Luca Cipelletti’s “XYZ” at Giustini / Stagetti, Rome

Giustini / Stagetti, Rome, is exhibiting a new show of “Architectonic Furniture Made to Measure,” titled “XYZ” by Luca Cipelletti through March 1, 2019. The solo exhibition presents works by the architect, museologist and designer Luca Cipelletti (born Milan, 1973), who was also the founder of the AR.CH.IT. Studio. 

In the past two decades, the studio started engaging in an interdisciplinary activity that would emphasize each of its project’s cultural qualities that would include the close study of design details, which shapes up as the founding element of each work.

“The project ‘XYZ’ presented at the 2018 Salone del Mobile, Milan, emanated from the designer’s close study of themes around the subtraction of matter, of perspective and the spectator’s viewpoint. These are all principles that are proper to architecture and are here rearticulated on a divergent scale to bring into being a clan of furnishings, tables and desks. These pieces are the result of a shared design intention: to draw attention to the focal point of each piece — the juncture at which the spatial coordinates ‘XYZ’ converge to apparently erase the received three-dimensional characteristics of material elements: weight, structure and volume. This is achieved thanks to the creation of a new structural tie that is both internal and invisible: it permits large surfaces, over 3 meters long, to be supported,” says the gallery.

Each of the exhibited pieces are lent the appearance of being only designed in two dimensions — the first being the solid materiality of the surfaces that creates the ultra-thin blade-like structures and the supporting legs of these appear to change according to each possible variant point of observation.

“Alongside all the different table types and desks that make up the collection, a choice of lamps selected and curated by Cipelletti, are also on exhibition: these are by among the leading Italian designers active in the period spanning the 1940s through 1960s, and include Gino Sarfatti and Franco Albini. This display points to an array of correspondences between the pure geometry and technical research of the modern era, and the rigorous and experimental, yet essential, language of the contemporary author,” the gallery adds.
