The game of mirrors and broken lines – that transformed the top-floor terrace of the iconic building designed by Piero Portaluppi (Buccellati’s headquarters) in a futuristic style during Milan Design Week 2022 – is now the protagonist of Art Basel Miami Beach 2022.
The installation created by Stefano Boeri Interiors as the setting for the exhibition “Galateo. A Journey into Conviviality” dedicated to the art of the table through Buccellati’s collections, has been revisited for Art Basel in an indoor format in the context of the EDITION Hotel in Miami. The use of reflecting surfaces and broken shapes emphasize the Gala Dinner table as the symbol par excellence of conviviality, the focus of the “Galateo” exhibition.
In the network of reflections and cross-references, the different environments communicate with each other, increasing the perception of spatiality and transmitting to the diner an illusory but pleasant dilatation of the surrounding reality. The guest fully feels part and parcel of the context which thus becomes new, experiential and flexible.
A work of synthesis and at the same time of enhancement of silverware collection that find their place in an innovative display and modular system: displays and surfaces that change shapes and proportions to adapt and reconfigure in extreme simplicity and flexibility. Elements that, regardless of the setting – whether artistic, cultural or commercial – create value and therefore offer a new experience on every occasion.
