The 2013 edition of the Salone del Mobile sees the renewal of the Triennale Design Museum, which reveals once again its dynamic nature, capable of changing itself over and over again and offering its visitors different engaging fresh paths. The sixth edition of the Triennale Design Museum is dedicated to a set of attitudes typical of Italian design: the curiosity for what is unknown, the ability to assimilate what is new and the eagerness to approach different styles and cultures. “The influence syndrome” is typical in the design world: you can affect anyone´s inventiveness in an unlimited number of ways. To convey the complexity of this phenomenon, the sixth edition of the museum is organized into three parts, corresponding to three exhibition areas and three historical moments since World War II:
– Part one: the foundation of Italian Design
– Part two: the creative destructive force
– Part three: the new context
The third part presents the way new design brands relate to the “Made in Italy”. The story is told through installations: 12 showcases that represent Italian design as trendsetter in this world. These showcases are interpreted by 12 designers who are among the best witnesses to the design evolution that has been taking place all over the globe. One of the main protagonists is Danese in collaboration with designer Matali Crasset, who gives expression to those project values and experiences that he has been sharing with Danese over the years.
REBOOTS SPACE SENSITIVE UPDATE by Matali Crasset for Danese
A symbolic vision of Danese as a reconfiguration ritual. Essential human presence in terms of expression and interaction. A paper tape draws the shape of the contours of men and are illuminated from the inside. A representation of men and life embodied by the light that comes from within and its environment (the space around expresses the context and the fundamental values of the company). A still image of a moment is a known metaphor that men have evoked from time to time, their living together and a habitat to human scale. The minimum of the material to show the essential and find the meaning of their actions. Men are given priority once again. Human nature is seen as the key to find the right balance within human interactions and natural systems. Men have to apply technology and use all their potential and creativity as well as be ready to face the challenges of today’s society. The design stems from a combination of social innovation, technology and new designs and practices for a responsible development of the project.
