Design collection armchairs
As a contemporary artist it wasn't enough for me anymore the idea of people looking at my art only on canvas. So I decided to shift my paintings into design object in order to create unique pieced in limited edition. The uniqueness stays in the facts that these objects have been created by conteporary artists. The succes of this innovative vision of design collection is based in the absolute exclusion of the productive and commercial part in the creative phase. Objects of design collection are created without thinking about sales. Succes lays in the fact that marketing and people who are actually producing have never given indications about how things had to be done, which is what's happening instead in traditional designing.
Armchairs are objects of design collection
I got the inspiration from conteporary paintings, which are the material representation of my emotions. At some point though, I felt like I had to shift them into something that people could actually phisically enjoy. Armchairs have been my first creation of " Artistic design collection " (Art to be lived). The fact that I can look and phisically touch a work of mine, makes me very happy. By touching, caressing and SFIORARE a work of mine, people are touching my soul and it's a unique feeling. All the object of artistic design collection. I create, are realised by shifting the image of the conteporary painting on other objects, in this case armchairs have been my first example of what I always wanted to create. Armchairs are selected according to well defined criterias. They have to reflect my being a happy and positive person. They are made with precious wood and then worked through different phases. The painting for example is repeated four times in order to get a intense and deep colour. All this is created in order to make my object exclusive. Two armchairs will never be the same since I never keep the same varnish doses, because I don't want the creative process to be standardised. The most fascinating part is the creation of cloths that cover the armchairs, projected by me reflecting exactly the image of the paintings. This is the most fascinating part because two creative projects which are totally different are mixed: technology and handcrafted dexterity. It's something unique and it's not a case that opposits attract. The final phase is the selection of the materials that are used for the finish touches. Then the most magical moment comes, when my creative vision materialize: the assembly of all the materials that have been created thanks to the mastery of Italian artisans, who are carefully cutting and create the cloths on the armchairs. That's how we get a unique and exclusive piece of artistic design collection.
