The International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza, in correspondence with two of the most important fairs dedicated to ceramics in Italy (Cersaie in Bologna and Tecnargilla in Rimini) is showcasing the work of four major ceramic companies presenting surfaces designed by international designers.
They are CEDIT – Ceramiche d’Italia of the Florim Group with the project signed by Elena Salmistraro, Iris Ceramica Group with surfaces designed by Guillermo Mariotto and told through a visual art exhibition, Lea Ceramiche with Ferruccio Laviani, and Mutina with Konstantin Grcic and Nathalie Du Pasquier.
CEDIT – Ceramiche d’Italia of the Florim Group, presents “Chimera,” the refined textures of Elena Salmistraro “The Chimera collection is a bit like a book that has four different chapters: I wanted to differentiate these graphic motifs and have four totally different stories.”
LEA Ceramiche offers the refined work of Ferruccio Laviani “Color and material are the basis of my work, and in Masterpiece there is a perfect balance between two elements: concrete and sown become architectural surfaces that give a unique and personal identity to each individual project.”
MUTINA presents two projects, the first “daisy tiles” by Nathalie Du Pasquier, the designer who through painting has taken unexpected paths, a constantly evolving work marked by color and lightness. The second project is by designer Konstantin Grcic, who with DIN expresses work that demonstrates an analytical and rational approach, marked by simplicity because as he argues “simplicity is a way to get to the depth of something, to its roots.”
IRIS CERAMICA GROUP presents “Bodies of Light,” an original concept that interprets through photography and film art the dualism between statuesque matter and lightness that characterizes the Collection Light designed by stylist and designer Guillermo Mariotto: a project that takes the narrative of ceramics beyond the boundaries of architecture, interweaving it with the languages of art.
Opening: Sept. 16, 6 p.m.
Supported by Sacmi and Cersaie.
Under the patronage of Mic – Ministry of Culture, Region Emilia Romagna, Municipality of Faenza, Union of Romagna Faentina
