In January 2017 Calori & Maillard took part to Art City, an event linked to Arte Fiera, with the solo show “Causerie – conversation” supported by Istituzione Bologna Musei | MAMbo – Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna in collaboration with Paradisoterrestre. The exhibition took place at former Gavina shop located in via Altabella 23 in Bologna designed by Carlo Scarpa.
The work Altabella 23 – Portare acqua al mare (Bring water to the sea), a limited edition Murano glass vase designed by female duo exclusively for Paradisoterrestre on the occasion of the exhibition, is a tribute to the Venetian architect and to its project for Gavina. The shape proposes the architectural element with a double circle, recurrent both in the openings of the façade and in the details of one of the columns inside. The available colours – emerald green, ochre yellow, cobalt blue – recall the tones chosen by Scarpa within the space.
Murano glass is the denomination which characterizes the artistic glass manufactured in Italy, that is why these vases tribute to Scarpa are blown specifically by Murano Master Glassblower Simone Cenedese.
Limited edition of 10 for each colour.
