Milan – Thank you dear Barnaba for trusting my idea, setting and mise en place of an intimate dinner around your charming Fornasetti home.
Concept and Styling of a multimedia banquet for BOFFI De Padova, Milan via Solferino.
A reworking of food and still life concepts, contamination of contrasts and extremely different elegances: antique, design, baroque, real and virtual icons, substance and its phantoms, past and future, nature and culture: a table that nourishes the taste of beauty.
Behind a display from Peter Greenaway’s movie The Cook, the Thief, his Wife and her Lover.
Many thanks to Peter and his crew for the trust and friendship.
“I’ve been always fascinated by contrasts: the Baroque splendour of Greenaway’s film and the rarefied, almost metaphysical Boffi design. Clarity vs. chaos, minimalism vs maximalism, inhibition vs indulgence. Echoing the eternal less is more”.
