Giorgetti
THE MYSTERY OF FORM
There is a place where objects speak to us, communicating in a language in the same way as music, imparting life, an existential narrative. A symbolic statement, a secret disseminated in the form, which makes things truly palpable, manifest in the dexterity that shapes the wood and creates the form to make it what it is. The very nature of things creates the concept through developing tensions and energy, balanced by form. A narrative of life and emotions permeates the piece, just as in music, enmeshed in the mystery, captured but remaining concealed. Beauty.
From this concept emanates the “Mystery of the Form” by Fabrizio Campanelli, a composition created to celebrate Giorgetti’s 120th anniversary. Emerging from wood, a vibrating material, and resonating through arcs and electronic echoes, the harps, piano and synthesizer create a concept in the present that encompasses past and future.

GIORGETTI RE-EDITS TWO MATRIX DESIGNS

Re-examining the past is the starting point for reflecting on tomorrow. It is with this in mind that Giorgetti has reviewed its expertise, identifying the creative tumult of the 1980s as one of the most significant periods in its production and the entire design sector. To emphasise this conviction, Giorgetti delved into its archives and unearthed two visionary designs, Dry and 50250 by Matrix, a division of the company founded in 1985, to produce collections characterised by the breakthrough sculptural style and decidedly free-thinking concept. The first is a chair and armchair by Massimo Morozzi created using an interlocking technique and assembled without using any glue, which makes the chair’s 32 components completely separable. The colour palette available maximises its originality and individuality. The 50250, by Adriano and Paolo Suman, is a folding armchair with a high-tech aspect. Hinges are located in the centre of the seat and the backrest is flexible.

THE CABINET OF MEMORIES

A conceptual, highly detailed Wunderkammer, which encapsulates the history of the Company in a single piece of furniture. This is the Cabinet of Memories, an extraordinary piece designed by Chi Wing Lo to commemorate Giorgetti’s 120th anniversary. A sculpture-cabinet, 2018mm high by 2018mm wide, it is an artistic interpretation of the world of Giorgetti but also a very personal world. A collector’s item, reminiscent of an exquisite treasure chest, the maple piece features 120 compartments in a finely-balanced interplay of light and dark wood finishes, symbolically referencing past and present. Merging the meticulous, age-old art of cabinetmaking with technological experimentation, reflected in the use of carbon to confer material form to the panel surface, the Cabinet of Memories is a decorative display case that lends itself to safekeeping the most significant moments of your life. The result is a collection of memories, impressions, ideas and experiences brought to life in an extraordinary heirloom for the future. With this piece, Giorgetti chose to emphasise the importance of memories. A starting point for reflecting on what has gone before and building dreams for the future; a future where the cultural value of Italian design and the pursuit of individual wellbeing are paramount.

CORPUS GROUP OFFICES, JAKARTA

The offices of the Corpus Group are located in the heart of Jakarta’s Central Business District. Giorgetti was selected by interior designer Kezia Karin’s studio which created these sophisticated and elegant workspaces in partnership with Giorgetti Atelier, Jakarta. The Tycoon executive desk by Roberto Lazzeroni takes centre stage in the management office. In maple and Indian rosewood, with exquisite leather and metal detailing, the desk features soft lines and a distinctive geometrical design on the top. In the background, the Nea book shelving designed by Chi Wing Lo exudes lightness. Freestanding, but at the same time substantial and decorative, it is useful not only as a piece of furniture to store books or personal items but can also be used to partition rooms, giving a sense of depth with transparency. Completing the set up is the Ago small table by Carlo Colombo, with a gold Calacatta marble top, and the Denny armchairs designed by Laura Silvestrini, perfect for the reception where people can feel comfortable and relax.
