Here I followed a design method by my former teacher Alessandro Mendini: to develop a design by interpreting the aesthetic view by an artist you find interesting.
I was always fascinated by the quiet power of Giorgio Morandi´s depictions of ceramic vessels. Morandi´s vessels are depicted in groups, yet they are solitary, quiet small monuments. Morandi depicts his objects as if they are trapped in their own form: they are existentialist.
In this interpretation, the vessels became brightly colored, inviting to be touched, moved, arranged and stacked on top of each other: they are communicative, changeable, and playful.
The 3d printing process enabled the creation of a surface structure which scatters light so that these objects respond in interesting ways to their surrounding: they are matte in diffuse light, but glossy in direct light.
