A consumer's diary

Big Furniture Like a Cave This is the award-winning project won the Grand Prize of Art in Container International Competition.

organica

ORGANICA is Fabrizio´s philosophical portrayal of any organic system in which all parts are interconnected to give existence. The design was based on the complexity of the human body and the human pre-conception. The viewer is lead into a sublime journey. The doorway to this trip are two massive wooden forms that are perceived as lungs, then an aluminum shaft with connectors that resembles a spine. The viewer can find twisted rods that look like arteries, a shape that can be interpreted as an organ and the finale is a beautiful template glass, strong but fragile, just like the human skin.
