LIVING FASHION Home Design

BRIEF This project was about urban residences. First of all, I had to choose the user and then analyse its behaviours and needs to identify functionalities, ergonomics and materials to define the concept. In the house there has to be some collective and individual spaces, related to our user. The main goal was to satisfy its expectations in every detail, starting with the structure itself, and then the furnitures and the finishes, still respecting the construction’s rules. It was important to be coherent with the style during the entire development.

She is very famous as a stylist for her attention to details, as the accurate manifacturing of her products, the choice of big volumes and voluminous skirts.

CONCEPT This home design project wanted to represent her style while responding to our client’s needs. It is a three level house. On the first one there is the living room, the kitchen, a little toilet and a dining room which can be switched with a fashion lab, depending on he stylist’s needs. The second floor is composed by a bedroom, a walk-in closet and a bathroom, and the last floor is designed as a rooftop where the user can recive her hosts. All the fornitures respect her style, and the finishes, too. But the most fascinating characteristic of all, is the huge white structure that totally embraces the house’s interiors. It presents a surface full of different little squared shapes, to mention the lace texture, so it filters the light from the windows, creating beautiful reflection effects.

BRIEF We should let us be inspired by “Una stanza per un uomo” by Albini (1939), to project an innovative, extra-small residence (3 x 3 x 3 m) where we had to decline new living oportunities through the use of different materials, depending on the landscape chosen. We had to build plans, prospects, sections and a 3D model to show the application of the material.

MA Generally, it means emptiness, space, gap, break, interruption, room, rest, time but also opening. Referring to the space, it means the space itself, its dimensions, and the space between two things. Referring to the time, it means the time itself, the break between two moments, the rythim and the time screening. The Iwanami dictionary defines it as “the break that has to exist between two consequent events�. An unfinished work can be discovered just by the ones that are able to imagine it as if was done, becoming part of it.

WABI-SABI The term comes from “wabi” that means “simplicity”, calmness, dignity; and “sabi”, that means “inner peace”. It refers to the temporariness,of things, the vane, imperfect and incomplete beauty, different from the lasting, spectacular and monumental one. It’s something that give “peaceful melancholy”. “Nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect”, R.R. Powell.

ITAISHO The term means “asymmetry”, and its will is to exalt those works of art that are balanced without the need of the geometrical parameters. It is possible to see beauty in what is incomplete, spontaneous, and random. This different point of view generates a different pleasure, deeper than the the one that comes by observing and feeling the rational and abstract world: lighter, subtler. The nature itself is full of beauty and harmonic links that are well balanced even if asymmetric. It is a dynamic beauty that attracts and envolves the ones around it. “Symmetry is art killer”. E. Delacroix

SHIBUI This terms defines a kind of beauty, underestimate and unknown in West countries, that apreciate smoothness, proportion and perfection. It concretely means: strenght, austerity, hidden beauty, beauty-to-know, to understand, even if it just needs a momento to get it. It is an ancient beauty, rough, irregular, rich of shades and changeable. Once you find it, it is simple, odd, cracked, imperfect, so that everyone can identify with it. It is alive, in motion, it helps us to appreciate the flow of time and the nature’s truth.

YUGEN It means something obscure, and describes the charm of dark things, those things we can’t see the limits and the details. It is something unfathomable, misterious and unintelligible. Art spread yugen when we caught a flash in it, a flash that shows us the secrets of the Universe.

ABSTRACT

BRIEF We were asked to project a scenographic installation that would represent our idea of empathy. We were supposed to consider the dancer’s performance inside the installation and their interaction with it. The installation should be like a real dynamic scenography, easy to be interpreted by the dancers. Creation of personalized spaces, places dedicated to the body and its poetic actions, sets the place to glorify the artistic gesture. In every installation, the dancer will express through movements that face the light. Space and materials, become scenography, architecture, light, art, movement, involving the visitor’s feelings.

CLIENT IED and DanceHaus will be working together for the second time. They will plan an amazing project where choreographies, the artistic gesture and the dancer’s bodies, are going to melt up with the project’s structures. This will create a new form of expression through their original intepretation.

CONCEPT Empathy is something we have inside. It is indefinite, intertwined, it extracts when we meet someone who we are in harmony with, and it is expressed through the eyes. There are two different ways to look at someone’s: as if you see the eyes as part of the face, or as if you see the eyes as they were the face itself. The second way is one of the most scary things, because the eyes are the truth. They are white like the nothing where life floats, the colorful iris, until they dive inside the black pupil The more the sight is deep, the more the empthy is powerful, and stronger will be the attraction. Magnetism, contact, desire, fusion and erotism. The intrigue of the mind, the body’s relations, the total feeling, complete, complicit...
