Sculptural vase composed of two volumes, obtained from the stratification of hand-trimmed modules and paper stripes. Internal part in the black tissue paper and gold leaf: a contemporary interpretation of, and a tribute to, the precious know-how of the skilful Italian paper-makers.
Michele De Lucchi
Architect, Michele De Lucchi was amongst the protagonists of radical architectural movements like Cavart, Alchymia and Memphis. He designed lamps and furnishings for the most important Italian and European companies, realised architectural projects both in Italy and around the world, and took part in exhibitions in Europe, US and Japan. He has been granted a decoration as Ufficiale della Repubblica Italiana for design and architecture, is professor at the Design Faculty of Milan’s Politecnico and a member of Accademia Nazionale di San Luca in Rome. In 2015, he designed Padiglione Zero, Expo Center and Padiglione Intesa Sanpaolo for the World Expo in Milan; in Milan he also realised the UniCredit Pavilion, the Museum of Pietà Rondanini at the Sforzesco Castle, and he followed the restoration and re-designed the layout of the Casa Manzoni Museum.
Daniele Papuli, paper artist, lives and works in Milan. He defines himself as a sculptor engaging in a dialogue with matter, space and places. He learned paper making methods during an international workshop in Berlin, in 1993, and this pivotal experience kicked off his subsequent production of sculptural, site-specific works created with different kinds of paper. By delving and removing, he achieves thinner volumes; by mincing and mixing, he turns lightweight, fragile cellulose into a denser material, until the paper leaf becomes the measuring unit for action. By experimenting and handling, Papuli establishes unending connections with sculpture, design, set design and contemporary installations.
