Zanetto @ I-Made - Saatchi Gallery, London Design Festival 2019
Zanetto among the Italian design brands selected by I-Made.
London Design Festival 2019. In this year edition is taking place the first exhibition solely dedicated to Italian design. I-MADE will highlight exceptional design, quality and inspiration from Italy. Housed in Chelsea’s iconic Saatchi Gallery, the exhibition will not only present Italian innovation and craftsmanship but draw on the passion and traditions of iconic Italian brands and designers.
For this exceptional occasion, we decided to overcome ourselves and to astonish you with an Italian artist collaboration. We will present, indeed, an art installation showing off not only our well known craftsmanship abilities but it will also take you to a new creative dimension...
The Arca project by Enrico Zanetto and Alessandro Rinaldi is a common and poetic dream of beauty that came to life thanks to the challenge captured by the best metal artisans working at the historic and prestigious Zanetto laboratory. The idea at the center of the project is that of the airship. Symbol of insane madness. The last dinosaur at the gates of a new era of modernity. A bridge between eras and worlds. An expression of art, design and craftsmanship. Something huge and graceful, just like a dream. A dream of beauty.
