Life Given A Shape

Apr 30 2012, 10:00 am 0 Marco Russo

Another nice discovery from Salone Satellite in Milan was definitely the stand of LGAS, the young Italian studio founded in 2011 by designer Guido Garotti and Sehr Khan. Delicious and friendly people who showed us with passion some of the works, exploring with simplicity the stories and meanings behind their products, accessories and furniture made ​​from high quality materials and local technologies, that can promote the local cultural heritage. Among these projects, four really impressed us, such as: “My Best Wishes For A Fertile Wedding“, two decorative elements, ceramic containers born as a wedding gift, a celebration of fertility and sexuality explored at the borders of culture and iconic forms of food. “Sapientia – Magna Sapientia“, a fictional support for cognitive growth, a metaphorical representation of the ring of conjunction between heaven and earth. A ladder that can carry out the common purpose for which it was designed or used as a characteristic bookcase, made of ​​Limba (an African sustainable wood with particular dark veins). “Tawila“, the result of a research on the tea ceremony in the cultures of North Africa, a ceramic coffee table with a circular shape that encourages sharing and social interaction, acting as a hub for social interaction. And finally, “Tulir“, a series of wooden cutting boards for food service, inspired by the traditional craft shapes in Romagna, the region of origin of the designer.
