Like the Mount Analogue, it departs just get closer. But if you just want to glimpse the outline then you have to follow a trend in non-Euclidean. The Daumal explorers were traveling on a boat called Impossible.

Architects can go back to being UTOPISTI?

In a time when no one believes they can change the world you may need to redefine the meaning of the word. Besides pragmatism and technology, beyond disillusionment, beyond the irresistible haven of their discipline as the only sign of witness [and welfare], I think instead to a vanguard of UTOPIA absolutely attainable. The belief we can do it refines the tools. It's the old story of the journey: the most important of the trail experience that the achievement of the goal. Along the way it defines the language understood as convergence of differentiated components. This is the real thrust of utopia: a virtually SEARCHBetter still if you reach beyond disciplinary boundaries. Better yet, open, sensitive, original [original]. Therefore: unsettling.

Roberto Monte


In the form of genesis

Items in gestation. Conche, shelves, lugs, holes.

"The call to the form is a vital need As the nature of the art ", this is the beginning from which part of the project: the ability of the material to be shaped.

In the genesis of the form it is a design work consists of 12 stone-object projects just blanks and all handmade, therefore unique. Born from a strong partnership with local craftsman Alfredo Case and Master in stone processing.

Items for "nutshell", about to be - now basins, now plans holes. deliberately unfinished forms, let in gestation.

Object-self-produced projects including made using methods and techniques that soaziano from done with his own hands in the wisdom of local artisans, from industrially produced using traditional methods with the use of new technologies. The common denominator of the limited series and small production.

Roberto Monte PPROACH planning to self-produced design

The design, the self-production and limited series feature a decisive collections.

In process - not only active but also ideational - artisans and creatives from different personalities - sometimes designers, sometimes artists, actors or performers - which run on a common path of research.

Dialogue with them, open and of course friendship, spurs of relational work accents and active resources that support to grow.

Behind the naturalness of a pleasing shape applied to the project, a history of the study of the processes and materials, experimental and illumination applied to the facets of things.

The objects are kept intentionally to the limit, on a boundary line for a specific purpose that wants to go beyond the functional object and an end in itself ... to guess or foresee a "wholeness" albeit temporary.

EDRA PRESENTS "PACK" Francesco Binfarè

The sofa is a generous size, with a movable backrest anthropomorphic. The designer, Francesco Binfarè, infuses his creations a great observation skills, insight and poetry: "Now the story and the thing come together, there are no cages way to reveal. Everything became clear, sincere and disarming. This year there is a sofa that looks like a room and a chair that looks. The poetry, the tale, the beauty will offer no justification. "

Il divano è composto da una seduta morbida realizzata in piuma e Gellyfoam che rappresenta una banchisa ghiacciata. La forma è irregolare ma equivalente all’ingombro di un angolo retto come quello composto da un divano a due posti e uno a tre, con un tavolino nel mezzo. Appoggiato sopra, un grande ORSO sdraiato su un fianco che funge da schienale. Le dimensioni sono tre metri e settanta centimetri per due e cinquanta.

It is a contemporary landscape that tells our times of climate change and melting of glaciers, but also human feelings that accompany them: loneliness but also innocence, happiness, unconsciousness and ability to enjoy the little things, like the warm sun on the back of ' bear or the nascent northern lights the night version. It's a domestic landscape exciting.

Il tessuto di PACK è esclusivo, creato solo per questo progetto, come successe con molti altri progetti di Edra. In questo caso, la texture è costruita a somiglianza della banchisa, con la brina e i diversi strati del ghiaccio. L’orso è invece morbido, accogliente, realizzato con una preziosa pelliccia ecologica. È un simbolo di affettività: invita ad abbracciarlo e a lasciarsi coccolare dalla sua morbidezza, suggerendo la metafora dell’orsacchiotto che i bambini abbracciano a letto prima d’addormentarsi. Ha una sagoma zavorrata all’interno e una base rifinita in pelle, così da rimanere fermo sul piano d’appoggio. Esiste in due versioni: giorno e notte, bianco e nero. “L’idea di base è l’eros”, racconta Francesco Binfarè, “perchè l’eros non è solo sessualità. L’eros diurno è solare, è vitalità. L’eros notturno è mistero, sogno, intimità.”

An extremely modern sofa, born today but destined to last: a feature of all Edra products.

A sofa that can be inserted easily in any style because he was conceived keeping in mind that universality of use that is, for Edra, a fundamental principle, applied to all its products.
