LABINAC, a design collective from Berlin, founded by MariaThereza Alves and Jimmie Durham present their designs
LABINAC comes to Italy
The design collective LABINAC, started in 2018 in Berlin by Maria Thereza Alves and Jimmie Durham, will participate in the Milano Design Week - Fuorisalone in Milan from April 8 through April 14 of this year.
Labinac will present furniture, lighting, jewelry and elements for interior design such as hand-blown glass vases.
The showroom is at the Rabotaroom on Via Sansovino 27 in Milan.
Alves and Durham traveled to Naples, Capua and Nola earlier in the year and found chestnut wood lumber hundreds of years old and broken sheets of exotic marbles. Marcello de Giudice and his family at the Nolana Foundry in Nola are producing benches and tables from these, following LABINAC’s designs.
LABINAC has commissioned design works by artists such as sculptural bracelets by Bev Koski from Thunderbay, Canada, hand-crafted porcelain lighting by Elisa Strinna from Padua, Italy and an olive wood shelf unit by Jone Kvie from Stavanger, Norway. The artist Trude Tortora of Naples has agreed to make special woven straps for some of Durham’s gold jewelry.
LABINAC is also showing from Brazil, ceramic works by Arupo Waura, a Wauja master ceramicist from Mato Grosso do Sul, hand-woven necklaces by the Huni Kuin weaver, Maria Rosilene Silva Pinheiro, stunning glass bead necklaces by the Kayapo and gourd bowls with geometric designs by the Tapirapé and Karaja.
