The internationally acclaimed designer and architect, India Mahdavi is set to present a unique exhibition at the exclusive Homo Faber event that will be dedicated to European craftsmanship, from 14-30 September at Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice. The Queen of color will present Imaginary Architecture at the Michelangelo Foundation-organized event. Now, Wall Mirrors will explore the spaces that the designer will create, so take a look.
With fine craftsmanship in mind, India Mahdavi has applied her vivid imagination to narrate a personal story of her relationship with the world of master artisans. As a result, during this imperative event, the highly skilled creator will be presenting two ingenious spaces that showcase the passion and excellence of artisans as well as the visionary designer.
In Henry Rosseau Forever, India Mahdavi pays homage to the French post-impressionist painter. To create this beautiful winter garden, the designer alongside a series of artisans in Europe used the natural material, rattan to develop a cluster of pieces, including handmade chairs, masks and intricate rattan marquetry panels.
Mahdavi tells a story of how such a noble and traditional material can give form to new and sophisticated shapes. The exhibit will be further enhanced by a black and white mosaic floor, bespoke mirrors and dramatic lighting created especially for this exhibit by Italian master craftsmen.
Merry-Go-Round will be a contemporary space in the shape of a rotunda. It will feature Mahdavi’s characteristic use of bold colours. The creator pays tribute to the exhibit’s beautiful setting in Venice by using Italian fabrics such as velvet and satin and designing a typically vibrant colour scheme that evokes the sea. With its intricate handmade details, this space demonstrates the importance of the human hand in contemporary design, showing how fine craftsmanship gives added value to interiors in a way in which machines simply cannot.
During Homo Faber, visitors will have the chance to commune with designers and artisans and see live showcases, making it a complete design experience. Make sure to visit the event and regard India Mahdavi’s exceptional exhibition.
