Is it art contaminating design or vice versa?
DES.ART is an exhibition-event that Decormarmi organized in October 2013 in occasion of the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the company and it inquires the relationship between art and design and it’s cross contamination.
A concept dichotomy identifies Decormarmi when realizing works that are suspended between art and design, both from the point of view of creativity and technical execution. The company is the abstract place where the two disciplines meet, recognize themselves and establish a dialogue made of concepts, visions that live in any items.
DES.ART focus is the exhibition of 6 inedited works in Carrara marble, created by designer Enzo Berti and the artist Tobia Berti. In these works, art and design melt together; each one absorbs the influence of the other and translates its own codes by exploring new aesthetic intentions.
In these 6 experiment projects and in the interpretation of Decormarmi, new languages emerge thanks to the mixture of the point of view of the designer and the classic sculpting techniques that are typical of the company.
