After we came back from The London Design Festival we would like to publish our recent activities and projects.

First of all we present pictures from our curated installation called "Contemporary Italian Plastic Chair?" which has been shown at Ahoj, Design! festival during the first weekend in September in Prague. We installed several contemporary plastic chairs of the recent years produced by Italian companies such as Moroso, Magis, Kartell, Plank or Driade in an empty space of the old ship. All the chairs were designed by foreign designers. For an example by Konstantin Grcic, Jasper Morrison, Marcel Wanders and many others. So we have been asking ourself if it is still Italian design or not, when the Italian classic companies hire the international creators. And what do You think about it?

We would like to thank 3DH and Konsepti for their support.

Yesterday we have launched our long-time preparing book OKOLO Mollino. In collaboration with printers from Signpek, design paper masters from Studio Činčera, friends from 3DH showroom and Fulvio Ferrari from Casa Mollino in Turin we created a decent graphic gem.

Thank You very much for the help and support as well as all friends and visitors who came yesterday and enjoy our new book.

Now available in 3DH showroom as well as another stores and museums following, the book in edition of 80 pieces tells story about Italian design genius, Carlo Mollino.



The World of Carlo Mollino

Carlo Mollino represents one of the most authentic creative figures of the last century. Mollino became a modern Renaissance man whose production embraced the entire cultural and technological world of his time thanks to his undisguised love of life and everything that our world offers. For us in OKOLO, the artist personifies a phenomenal medium of creativity and entertainment, which presents a broad spectrum of most our interests through the life of a single person.

This book and original products serve as our tribute to the master. We pay tribute to a hedonist who managed to enjoy life to the fullest, surrounded by everything he was fascinated and amused by.

The book, which presents the work of Carlo Mollino in a different way than usual, is divided into six basic chapters, i.e. six life stages and six of Mollino’s passions. Apart from a text on a specific theme, each part brings a materialized symbol of Mollino’s creativity. Thus, the reader can assemble miniature models of Mollino’s fascinating projects, implementations, and symbols related to Mollino’s life. Paper models serve to update the versatile activities of the charming Italian and place his work into a new context. Mollino will be gradually presented as a visionary designer, excellent architect, courageous race driver, fearless acrobatic pilot, style-setting skier, photographer and womanizer. Mollino is a phenomenon.

About the exhibition:

Multiplicity shows the work of five studios based in several cities across Europe. The city has long been an inspirational place for designers and the exhibition explore the influence that the city has on the work of each studio involved.

The intention is to celebrate the city and its diversity as a source of inspiration for designers. Souvenirs, the urban landscape, local traditions, flea markets, they all play a role in making the city an important resource for ideas and a laboratory for design production.

Although most manufacturing centers are located outside the city (often even outside the country) the paradox is that designers continue to live in cities. Somehow the city seems necessary to culturally stimulate designers and help them to understand human needs and behaviors.

Recently, new possibilities for small-scale production have emerged, allowing designers and everyone else to produce things using on-line platforms.
For this exhibition each studio has worked on a specific project related to the city they live in, using web based software linked to CNC, laser cutting and 3D printing machines.

The objects and its digital instructions will be available to buy on-line, or download, during the time of the exhibition at the Ponoko gallery.

In parallel to the exhibition there will be a pop-up shop with selected memorabilia about several cities by Czech collective OKOLO.

Our favorite Danish furniture brand Gubi reissued another icon of the French decoration. After Mathieu Mategot it is Jacques Adnet (1901 - 1984).

In the last years Gubi reissued many hidden modernist icons, such as Barba Corsini, Jens Quistgaard and some others. Paris decorator Jacques Adnet is next in the line. Decorator who worked mainly with leather (he worked for Hermés) developed during 1950s his own style influenced by art-deco as well as modernism. His leather mirrors which produce Gubi right now are the fine examples of his style.
