The second edition of EDIT Napoli, the fair dedicated exclusively to editorial and author design, ended a few days ago. Artribune has selected from over seventy exhibitors, 7 objects considered the best, one of which is our new product “A signurina” signed by the designer Antonio Aricò.
“ […] EDIT Napoli was born in fact, with a strong curatorial but at the same time commercial connotation, “ because there is a product market, as well as its own culture” says Domitilla Dardi, “ wanting to give voice to author design and territoriality with respect to globalization ”. We have traced our path between the stands in seven stages, on the edge of curiosity and discovery, collecting very different experiences but united by the care that distinguishes them.
The vernacular archetype of the country chair was redesigned by Aricò and created by Myop, a Sicilian family company known throughout the world for its eclectic approach to craftsmanship and design. A Signurina is a design manifesto that aims at a radical choice: to return to authenticity, concreteness and sustainability. The chair is made of natural or hand-painted olive ash, the seat is woven with corn leaf, natural rope or custom trekking ropes, the three-dimensional “wavy” wooden elements give the chair the designer’s “new gesture”. The table top reproduces a Sicilian Maxi Majolica and is made of hand carved and glazed lava stone. ”
