This tropical floral pillow is getting a little more love on here today. With so many rich hues, it transitions nicely from summer to fall. Thank you @nataliebooneart for ordering a few of these beauties to remind me how much I love this fabric!
“DIALOGO. Carlo Scarpa and Ettore Sottsass presented by Charles Zana”, Venice, 2017⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A show of early Ettore Sottsass ceramics unites two titans of 20th-century design.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Negozio Olivetti, once a showroom for the company’s typewriters and calculators, designed by its erstwhile art director Carlo Scarpa in 1957-58, and now a museum run by FAI (the Italian Environmental Foundation), is an architectural treat. It’s one that the French architect and design-art collector Charles Zana never tires of visiting.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was while caressing the concrete balustrades of the interior during 2015’s Venice Art Biennale that Zana struck on the idea of introducing the space to a new crowd – the Biennale art-trippers – by combining it with the work of Ettore Sottsass, another of his design heroes (and another one-time Olivetti art director, who created the brand’s first computer, alongside its Valentine typewriter). The subject of the four-month exhibition this year would not be Sottsass’ Memphis masterpieces of the 1980s, but his early work with ceramic, when the painter manqué, who forewent his first love of art to follow his father into architecture, started applying his painterly eye to terracotta, mixing colour and decoration with structure and form in an original way.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @memphis_milano @memphismilanodesign @ettore_sottsass #memphisgroup#popart @lacma @dusendusen #italiandesign#galleryofphotographyporto#art#oporto#oportocity @miguel_bombarda #80s#memphisdesign#artobject#totem#italianart#artcolllectors#artcollection#colorfuldecor#80sdesign#80saesthetic
I recently explored the First Nations art exhibition at the Royal Ontario Museum and was awestruck by the complexity and beauty of the objects exposed: porcupine quillwork, moose hair embroidery, garments meticulously decorated with tiny beads... Just imagine the patience and perseverence required to achieve such art! The beauty of handmade objects stems not only from colors and texture but also from the knowledge that they were painstakingly crafted by hand. This is how I peceive the beauty of craftsmanship. ✳ Link to my upholstered creations: www.Etsy.ca/shop/ateliermgranger✳
Sunday means sitting down at this dining room table with a perfect dinner. JK...I tossed some meat and veggies in the crock pot and I’m hoping it lasts all week 🤣!!! And when it’s done cooking we’ll probably eat it while standing at our kitchen island! I’m still determined to eat a meal in our dining room while the fall decor is out though...maybe next week. I hurt my neck this week and definitely overdid it yesterday. I’m spending today resting, and taking Advil! Have a fabulous Sunday friends!
«C'est comme si on était sur le toit du monde!» disait ma grand-mère en apercevant la vue infinie au dessus des collines des Îles-de-la-Madeleine en 2011. J'ai voulu exprimer par cette oeuvre la capacité d'un être adulte de connecter avec son coeur d'enfant pour y contempler la beauté du monde. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ «Naïve» 24x36 ~collage de papiers magazines sur toile ~✨disponible ✨ DM pour plus d’informations 💌
