Italy is a country of ongoing inspiration: fashion, interior design, super cars, yachts – alongside Italian cuisine – are veritable magnets for hordes of aficionados.

The Salone del Mobile and the Milan Design Week offer an avalanche of interior design that is unsurpassed in the world.

modern living in treviso, italy

This is a ‘zero energy’ building, meaning that the total amount of energy it consumes on an annual basis is roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy created on site. Energy autonomy is guaranteed by solar and photovoltaic panels, through a powerful domotic system, innovative materials and cutting-edge construction techniques.

It was the third solo exhibition by the Spanish-Dutch artist Miguel Ybáñez with GRIMM gallery in Amsterdam. Arqueología emocional 2, is a new series of sculptures, painted books, wall reliefs, oil paintings, and ‘ash drawings’. In the tradition of Art Brut and Arte Povera, Ybáñez created its reliefs and sculptures from cardboard, metal and plaster and various found materials. United in white paint, these objects obtained a timeless and ethereal look. Just like the art movements from the 1950s, Ybáñez aims to transcend the dichotomies between nature and culture, past and present and ‘high’ and ‘low’ art. Throughout the exhibition space, suspended objects were reminiscent of abstracted and enlarged kitchen utensils; a table is ‘set’ with sculptures that resemble plates, cutlery and plate warmers. They are meant by the artist as a tongue-in-cheek…
