Mario Trimarchi, born in Sicily, has lived and worked in Milan since 1983. An architect of the “freehand” generation, he has always moved freely within the visual universe and considers drawing, photography, design and image as equal components with the same theoretical approach. Between 1994 and 1998 Trimarchi was Director of Advanced Design at the Domus Academy and from 1989 to 2000 was part of the Olivetti Design Studio, where he worked with Michele De Lucchi. In 1999 he founded his own Corporate Identity Care studio, FRAGILE. With FRAGILE he designs systems of identity, coordinated image and visual alphabets through which diverse individualities can be expressed. He has designed many trademarks, most notably for Poste Italiane, the graphics for numerous large exhibitions, communications systems for Italian design companies and, finally, many displays and interiors. Never relinquishing his passion for drawing, architecture or design, he is currently working on the theme of unstable geometries, which he utilizes within the context of our relationships with everyday objects in an attempt to change, however slightly, our habitual patterns of living.
“La Stanza dello Scirocco” is a range of items born out of the abstract and motionless atmosphere of a magic place. Presenting a collection of geometrically irregular items made up of small splinters of various sizes, interlaced in an unstable balance. Their pecularity lies in the fact that they have been designed with their shadows as starting points by halting unforeseen moments of fragments agitated by the wind, shadows that multiply and are as restless as unfocused photographs Designed by:
