TLmag 37: L’âge d’or / State of Gold, guest-edited by Marco Sammicheli, launched at the end of May 2022. A third launch event will be taking place on July 5 in Capri in collaboration with NOMAD. Here we present the editorials by Lise Coirier, editor-in-chief of TLmag, and Marco Sammicheli to give some insight into this exciting new issue of TLmag.
TLmag spoke with Roca Group’s Corporate Marketing and Design Director, Marc Viardot, in Milan, at the launch of Influence, a Mediterranean-inspired installation that features a new product line and embodies the Spanish brand’s renewed interest in heritage, while showing off their talent for innovation and accessibility.
In 2021, Chiara Alessi spoke with Milan-based designer, Marialaura Irvine, about her use of embroidery as both an art form and creative process, and her role in Studio Irvine. Currently, Marialaura just completed an interiors project at the Circulo Filologico, in Milan, and is preparing to debut a new collection of rugs with Spazio Nobile at NOMAD Capri, in July. More on that to come.
For our S/S 2021 issue: TLmag35: Tactile, Textile, Texture, Costanza Rinaldi wrote about the groundbreaking career of Maria Lai, a Sardinian born artist who used poetry and art as means to better understand life and its complexities, particularly as an independent woman of her generation.
Through innovative techniques with wood and metal, Pia Maria Raeder is crafting a distinctive body of work in the collectible design world. Her almost anthropomorphic collections capture a sense of nature’s mystery, its hidden creatures or glimmering stardust, while exuding luxury and the beauty of the handmade.
Le Stanze del Vetro presents FontanaArte: House of Glass, a retrospective exhibition curated by Christian Larsen, which examines the contributions of the famous Milanese company in the years between 1932-1996. The exhibition is on view through July 31, 2022.
As part of their installation, Earth, Glass, Fire, at Collectible 2022, Spazio Nobile presented a selection of new glass vessels by contemporary Czech artist, Josef Divin. His distinctive process of hand blowing and hand cutting glass creates enigmatic and captivating works of art.
For the fifth edition of Collectible Design Fair, Spazio Nobile presents a vibrant installation dedicated to the ‘fire arts’, showcasing works in ceramic and glass, as well as wood and paper by emerging and established artists.
