Salone del Mobile 2014
Rossana Orlandi “Untold” Exhibition
Museo Bagatti Valsecchi / Milano Italy
Salone del Mobile for Rossana Orlandi/Museo Bagatti Valsecchi
Marcus and Monica Tremonto will be showing a series of adapted objects with intricately patterned custom circuits. Objects only become connected and alive “on” when placed on an array of unique conductive surfaces.
In parallel to the majority of the work from the studio Pelle Condoctivo further explores and broadens the possibilities of the function of surface; altering what a surface can do and become through light..
As reflected in previous works; either it be a flat surface that emits light or light embedded into a surface..it is the perception of what the surface is transformed into that is the continuing work of the studio.
further collection details:
Pelle Conductivo “Conductive Skin”
-we wanted the circuits of “Pelle Conductivo”, to be as intricate, and difficult to make, as traditional couture bead work, embroidery, inlay or joinery
-to treat the surface of the material as an interactive environment,
-objects that provide additional non purposeful functions, as we too adapt to function, will inevitably connect to us more intimately, as they will become as diverse as we are.
-an important objective for us in the concept of “pelle conductivo” is to add beauty as artists, without altering the previous work of the designer and master craftsman, to become part of the conversation.
-each skin consists of a unique hand fabricated electrical circuit, which allows the LED to be placed anywhere on the face of the skin.
We first explored the possibilities of this type of conductivity in 2011 with Luce Magnetica for Galleria Spazio Rossana Orlandi for the Salone del Mobile.
