NEL BLU DIPINTO DI BLU

Design is visually powerful, intellectually elegant and, above all, timeless.
Massimo Vignelli

This encounter of forms, in some instances essential, in others sinuous and rhythmic in which the color blue dominates, begins with Piero Fornasetti’s modernity, with a delicate reinterpretation of an oriental screen with birds ready to take flight in the sky (1953).

The same linearity is then found in the warmth of Paolo Traversi’s bamboo furniture, in a perfect dialogue between simplicity and the search for maximum comfort (produced in the 1970s)

Continuing our journey we discover the power of stone in Angelo Mangiarotti’s slender planters (sculpted in the 1970s), which enhance the whiteness of the Carrara marble giving it lightness and splendor. Light pours in, invading the space and shaping it, caressing the concentric glass curves of the majestic table by Lazzarini and Pickering (produced on commission of Galleria Rossella Colombari in 2016), creating shadows on the floor resembling a thousand drops of crystalline water.
