24 May AMARIST IN VENICE DESIGN 2018
VENICE DESIGN is the largest International Design exhibition running alongside La Biennale di Venezia. From May 26th to November 25th 2018, the third consecutive edition of VENICE DESIGN will again be hosted by the European Cultural Centre.
In the historical location of Palazzo Michiel, facing the Grand Canal, international Designers are curated to express themselves and to propose a singular reflexion on materialising, shaping and transforming our daily environment. Design will show its ongoing connection between body, object and space challenging the visitors to interact with pieces and immersive installations.
Amarist Studio has been invited to exhibit the sculpture lights “Friendly Fire“. Composed of 3 mortar grenades, exploring the beauty in the shape and the design of a mortar shell, with the intention to redefine its meaning and purpose. The piece is made in Alabaster stone and brass plated in 24-Karat Gold, accurately reproducing the 80mm mortar shell grenade, one of the most commonly used projectiles in the last century.
