Dino Gavina "Lampi di design"

23 September - 26 December 2010

Dino Gavina. Lampi di design, curated by Elena Brigi and Daniele Vincenzi, follows Dino Gavina’s intellectual and entrepreneurial adventure, focusing on the artists, designers and architects that have shared his path through the art and design world. Among them: Lucio Fontana, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Sebastian Matta, the Castiglioni brothers, Marcel Breuer, Carlo and Tobia Scarpa, Kazuhide Takahama, Luigi Caccia Dominioni. This path is also interpreted by the sequence of companies that, in many formats and in various periods, have received Gavina’s imprint: Gavina, Simon International, Flos, Sirrah, Simongavina Paradisoterrestre.

The show develops through various sections devoted to fundamental themes and people in Dino Gavina’s work; the progression isn’t strictly chronological, focusing instead on his relationship with the authors who have granted him his primary position within the evolution of Italian postwar design. Each of Gavina’s interlocutors becomes a key figure to understand his world and, in particular, the wider scope of his creative expressions beside architecture and design.

The innovative power and multi-disciplinary approach of its protagonist fully grant Dino Gavina. Lampi di design a place within MAMbo’s 2010 program, focused on the contaminations between visual arts, cinema, design, music and performing arts, valorizing its role within the Manifattura delle Arti cultural district.

The whole duration of the show is accompanied by the Gavina.NAVIGA program, a wide-ranging series of open talks and conferences with Gavina’s friends and collaborators, witnessing the themes and issues he never ceased to promote and discuss.

The project has also benefited extraordinarily from the support of Sandra and Silvia Gavina.
