A few weeks ago I mentioned my trip to campania on the occasion of Edit Naples, the new fair dedicated to editorial design, which has opened this year in the impressive complex of San Domenico Maggiore in Naples. The location and the few selected designers present have not disappointed my expectations, despite the heat and the lack of wi-fi (very important in the show), I really enjoyed a couple of hours to Edit.
To welcome visitors, in the courtyard of San Domenico, the corner of the Pastry shop Scaturchio, designed by Giuliano Andrea Dell’uva, a thin cage of iron closed in part from tissues of Livio de Simone, and in part from counters made of hand-painted ceramics of Francesco De Maio.
The first floor of the exhibition, artists and Italian and international designers have presented creations that are exclusive to Edit Naples.
One of my favorites? The lamp, from the ground or suspended in the wicker and wood of beech , Nayef Francis,crafted by hand in Lebanon, available in 3 different sizes.
Very nice also the lamps hanging lamp with wicker of Bottega Weaving, and I think that for each lamp are machined more than 100 m of wicker by the skillful hands of the masters of Mogliano veneto.
You call PAN999 the pots the most beautiful I have ever seen, born from the encounter between the silver and iron, designed by Tobia Scarpa for San Lorenzo srl. The pure silver and the outer part iron. The silver has bactericidal and is the best conductor of heat and transmits evenly without wasting energy. Produced entirely in Italy and completely recyclable.
Of Andrea Anastasio, the series of carpets Through, pierced by large piercings are a way of exorcising the damage most feared for the preservation of a carpet: the hole by moth.
Totem is an interesting prototype of Gae Avitabile for NARCASA. A library can be transformed: forms blue scroll on the items in red wood, which, interlocking between them form the entire structure. Also in this case, there is the element of wicker, a constant to Edit Naples.
I got back to Edit Emanuela Sala and his PiattoUnico: dishes hand-made by Italian potters reinterpreted with images and collages are always different. Emanuela Napoli has also presented at HOME, a series of tiles with 3 different pattern. An example of that? Polka dots, kitchen utensils and authentic food, anchovies and garlic, all in a single tile. But perhaps PiattoUnico deserves a separate post, what do you say?
The beautiful “the break table lamp” by Toni Grilo for Marm, a heavy material such as marble, you fold like a sheet becoming thin sheets when the lamp is off. Take a look at the page Instagram of Toni Grilo to see the other projects submitted to Edit Naples, all very interesting.
I will leave you with more photos from the fair, myself to show others, and talk about some of the designers that I’ve discovered, later.
