THE CURRENCY OF THE MASTERS - Milan - italy
2013 - SCENOGRAPHy
Objects rather than pieces of furniture trigger memories: iconic, almost all of them conceived for specific places, marked by the history of those places, by personalities, by their creators. These extraordinary pieces must not be allowed to languish, forgotten – I believe them to be eternally relevant. I bring them together because they remind me of the basics of design: not just because they take me back in time, but because they were crafted with a concise, poetic vision of the space and its objects in mind. They are shown in front of photographs
of the places for which they were created, with their own personal history. It is no coincidence that their “creators” all belong to the list of masters who, over the years, have contributed to the imaginary museum that inspires me.
“The past unconfined to the past.”
