We teamed up with WallpaperSTORE* for the creation of its concept pop-up shop within DESIGN VE. Exhibition (Biennale Design Walks through Venice). The environment is a homage to Venice and its ‘Acqua Alta’ apocalyptic recurrent syndrome, when waters from the Canals & Laguna invade streets and campo around town, due to high tides. The STORE* has been serviced by local Venetian students architects giving hints of secret Venezia and Biennale walks around town.
Overlapping oxidations applied on brass, copper and iron – born from De Castelli’s exclusive research and ongoing study – create watercolors stratified effects that remind us of the waves that string on the shore; time and nature leave unique signs that can be reproduced by metals to tell stories that are reflected on the furniture.
