics, relief surfaces, honeycomb floors that imitate the viscosity of beehive cells and hold the soles of those who pass through them.
The material this year is the protagonist and, sometimes, even plays nice tricks: the textured alcarol table is a trompe l'oeil that recalls rocks and earth, the apparently musky seat by Kawashima Selkon Textiles is made of precious yarns that change according to of the light.
