The prestigious Rossana Orlandi Gallery made its debut at the Lake Como Design Festival, where it presented the art-design project LEWIT, a monumental bed sculpture that arose from a creative symbiosis between Draga & Aurel and eclectic architect Giuliano dell’Uva, in collaboration with the Italian textile company Somma1867.
The event took place in the fireplace room (Sala del Camino) of Villa Olmo, one of the lake’s most charming historical dwellings. LEWIT was showcased as a free-standing furnishing item designed and made as a three-dimensional artwork. It merged contemporary taste and aesthetics with explicit references to the artistic avant-garde of the 1960s and 70s.
Draga & Aurel rethink and reinvent the furniture, giving them a new contemporary flair. Combining their skills and past experience in fashion, textiles, art and design, they apply the best and most appropriate creative craftsmanship techniques – such as screen printing, resin covering and brass casting – to bring a second life to the object while preserving its heritage.
Following is a selection of the latest creations, some of which were exclusively unveiled during Milan Design Week at the Rossana Orlandi Gallery in Milan.
