Vanni’s Adriano series is the result
of a collaboration with the artist brothers Adriano.
Vanni’s home town of Turin, Italy,
was nominated World Design Capital for 2008. So to join in the spirit of the
events, Vanni decided to explore to relationship between art and design, by
commissioning the artist brothers Adriano, to design a concept range.
The result is a stunning small
collection of visually pure, yet pleasantly challenging frames. Based on the
basic premise of manipulating simple geometric shapes and applying a combination
of contrasting colours and subtle tonal differences, the original vision and
idea is achieved beautifully in these design sculptures.
The Adriano range will be exhibited
at 100% DESIGN in London
in late September.
