Milano Design Week 2019

9 - 14 aprile @ Teatro Arsenale

Via CESARE CORRENTI 11

9-13 April | 11:00AM-8:00PM
14 April | 11:00AM-5:00PM

Laufen presents a special installation in collaboration with the visionary studio Snarkitecture. The conceptual and experiential itinerary will connect two precise points: the origin, represented by the material, and the arrival point that is the finished product. From clay to ceramic, from powdered earth to liquid slip, all the way to the silky polish of SaphirKeramik: the installation "photographs" that various stages of the material, without filters, without alteration, in an essential perspective.

Snarkitecture

Snarkitecture is a New York-based collaborative design practice established to investigate the boundaries between disciplines. The name is drawn from Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of The Snark, a poem describing the “impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature.” In its search for the unknown, Snarkitecture creates work that includes large-scale projects, installations and objects.

The term innovation has many meanings, and all of them become fundamental for us at Laufen. Beyond our extensive focus on a technological plane, we believe it is important to grow along a path of multi-level research, interaction with stimulating creative counterparts, cultural influence open to a wide spectrum of the world of design and the arts. Collaborating with eclectic personalities and visionary artists like Snarkitecture gives us an opportunity to look at our history, our experience in a new perspective, to live it through new codes of interpretation, with constant reference to our true identity.
— Alberto Magrans, Managing Director at Laufen
