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.

‘…quel genio di Arturo!’

The famous tale of Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp inspires the object’s shape while modern technology creates its magic effects. Made of a black carbon fiber epoxy resin, the lamp turns on/ off/ dims at the lightest touch. Conceived as table lamp, wall or suspension, this fantasy object is dedicated – on his specific request - to Arturo Brachetti, new genius of the lamp and internationally well-known, extraordinary quick-change actor. For him the object is called ‘…quel genio di Arturo!’. Suitable to create atmosphere in private or public spaces, as hotels, restaurants, SPA and yacht interiors

LED lighting contained within the panels will illuminate during nighttime that expresses the different perception

Creativity laboratory in which is carried out a research using unusual materials, developing art-design projects. As result of the research with acetic silicone born MU’trans project.

The objects created look like static but they become tender, elastic and mobile if touched; they start to vibrate and wave unexpectedly. They interact with the user stiring up contrasting feelings. Every object comes with a progressive serial number certificate.

Perilous

I innovate in moulded glass to create sculptures and architectural features. Colour and form language are the elemental aesthetic considerations in all work I generate, and the ability to tailor make a palette range for each project provides unique outcomes. Permanent transparency and saturation of hue coupled with compressive strength provides an ideal structural material that is characteristically activated by light and space. In researching this work I am fascinated by geometric patterns in three dimensional structures and see great potential applications in contemporary architecture

Wink

This ephemeral architecture is the common ground between architecture and art. This unique work, exhibited at the Kobe Biennial 2013 in Japan, has been designed to please the eye and meet easy-assembly requirements, zipping any of it's components to the next one making a perfect art piece that changes as you walk inside of it. The relationship between the structure itself and the visitors is quite close, since anyone can open or close any of its parts as if it was a window. The intention of this work is to show anyone how architecture can be also, lightweight and mobile.
