Milanese duo Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto of Studiopepe delve into the evolving dynamics of public and home spaces in their latest project, “Desiderio.” This artistic exploration is captured in a thought-provoking video manifesto, reflecting on our shifting connections with objects.
In the wake of societal changes, Desiderio, meaning “desire” in Latin, becomes the focal point. Studiopepe interprets it as a profound concept, emphasizing a mental dimension linked to passionate searching. The name Desiderio, derived from “absence” and “star,” encapsulates the essence of longing—a sentiment echoing the nuances of 2020.
The term Desiderio serves as the nucleus of an “imaginary constellation,” featuring Studiopepe’s latest projects, including cc-tapis mats, Baxter lamps, and Gallotti e Radice furniture. Breaking away from physical presentations, the duo embraces the virtual space to showcase their creations.
Studiopepe elaborates, “Desiderio embodies our soul’s drive, keeping us curious in the fervent and deeply human pursuit of harmony and beauty.” The project encompasses formal and material research, delving into signs and language, characteristic of their design vision, now manifested in an imaginary architectural realm.
Experience the passionate and human study of harmony and beauty with Studiopepe’s Desiderio. Explore a virtual landscape where changing spaces and the essence of desire converge to redefine our relationship with objects. Join the Milanese duo on a journey beyond the physical, into the realms of imagination and creative exploration.
