The six mentors that have chosen the Rising Talents of Maison et Objet. Eponymous in their own way, the six influential figures have picked anonymous but promising young designers to get the world of interior design going around!
Federica Biasi nominated by Andrea Branzi
In the words of the mentor “I chose Federica Biasi for her quintessential design and poetic ideas, which deliver subtle, yet very particular messages,” The mentor of this Rising Talent Italy, a 2011 graduate of the Istituto Europeo di Design, Federica Biasi’s work is largely inspired by the simple lines of Northern European design.
Federico Peri nominated by Luca Nichetto
Federico Peri has already collaborated with companies like FontanaArte, and has his limited-edition pieces displayed at the Milan-based Nilufar Gallery. At Maison et Objet Paris, the designer will be presenting his limited-edition products. One of the reasons why this designer was chosen by Luca Nichetto was the inspirations behind his designs: “I’ve noticed in his work a natural inclination to design products as a way to create an experience through materials or the environment produced by the objects themselves,” Italian designer Luca Nichetto commented. “It is this type of completely instinctual process that makes Federico particularly interesting on the Italian scene. But it’s also what gives him immense potential abroad. I am especially curious to see how his approach will evolve as he shifts towards more industrial processes. The result will most likely be very moving.”
Marco Lavit Nicora nominated by Rosita Missoni
In this Paris trade fair, Marco Lavit will be presenting his Venezia collection: the Reconvexo table and Atem, a modular sofa, all produced exclusively by Milan-based Nilufar Gallery among other designs. The reasons why the fashion designer Rosita Missoni chose this incredible designer were simple, “Marco Lavit Nicora is a young talent, heir to a long line of Italian designers who have placed function at the core of their practice and who have learned to use only the best materials and artisans our country has to offer to achieve that vision. I was especially moved by how light his pieces look, despite the fact that they are deeply anchored in classical design.”
Antonio Facco nominated by Giulio Cappellini
“Despite his young age, Antonio Facco is very attentive to changes in contemporary design and to communication. His projects are largely inspired by his observations of the younger generations, of their expectations and their behaviours. He has also developed a keen interest in materials and production methods, whether industrial or artisanal. His projects are always surprised because they are the perfect synthesis of his thought process and sensitive nature. I believe Antonio Facco is truly one of the most promising representatives of the new design trends in Italy.” says Giulio Cappellini, Art Director of one of the most eponymous Italian brand about Antonio Facco. The young designer has collaborated with major international architects, brands and designers.
Kensaku Oshiro nominated by Piero Lissoni
Completing the gap between cultures, the architect and designer Piero Lissoni, that has already worked with Kensaku Oshiro for eight years, says that the works of the designer are, “the gap between the Japanese and Western perspectives on simplicity/complexity.”. The rising talent has already worked with prestigious brands such as Gan, Glas Italia, Kristalia, Ligne Roset, Poltrona Frau, Viccarbe and Zanotta. At Maison et Objet 2018, Kensaku Oshiro will be presenting some of his most meaningful pieces.
Guglielmo Poletti nominated by Rossana Orlandi
For this interior design show, Guglielmo Poletti will be presenting different pieces from his Equilibrium series. The designer Rossana Orlandi is delighted to have chosen this designer as her protege. In her own words, “I’m also happy to have chosen Guglielmo because I see in him a proactive and dynamic mind, someone who thrives in fluid situations, who is constantly living in anticipation of the next projects to come. And I believe these qualities are crucial to finding a path that allows you to keep growing with a very personal vision.”
