UN PIZZO Demonstration
UN Pizzo is an all-female design studio based in the Cantú region of northern Italy. Specializing in "knot works", they will be demonstrating their craft live on site. They employ traditional bobbin lace-making techniques, but blow up the scale using rope to create stunning knotted surfaces. Their demonstration will result in the completion of two limited edition works for Italian design house Living Divani. You can get a preview of their technique at the New Inside World exhibition website.
New Inside World: Light and Form explores how the cutting edge of interior design reflects, informs, and transforms our concept of the future and our lifestyle. There is no place where designed objects impact our lives greater, than in the home. This intimate relationship with products reveals much about our needs, our values, our desires, and our ambition. The works presented in this exhibition are the result of both a careful study of the past, and an intense gaze towards what is to come.
The exhibition itself is a collaborative effort celebrating the “new inside world”, the contemporary interior landscape created by the basic elements of sight and touch: light and material. Focusing on the components that construct interior spaces, the presentation includes furniture, lighting, and home accessories that set the new inside world apart from the “old inside world”. At the same time, there is an emphasis on the evolutionary connection between the old and the new, recognizing that distinct lines of separation are difficult to define, if possible at all. Past, present, and future coexist in unique ambience inside the exhibition site: the Arch Street Meeting House. This National Historic Landmark is located in the heart of Old City, Philadelphia, one of the oldest neighborhoods in the United States, and the centerpiece of the city’s designation as a World Heritage Site.
