Tord Boontje 2009 for Bisazza- 04.20.09

tord0.jpg On emails that make me way too excited and even closer to pushing BUY on a flight to milan… Tord Boontje + Bisazza + Veuve Clicquot? If you’re in milan this week, this sounds like one definitely to check out (and please send pics!!!)

So what is it? Digital Memories - “When I look at mosaic patterns, I am immediately reminded of a pixelated image, a digital image. We use digital images from cameras and video to capture moments of life, these become our memories. The collection of mosaic for Bisazza is based on the idea to use images that trigger memories when you look at them. A pattern of sunlight filtering through the leaves of trees can remind you of a nice summer day, a picnic in the park or daydreaming in the back of a car and watching the landscape going by. These patterns become personalized memories for each viewer, we all share these memories. I applied some of these patterns, Summer Trees, Dark Waters and Night Vision, to a coffee table and two sizes commode. The pieces have a large surface area for the mosaic to work optimally and an innovative sliding mechanism that opens the intricate volume inside.”

I wonder how long it takes to make one of those with so many little tiles. The ending result is wonderful though.
