ANIMAlità is the sum of the free interpretation of ten young designers, united by a fantastic vein, and the virtuosity of Bosa, ceramic artisan company, of which many have been able to appreciate the vision and the excellence of workmanship.
Bosa in collaboration with Triennale Design Museum presented last February the exhibition ANIMAlità, curated by Silvana Annichiarico, coordinated by Evelina Bazzo/Umbrella and Damiano Gullì/Triennale Design Museum, and showcased these “odd” objects at the Salone del Mobile in Milano.
The odd objects, figment of ten visionary designers called to interpret the theme of animality, were created thanks to the craftsmanship of Bosa, a Venetian ceramic laboratory, internationally recognized since 1976 that creates objects and furnishings entirely handmade characterized by colors and exclusive finishes, such as precious metals and glazes.
The unseen works are designed by Sam Baron, Matteo Cibic, GamFratesi, Jaime Hayon, Sebastian Herkner, Lanzavecchia + Wai, Minale-Maeda, Elena Salmistraro, Ionna Vautrin and Nika Zupanc.
The vocation of Bosa for experimentation and research in the fields of art and design, is reconfirmed with the original project ANIMAlità, that fits perfectly in the line of cultural research, pursued in recent years by Silvana Annichiarico, become a reflection to the reintroduction of animality, physical and objectual, at home.
