Bokja Bug.   Taking an iconic “people’s car and clothing it with a fantastically colorful assemblage of handmade fabrics, tapestries and humorous car stickers, you get the Bokja Bug. Originally created for the opening of the teams Beirut store, it is not merely a decorative item, the car is the embodiment of the Bokja’s philosophy and mission. Just as Bokja transforms with its furniture creations, the design studio repurposed this classic and basic frame, applying its craftsmen’s skills and colors and designs of it myriad fabric collection, to create a fun object that surprises, to say the least.

The architects and designers.  Andrea Trimarchi  and Simone Farresin of the Studio Formafantasma are based in  Eindhoven in The Netherlands.

Autarky.Autarcky” is an installation by Studio Formafantasma that proposes an autonomous way of producing goods and outlines a hypothetical scenario where a community is embracing a serene and self inflicted embargo where nature is personally cultivated, harvested and processed, to feed and make tools to serve human necessities. In the installation, a collection of functional and durable vessels and lamps, naturally desiccated or low temperature baked, are produced with a bio-material composed of 70% flour, 20% agricultural waste, and 10% natural limestone.

 The architects and designers.  Artist, Emanuela Crotti of ManuFatti.

ManuFatti – a detail. A detail of one of Emanuela Crotti’s tables. Crotti has always been experimenting with arts from Figurativism and Abstractism to Zen and Minimalism. Her latest passion is resin, with which she creates tables and furniture where a collection of objects and retrouvailles sink under a deep layer of resin like in a album of memories.

The architects and designers. Architect and designer Aldo Cibic.

Little Nature.   Little Nature is the name of the four miniature landscapes shown at the Spazio Rossana Orlandi designed by Aldo Cibic with Cristiano Urban and made by De Castelli. “There is always a pleasure, almost infantile, when I see realized these objects in which a small but intense piece of nature is inserted into a landscape in miniature, designed and constructed rationally. It is interesting the type of feeling that this composition produces because it is as if it creates a suspension, a tension, a fleeting reflection that for a moment carries you away with it.” Explained Cibic. 

Seen at the Spazio Rossana Orlandi.  Mario Bellini.
