In the center of MOD Design exhibition ended Maestri, which brings together the work of 24 famous masters of Italian design, had the greatest influence on modern interior art. Within two months, visitors can see a variety of furniture, lighting fixtures and other interior elements created by the classics of design. Visited this exhibition and we, which resulted in a series of posts commentaries, the first of which you are now reading. So, what you can enjoy by visiting the exhibition Maestri. Plastic from classic Selection of exhibits for the exhibition was carried out as follows: those were taken of the model are crucial for modern design. Of course, in this case it was impossible to do without Anna Castelli was going to play that has become a trendsetter in design direction, the so-called rational furniture. Everything created by Anna Castelli, is intended to streamline and optimize the environment. It is principally used in creating their models only plastic, considering him the most interesting of all prosaic materials. Plastic allows for all and extremely convenient in use, and storage of items, that is certainly, according to the Distance, the main advantage. Modern designer is an ethical responsibility to the mass consumer, and his work must be different rationality. Things are meant to regulate the life, to make it more convenient and comfortable. Anna Castelli was first used when creating interior and furniture principles sbornosti (chests and storage containers) and inserting (chairs, tables). The minimum and maximum value, this rule became the main slogan of the Queen of Italian design.Philosophy is fun. Bruno Munari always treated their creativity with a little irony that did not prevent him to make a major contribution to modern design. Funny furniture and interior design was created by this designer, and to him we owe the so-called furniture with humor. After all, Munari created the famous uncomfortable chair for very short visits, which is simply impossible to sit a long time (it is recommended to submit unwanted guests). In addition, Bruno has created such popular items as the lamp-stocking; ashtray-cube; watch Free Tempo Libero, whose owners are free to choose the time; as well as many other fun items. Design Bruno Munari is not subject to rational — it is a riot of imagination, which returns to the interior of the immediacy of the child's perception. Commonplace objects, which was touched Bruno, became the bright artifacts of fun and gained unusual furniture deep philosophical meaning.Usually too neobychnykh unique to the type of artists that have had a huge influence on modern design, but it is virtually not known to the public, owned by Enzo Mari. Master Italian furniture and industrial design, artist, theorist, "the wise and the intelligent designer, Enzo Mari has created more than 1,700 different projects. Many of them have not been implemented in mass production, because it was too unusual for the market. But each work Maestro is admired by his colleagues design skills and gives a new impetus for its development. The most famous creation of Marie — fully collapsible chair, which is sold in a small package and original calendar-the semaphore.Thing — this is the message of the designer’s Important property for any thing — the ability to cause an emotional reaction, and thus become agents of my ideas. The furniture is not only performs some utilitarian function, it can soothe or cheer, energize or clear your mind, to reassure or encourage". So about his work spoke Ettore Sottsass — an outstanding designer, artist, architect, theorist and philosopher of design culture. currently Sottsass is a symbol of the "Italian alternatives" in design. He finally "animated" faceless utilitarian objects, turning them into a means of communication, the communication and the identity of the owners. Every object created by Ettore, became sensual artifact of modern human civilization.Dynamics ravnovelikimi designer, about which we will tell you — Franco Albini. He was known not only as a designer but also as an architect and restorer. With his participation had been restored many Renaissance palaces located in Europe. The famous Museum Tesoro di San Lorenzo in Genoa — also the work of Franco. In the design Albini was a supporter of dynamic equilibrium. “the Constant search for new in a well-known — the main task of the designer’ — following this rule, throughout his life Franco Albini never ceased to experiment and create new models have long been familiar things. In the 50-ies of the last century, his chairs, tables and sun loungers surprised everyone with its ease and originality of design. Albini experiment exposes all the components and key details in the construction of furniture. Point relief and support, texture and structure of materials, the number of legs and interchangeability of parts — it's all been questioned and redefined. It Albini created a table with two supports; turned one of the legs of the table Cicognino in the handle, using which, you can easily move the object in space; invented the folding mechanism in the chair Fiorenza; and also invented many other things, without which the modern design is simply unthinkable.Love and hatred of technology Michele De Luca, in addition to a practical design, is also widely known for his theoretical works, wrote that simultaneously loves and hates technologies that convert individual art in the industry. "the industry has standardized the world over, and John DOE by choice products ’, says Michele, — that she can't forgive. But, at the same time, I understand the need for industrial production, because the craftsman will not be able to do a million instances of the same things that I want to buy many people". He knows what he's talking about, his most famous invention — lamp Tolomeo — became the absolute bestseller of industrial design, and broke all sales records.\nBut along with mass products, Michele De Luca thrives in an experimental model of the original series, produced in a limited edition for true connoisseurs of unique design. A striking example of this products brand Produzione Privata, which since 1990 are new works of the Maestro. His individual works created in order to awaken the imagination of the people, enriching it with new images and ideas. Future Segodnya contrast to De Luke, artist, and designer, Joe Colombo wholeheartedly believe in the endless possibilities of new technologies. During his short life (41 years) Colombo could, as they say, to think of all the furniture again. He was ahead of its time, at least, thirty years, and models that he created in the 60-ies of the last century, is now actively used by almost all people of the planet. Joe Colombo was an ardent fan fiction and in his works embodied futuristic images. It was created in 1963 the first home robot Mini Kitchen, which combines almost all electrical appliances. Later, Joe, based on the idea of Le Corbusier's machine housing, is designing a new type of house is far from the classical scheme. This idea of the living mechanized house was translated into reality only at the beginning of the third Millennium, thirty years after the death of its Creator. The main idea of Colombo was that it is time to radically change not only the typology of home furnishings, but also to create an entirely new type of housing. Brothers-didactically and pier Giacomo Castiglione adhered to in his work, the main principle of Dada rethinking things ready, or cult of the found object. In this case, the usual elements are carried in a completely new context, which preserves the rational approach, but enriches all artwork is ironic content. This is especially clearly embodied in the model of the bench Mezzadro, which was created by brothers-in-collages Duchamp. Was taken tin seat from an agricultural tractor of the early XX century, painted in bright red color and mounted on a wooden beam. But if Duchamp in his work tried to find something sacred in the ordinary items, Achille and pier Giacomo Castiglione treated his models easier, initially positioning them as ordinary goods of mass production. The principle of rethinking things ready for the brothers was primarily a tool with which they found new ideas, and could not comprehend the philosophical content. So was born the famous lamp Arco by car (her brothers design developed by studying the structure of a conventional street lamp), lamp Tojo (Hey automotive headlamp), taccia designed table lamp (forms required the lighthouse). Modest geniatini the Citterio never claimed the highest ideas and did not make loud statements. He consciously uses his talent in industrial production, and operates in full compliance with the requirements of the public and the market, preferring to work with simple and cheap materials, using new technological developments. From other masters of design depth knowledge of current trends and attentive to serial production. Not influenced by any of the so-called new design, nor postmodernism, in turn, Citterio has seriously affected the dominant trends in modern art. Many manufacturers create their products imitated his models, and often just copy them. The most famous creation of Antonio Citterio: chairs T-Chair, a small table on wheels Battista, chair Dolly. These objects are created outside of time, is not subject to the vagaries of fashion and changing trends. This is the result of the ongoing search for the ideal proportions, lines and volumes that have been found and implemented in these models.
