Still life

“With Still Life designer Marco Dessí gives a comprehensive survey of projects that have been realized to date alongside a series of newly developed prototypes that will be presented to the public for the very first time. Dessí defines Still Life as a contemplative snapshot of his works, selected and grouped in light of substantive, emblematic and aesthetic contexts. Exhibition display and individual objects merge into an atmospheric picture that, both in its totality and in detail, offers an unusual and quite personal approach to Dessí’s attitude toward design. The exhibition has been designed with an eye to its location, quoting the room’s architectural elements while evoking an interior-like atmosphere that serves both as a stage and as a set of thematic brackets for the objects presented therein.”
