MAURIZIO GALANTE & TAL LANCMAN
Transversal Design. Haute Couture – Design – Architecture

The exhibition Transversal Design brings together numerous projects carried out by fashion designer Maurizio Galante and trend forecaster Tal Lancman in the past years. Poetic installations, such as the leaping Tiger Cloud (2009) made of 2.500 sheets of tulle, are accompanied by lamps and light objects, such as Altaïca Tigris (2010), a crystal chandelier in the shape of a tiger’s skull. One could also mention Danae (2008), which recalls the golden rain of Zeus, or Corail or (2010), which is inspired by marine life. Similarly playful and decorative motifs can be found in the series of pouffes and cushions TATO TATTOO (2008-). Other forms of seating, such as Flirt (2007) and Blow Up (2007), play with moods, colours and shapes, while the chair Valentina C (2006) combines glamour and fashion.

FABRICA
Next Cabane

Next Cabane is a project by Fabrica, a “creativity think tank”, initiated by Benetton and located in Treviso, Italy, which invites young artists and designers from all over the world to develop innovative projects and to explore new directions in different disciplines - from design, music and film to photography, publishing and the Internet. In this “laboratory for applied creativity”, housed in a 17th-century villa, renovated by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando, these young creators, accompanied by leading figures in art and communication, are encouraged to transgress boundaries of these disciplines by developing experimental projects, taking into account their economical, social and ecological dimensions. The aim of Fabrica is to open new perspectives on the world of tomorrow.
