Maurizio Galante - Tal Lancman
Giorgio Linea e Officine Pianigiani
VGO Associates is an “en plein air” Gallery based in South of France, its goal is to interact differently with the objects and spaces that populate our daily lives. Devoted to art and spirituality, the gallery fosters new collaborative practices proposing a new form of animism to give life to functional sculptures.
In 2003 designer Maurizio Galante teamed up with trend forecast analyst and designer Tal Lancman, to form their creative studio. Their crossover vision transverses the different design disciplines, from fashion to furniture, interiors, lights, food, architecture and gardening. The process results in a multi-faceted concept, with a subtle balance between the pragmatic and the irrational. A retrospective exhibition “Transversal Design" was presented at Saint Etienne's museum of art and industry, Triennale Design museum in Milan, Sao Paulo Design Week, Beijing Design Week, and MUDAM Museum of Modern Art Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg.
