Designed by Dainelli Studio, Faces is a small self-produced collection of decorative sculptures, tailor-made for Artemest, an Italian e-commerce platform which offers handcrafted, luxury design items.
The project finds inspiration in cubist portrait paintings, where faces appear geometrically disassembled, superimposed, amalgamating space, time and multiple points of view.
Faces and profiles are a recurring theme in the aesthetic approach adopted by Dainelli Studio, a pattern that often reemerges in the form of objects and decorative elements.
In the Faces collection this motif is portrayed using various types of marble and stone, deconstructed -as happens with cubist imagery- and reassembled to create new combinations of materials and forms. The result is a series of precious, thought-through objects which make a strong statement.
