Living Divani 50+30 @ Palazzo Crivelli
A celebration of Living Divani’s linear elegance and sartorial spirit: to mark the brand's 50th anniversary and his 30 years as Art Director, Piero Lissoni sets up a maze of mirrors in the historical spaces of Palazzo Crivelli, in via Pontaccio 12 in Milan, where "The Uncollected Collection", the limited edition signed by the renowned designer will be shown for the first time, to celebrate and seal the double anniversary. Spectacular reflections, astonishing play of shadows and light: the magical atmosphere ranges from dream-like to technological and futuristic, highlighting the pieces on show from different angles in a combination of art and design.
Two families of objects, the first with full, coloured and sinuous volumes made of cast aluminium, for impressive pieces of furniture with a fantastic flavour; the second with exceptionally ethereal and simplified silhouettes in steel rod and aluminium, thin tangled elements that sometimes feature as table feet, others as chair legs.
An apparent dichotomy of a single idea: the sartorial skills of the brand and its incredible ability to translate the complexity of a project into contemporary while impeccable silhouettes, that always manage to look simple, proving that there is no need to shout louder than everyone else to be heard, noticed and recognised as one of the Italian reality of excellences on the international scene.
