The 15 mm Versato® Crystal edge sheet – especially when in bright light – generates a unique look and feel as the elegant colour of the material only really shows at the laser cut edges. The thickness of the sheets also results in a solid, durable and lasting piece of furniture. The occasional tolerances of the cast sheet are compensated through a simple mechanical spring mechanism. Through basic joining principles the need for tools, glue or other fastening techniques is eliminated and flat packed shipping is possible.

Giorgio Vigna, Acque Astrali, Studio La Città, Verona
il tema dominate è l’acqua, elemento ricorrente in tutte le opere esposte: dalle Acque Astrali, sassi in vetro di Murano – sorta di pietre d’acqua con inclusioni d’aria sospesa che evocano l’altrove, alle Cosmografie, lavori su carta realizzati con la tecnica dell’acquatipo, dove l’inchiostro viene disperso in acqua creando galassie imprevedibili, fino alle recentissime Acque, ciotole di varie dimensioni in cui Vigna esplora le possibilità del vetro nella relazione mistica fra acqua e fuoco.

Encompassing multiple works drawn from the collection of The Irving Penn Foundation, the exhibition will showcase Penn’s mixed-media paintings from the late 1980s through the early 2000s, highlighting the artist’s experimentation with materials, form, and colour.
Drawing inspiration from leading 20th century figures such as Henri Matisse, Giorgio Morandi, and Fernand Léger, Penn’s textured, primarily abstract, paintings deviate from the striking style of his photographs yet share in similar techniques and bold character. Penn’s paintings comprise successive layers, resembling collages. In an evolution of his platinum-palladium printing technique for photography, many of Penn’s paintings commenced with the artist creating a drawing in graphite or ink of subjects ranging from mushrooms to mythical creatures, which he would then photograph, enlarge, and print to emphasize his lines’ graphic style.

Un piccolo gioiello che pochi conoscono si cela nei sotterranei dell’Accademia di Belle Arti di Berlino. Si tratta di una stanza, di una cantina per essere precisi, tutta affrescata da ex studenti poco prima della costruzione del Muro di Berlino. Siamo tra il 1957 e il 1958 quando un gruppo di ragazzi dipinge scene dionisiache tanto da far diventare lo spazio uno di quei simboli anticonformisti della Germania dell’est. dopo trent’anni di chiusura, questo spazio viene riaperto. ph Andreas FranzXaver
As part of the recent lluèrnia festival of light and fire in Catalonia, David Oliva of SP25 Arquitectura and Anna Juncà of Atelier 4 created this spectacular flow of lava using common fortune teller origami figures.
Over 10,000 folded pieces of paper were needed to create the work that was illuminated from underneath and further brought to life with smoke machines. Titled simply “Origami Lava,” the piece was affixed to an abandoned building in Olot, a town surrounded by dormant volcanoes.
