The original sketch of the Paravento Balla, designed by Giacomo Balla in 1917, fully represents the revolutionary principles of the Futurist movement for which he was a leading advocate.‎

Bright colours make a come back
Giacomo Balla's sketch, published for the first  time  by  Maurizio  Fagiolo  dell'Arco  in  the  book  "Balla: futurist reconstruction of the universe" (Rome, 1968), is a tempera and pencil on  paper, made  on  the  back of two  identical  photographs  that  portray  a man still unknown today.‎  The  two maquettes  are marked  by the stamp "Boccioni’s fist", sometimes used by Balla to  sign  his  works  in  place  of  the  "Futurba lla " signature.‎ Alongside the drawing are indications on the use of colour and possible chromatic combinations.‎

Artistic expression for the home
Today, in collaboration with the heirs of Giacomo Balla, Cassina brings this brightly coloured accessory back to life to divide and complete different areas of the home with  a great artistic touch.‎ The Paravento Balla is composed of  three  panels  of  different  heights  and  widths  in  honeycomb  wood joined together with satin brass hinges.‎ The Cassina branded hinges have been developed by carefully interpreting the original design, thanks to the study carried out by the Cassina Research and Development Centre, thus allowing  the piece to open and  move in both directions , as well as making it aesthetically more elegant.‎

The screen-printed decoration on both sides  is  available in  two versions:  with  an orange  background  in yellow  and green, recalling  the  colours   of  Balla's  sketch,  and with  a white  background   in  blue  and green, a completely different  colour  range that adheres to the spirit of free interpretation  encouraged  by  the words  of the artist's daughter.‎
Like all products in the Cassina  I Maestri Collection,  each piece  bears the  logo  and  author’s  signature  as  well as the progressive number that corresponds to their identity card.‎

Materials
honeycomb wood, satin brass hinges.‎
