CITYNG

A COLLABORATION WITH SAVIO FIRMINO


 

 

Sitting on the city, in the city, and with the city: the new line of monumental seats, speaks about sharing and belonging.

​

 

The CITYNG line is composed of 16 chairs, representing the symbolic monuments of the world.

THE CHAIR TURNS INTO A SYMBOLIC OBJECT, WHICH ENCLOSES THE CITY AND ITS VALUES.

 

THE CITYNG PROJECT IS A CELEBRATION OF THE WORLD: IT STARTED FROM THE DREAM OF SEEING DIFFERENT REALITIES, CULTURES AND AESTHETICS AS A RESULT OF THE COEXISTENCE OF HARMONIOUS CONCEPTS AROUND A TABLE.

 

CITYNG IS A JOURNEY BETWEEN WEST AND EAST, BETWEEN TRADITION AND MODERNITY; THE CHAIRS ARE HANDCRAFTED IN SOLID WOOD, BUT ALSO DECORATED WITH A NUMERICAL CONTROL PANTOGRAPH: AS REGARDS THE CRAFTSMANSHIP OF THE FUTURE, I STRONGLY BELIEVE IT WILL HAVE TO BE ABLE TO COMBINE THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE PAST WITH THE TECHNOLOGIES OF THE PRESENT, AS WELL AS HUMANITY WILL HAVE TO FIND A BALANCE BETWEEN THE CELEBRATION OF NATIONAL DIVERSITY AND A NECESSARY INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUE.
