Showroom Paola C.
Via Solferino, 11
A mini collection of objects designed by Fabrica for Paola C.
For this year’s Milan Furniture Fair Fabrica’s designers come out to play again with a seven piece collection. Seven small/large objects full of expression and personality that are able to transform every day at the table into a unique event. Seven ideas for seven special occasions, seven “easy” yet not trivial pieces for every day of the week. Seven everyday objects that are transformed into unique pieces thanks to the “distinctive” Fabrica stamp and also to the use of materials different to those used in Paola C.’s traditional editions. For the first time silicon and resins have encroached upon ceramic, glass and stainless steel.
The collection includes two candle-holders, one in colored glass with holders made of anodized aluminum, very elegant, the other a square ceramic base that, due to a series of holes, can be used as a display to make numbers and light designs. There are also two vases, one made of silicon, soft and colorful with bas-relief decorations, the other a capsule-vase made of glass and aluminum with holes to hold a few large flowers. A colorful stylized resin tray in the shape of a frying pan. And to end with fruit, a table piece in clear resin that opens in sections and a big silicon bowl that takes different shapes according to the fruit it contains.
Every year Fabrica, as a laboratory of applied creativity, invites over fifty young artists from all over the world to develop communication projects in the areas of design, writing, photography, graphic design, music, video and interactive. Using different languages but at the same time mixing disciplines and means, Fabrica bursars can intervene on the world, on its representation and understanding.
