The Collage mirrors are born from a larger project: the construction of the antoniolupi architectural drawings collection. The idea of turning some of these works into furnishing objects was a natural consequence of the creators’ shared reflections. Transforming an architectural image into an object of use is like a bridge between imagination and life. An intrusion of real world into imagination. The collage technique is based on overlapping fragments. The image comes from the stratification of images of memory. Mirrors are made overlapping printed glass plates, creating tridimensional collages. The last mirrored layer establishes a relationship with the observer, who becomes part of the image itself.
The common thread between art and design is now a distinctive sign of antoniolupi’s work. More than fusion, they refer to two different experiences mixed together to achieve a common goal: an univocal experience of beauty that becomes part of our daily life. Luca Galofaro, Architect and Teacher and creator of this collection, has focused his attention on relationships between representation, urban architecture and image.
