A Journey through the Icons of Angelo Mangiarotti
15/05/2019 - In the historic Manzoni Theatre in Milan, Agapecasa and Stellar Works presented 'Behind the Scenes', a project in which the theatre becomes a place of research and reflection.

The exhibition curated by Camilla Benedini - architect and Creative Brand Consultant of Agapecasa - tells the story of Angelo Mangiarotti’s prolific career in a journey lasting five acts, with each one dedicated to an icon of the Mangiarotti Collection. Each of the five spaces, conceived as small stages, recounts the work of the Milanese maestro through his products, the sketches of his designs, and his words printed on PVC curtains.



Forms suspended in time, essential geometric shapes in space, precious materials in nature. Angelo Mangiarotti designed not only the present but the future, transforming it with cutting-edge ideas. ‘Agaapecasa rediscovers and brings back to life some of Mangiarotti’s forgotten projects to create a collection that gains new icons by the year’, says Camilla Benedini.

Asolo table, the first stage of the installation, explores the exceptional resistance quality of stone material, utilized here as the sole material. The top with two “eyelets“ can fit two slab/uprights of the same thickness. More

For More table a few details have been updated using today's latest technology for a more precise execution while honoring the original concept: the top remains the main structural element to connect the supporting parts. Loico

Loico

Also on display is Loico, a system of cylindrical elements and shelves which fix into their slots building custom-made libraries with modular dimensions in both height and width. Eros

Eros

New shapes and sizes for the Eros series, a set of marble tables with no joints or clamps. The structural design of the Eros tables involves gravity-based embedding between the top and leg made possible by the truncated-conical section of the leg itself. This structure easily accommodates the table top locking it in a preset position. Incas

Incas

A development on the previous Eros system, the Incas range features the same structural idea in a different material, extra strong stone. It has square-shaped tops and truncated-pyramid shaped legs with a trapezoidal section, so that only the two sloping planes have to withstand stress and strain due to the weight of the top. The vertical planes instead do not in any way support the structural system. Now for the first time Incas is being produced in a new and sophisticated solid wood version, proving that every great idea can be further developed without losing any of its force or poignancy.

The show marked the debut of the Sk207 table, with a name that picks up on the original markings that Angelo Mangiarotti put on the layout of his designs. The table has a circular marble top, with different elegant finishes to choose from, and a conical base with a hyperboloid section. This part is realized in cast bronze using the unique “lost wax” technique, a process well-known in art and jewelry-making requiring a high level of craftsmanship. CAP53

In addition to this table, a new family of vases, CAP53, is also being launched using the same casting technique.
