TID talks about the industrial design of Gio Minelli

Gio Minelli combines, in his projects, his artistic roots with the technologies and research typical of industrial design. In a first phase the approach of the designer to the project is mainly artistic, ex-pressive, gestural even almost pictorial. Only in a second phase translates all this into a real project.

As his "Anomalie collection", which develops starting from the concept, no doubt strong, of rebel-lion. Rebellion as the only expressive gesture, even in the materials that make up the object, which molding, take on new features and sophisticated forms, while keeping their function intact. It is a collection, born in 2004, of small tables, chairs and consoles made entirely of mirror-polished stain-less steel.

The breaking of the patterns is imposed by the legs that, with a harmonious movement, impose their presence invading the space of the support surface to express themselves fully in a dance of curves. The line, although simple and essential, is charged with a strong dynamism that configures a completely new form and structure.

The harmony created by the rebellion of the elements, may seem a real contradiction, but in reality gives extreme balance to the final composition. A perfect dynamism, full of elegance and simplicity, for a truly unique collection.

This is not the first collection for the designer, who had already put himself into play in 2002, exper-imenting with some pieces in a limited series.

In particular, seats in harmonic steel painted with liquid were created, a material already used in the construction of springs. The collection is born as experimentation of materials and inspirations, so much so that in the initial phase the name is not chosen but only the names of the single objects are indicated. There are no edges or corners; the lines are pure and essential, in full Minelli style. Also in this case there is a search for dynamism, in which the curved shape takes possession of the scene.
