Domestic Monuments, Disé
Visual Identity and Illustrations, Palazzo Biscari, Catania, 2019
This is the story of a collection of furniture pieces, signed by international designers and made by artisans from Catania, which talks about monuments and explains why, if monuments serve to remember, to build a bridge between past and future, perhaps not they are neither a question of size nor of position. The squares can be replaced by the nooks and crannies of the houses, obligatory places of passage where you can throw an eye. The house itself is the place for a series of private but collective rituals, and it is to these that DiSé dedicates its Domestic Monuments collection. Eight design pieces entrusted to eight different designers and each dedicated to one of the gestures and objects that identify the living space. The result is a heterogeneous collection, ranging from the minimal lines of OSΔOOS to the exuberant ones of Guillermo Santomà, from the simple materials of Germans Ermičs to the rich and varied ones of Leopold Bianchini.
