This concept of everlasting relevance gave birth to Giardino Botanico. Created by the British-Italian trio of Artefatto Design Studio, the collection aims to provide “something that is not just new and exciting but something that will remain elegant for years to come,” explain the studio co-founders Sacha Andraos, Lorenzo Scisciani and Salvatore Morales.
“Nature is something that has always been around us; it was not man-made nor was it bought, it has not been imposed upon us. It just exists around us, there to be accepted and admired, hopefully forever. Giardino Botanico should feel like it has always been here, almost naturally occurring and everlasting”.
The collection is the result of influences from what are and were the dogmas and stylistic principles of the old Italian design era, paired with the bold characteristics of English culture. Not a small ask for Artefatto Design Studio, which has been responsible for the artistic direction of Secolo XXI.
You will find Daisy, Lily, Ivy, Jasmine and Holly, the members of the Giardino Botanico family, spouting up all over the city. Come and see the whole collection at the Aesthetic Visions exhibition in Via Palermo 5 or at Galleria Rossana Orlandi in Via Matteo Bandello 14/16. Keep your eyes peeled as there will also be a few popping up in restaurants, cafes, and shops.
