Venini e Peter Marino

Nuova collaborazione con il celebre architetto e nuova collezione di vasi in edizione limitata Black Belt
Data Pubblicazione: 28 November 2017

Venini ribadisce ancora una volta la propria capacità di interpretare il pensiero estetico dei più importanti creativi internazionali, invitando l’architetto Peter Marino a progettare una collezione in edizione limitata, Black Belt, una linea di vasi che unisce passato e presente, tradizione e design nell’utilizzo delle tecniche artigianali di lavorazione del vetro di Murano.

La nuova collezione si definisce in geometrie apparentemente semplici, declinate in quattro forme: ovale, quadro, triangolo e otto. Ogni elemento è un armonico gioco di contrasti fra la trasparenza del vetro, con le sue sfumature appena accennate delle tonalità rosa, verde e tè, e le fasce in colore nero che avvolgono i vasi in decori lineari unici.

La collezione è in edizione limitata a 349 opere per colore e dimensione.

La straordinaria abilità dei maestri di Venini è ancora una volta al servizio della migliore creatività e si rivela in alcune delle tecniche estremamente complesse che hanno permesso la creazione di Black Belt.

I colori delicati, avvolti da colate di vetro trasparente, sono il risultato dell’antica tecnica a sbruffo, abbinata a quella del sommerso: una presenza cromatica leggera ed effimera sembra galleggiare tra gli strati di vetro. 

Poi, in un terzo passaggio, le fasce di vetro in colore nero, come firma grafica di Peter Marino, vengono applicate a caldo sulla superficie dell’opera. I decori a fasce, che si integrano nella forma grazie al calore, rimangono distinti e compatti, creando un forte contrasto visivo.

La bellezza drammatica che accompagna lo stile di Marino viene plasmata per dar vita alla collezione Black Belt.

Venini and Peter Marino

A new collaboration with the famous architect and the new Black Belt collection of limited-edition vases
Data Pubblicazione:

Venini again demonstrates its ability to interpret the ideas of important international creative talents, inviting the architect Peter Marino to design a limited-edition collection, Black Belt, of vases that combine past and present, tradition and design by using the crafts techniques of Murano glass.

The new collection features four geometric forms: oval, square, triangle and figure eight. Each piece embodies harmonious contrasts between the transparency of glass, with subtle pink, green and tea tones, and bands of black that wrap the vases with linear patterns.

The vases are limited editions of 349 pieces per color and size.

Casa UD

A residential solution in Val d’Aosta at an altitude of 1800 meters, requiring no heating thanks to the use of completely natural materials

Project by the studio Tiziana Monterisi Architetto
Data Pubblicazione: 28 November 2017

Tiziana Monterisi Architetto creates Casa UD in Chamois at an altitude of 1816 meters, built over an old ruin dating back to 1834. Using 100% natural avant-garde solutions to reduce environmental impact to a minimum, the studio has made a totally passive house without sacrificing refinement in the design.

For example, thanks to the insulating properties of rice straw inserted in the framework, the building requires no heating or air conditioning: also during the winter, Casa UD keeps its interior at a mild, comfortable temperature.

Humidity is regulated in a natural way by the internal stucco made of raw earth, with natural ventilation.

The building exploits natural sunlight and ventilation; a photovoltaic system captures solar energy as the main source for the production of electricity.

The wooden surfaces (floors, internal doors) have been treated with natural oils, while the masonry surfaces have been completed inside with raw earth and vegetable-based paints.

To guarantee perfect thermal insulation, between the house and the retaining wall cellular glass has been placed, using a material that is 99% recycled and recyclable.

Casa UD is the recent winner of the Premio Sostenibilità 2017 in the category Renovation/Restoration.

30 years of the Juliette Chair

A limited edition and a multidisciplinary project to celebrate the birthday of one of the most representative models of Baleri Italia, designed by Hannes Wettstein
Data Pubblicazione: 27 November 2017

Baleri Italia, for the 30th anniversary of the Juliette Chair by Hannes Wettstein, pays tribute to this design icon Made in Italy with a limited edition of 100 pieces in the champagne color, numbered and signed by the designer.

The edition can already be ordered from Baleri Italia dealers.

At the same time, the company presents the project Juliette meets artists, coordinated by Aldo Parisotto in collaboration with the gallery Studio La Città in Verona.

To encourage constructive interaction between three creative sectors – art, photography and design – the project involves three contemporary artists who share a taste for ongoing chromatic research, who selected the superleggera in their preferred hue, and were then immortalized by three different photographers.

The three artists approach color in different ways. Luigi Carboni transforms it into thick, dense matter on the surface of the canvas; Jacob Hashimoto applies it as a characteristic feature of his mobiles; Herbert Hamak concentrates on its purity, revealed by skillful use of light filtered by resin in his monochrome solids.

Data Pubblicazione: 27 November 2017

On the 8th floor of a building in Kiev, a cylindrical tower with a spectacular view of the city, Mur Mur is an original restaurant designed by the studio Loft Buro – founded by Oleg Volosovsky – to recreate the atmosphere of a metropolitan loft.

The stylistic choices range through Mexican, central Asian, Indochinese and Japanese influences, alongside typically European features.

The restaurant is like a comfortable apartment, as well as a place in which to enjoy art.

Besides the restaurant with its open kitchen and bar, Mur Mur has a zone with a piano and a DJ console.

Loft Buro is a studio founded in Kiev in 2001, which now employs over 15 architects and designers as well as 5 engineers working on innovative and original projects of architecture and design.

Creativity and ambition inspire and guide Elena Logvynets and Oleg Volosovsky, the leaders of the Loft Buro team, in the design of spaces, restaurants and situations that reflect the inner worlds of their inhabitants.
