Whomade Editions 2009

I am glad to update you a bit about the great work of the young brand Whomade. Driven by the energy and passion of italian designers Edoardo Perri and Dario Riva, Whomade Editions carries out an authentic vision of the object as meeting crossroad between cultures that dialogue and create together by giving a creative and original contribution to the craft sector for the conception and making of products with a high ethic and aesthetic value. Whomade signs 5 new collections in limited edition, presented in preview at the coming Macef 2009: Acqua Alta, Blister, Impronta, Cabarè and Equilibrista. The exclusive Whomade collections of products with a high added human value get even more precious by those special editions in which the prestige of noble materials and the attention for refined details blend with the care for artisanal processes and skillful techniques. Everyday objects, design complements proposing an unusual reading of forms and materials form the crafts’and manufacturing Italian tradition. By the collaboration with murano furnace SimoneCenedese the Acqua Alta and Equilibrista collections are born, as well as the milan wood workshop of Bevilacqua together with master silversmith Bonomi have realized the Cabarè line of trays. The Blister and Impronta series catch up the experience of Bazzigaluppi’s firm and draws liberally on the old warehouse of moulds, to give new life to aluminium blocks, though reaffirming their unique nature as matrixes. BLISTER / aluminium tray from milled block A series of trays from the recycling of old industrial moulds used for the production of food containers, realized from Bazzigaluppi’s firm from Vigevano.
ACQUA ALTA / Murano blown glass vase The venetian maritime theme is played by a series of glass vases that has been hand-blown by furnace SimoneCenedese in Murano island. IMPRONTA / vase from aluminium casted mould Aluminium moulds for the making of shoe soles become a series of original vases. In collaboration with mechanical workshop of Chiara Bazzigaluppi.
EQUILIBRISTA / vase in iron and Murano glass A collection of hand-brown glass vases, made by furnace SimoneCenedese from Murano, that rest upon a structure in metal rod on which iron bars hold poised.
CABARĂˆ / wooden tray and silver - steel cutlery A series of trays in different sizes whose bases in wood are hiding handles under the semblance of left aside cutlery. Made by carpenter Franco Bevilacqua and master silversmith Daniele Bonomi.
