COLLAGE | Rectangular mirror
Wall-mounted framed mirror
The common thread between art and design is now a distinctive sign of antoniolupi’s work. More than fusion, we would refer to two different experiences mixed together to achieve a common aim: an univocal experience of beauty that becomes part of our daily life.
Luca Galofaro, Architect and Teacher, has focused his attention on relationships between representation, urban architecture and image.
An area of antoniolupi showroom La Pietra e il Fuoco in Stabbia is currently hosting an Exhibition/Architecture Drawing Collection curated by Galofaro himself: an important step forward in the company’s growth strategy.
Now Galofaro ‘influences’ with his vision some antoniolupi products and the collaboration between him and Andrea Lupi is becoming even closer: some Architecture Drawings of the exhibition have been chosen to be used on antoniolupi mirrors collection.
Transforming some of these works in real furniture objects was a natural consequence of the reflection shared by Galofaro and Andrea Lupi.
The idea consists of transferring an image used to think of architecture to an item of everyday life, building a bridge between imagination, which dominates art, and life, normally dominated by the function of the object.
The collage technique is based on overlapping fragments. The image comes from the stratification of images of memory.
Mirrors are made overlapping printed glass plates, creating tridimensional collages. The last mirrored layer established a relationship with the observer, who becomes part of the image itself.
An intrusion of real world into imagination.
