Lago Maggiore Casalinghi and Ghigos Ideas officially present the new collection “Apparecchiare la città”. The collection is not realized by a unique company, but by a wide network of production firms that represent one of the most historical Italian district production lines. Changing the usual prospective and opening up to experimentation, these companies valorize their specific manufacturing culture, putting them into a common project, as testimonial of the intelligence and the creativity of Made in Italy.
The exhibition will show to the visitor a strange city of objects, a landscape “at hand”, tables as inhabited islands, that welcomes elevations with some iconic monument-objects (or are they miniature buildings?) in a continuous interplay between different scales and cross-references between architecture and design, between urban and domestic, expositive and culinary aspects.
The point of view is what changes reality and makes us experience a surreal walk through objects, which lose their purely functional value and discover themselves as “something else”: they are parts of an apparently paradoxical world, and become casket of our emotions . Not yet consumers, not just owners, we find ourselves custodians of simulacra that define a new urban skyline.
