The Project as a research tool
In Venice, in conjunction with the opening of the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale, Marco Piva inaugurates his own exhibition “Designing The Complexity – Materials Colors Textures”, focused on the aesthetic and functional research behind the contemporary design planning.
OKITE®, leading brand in the quartz surfaces market, presents a new generation of stones created to offer elegant, multifunctional solutions for interior decorations.
With its formal purity, highly functional qualities and a mix of natural and high-tech features, OKITE® represents a perfect interior decoration solution to enhance any environment with its striking contemporary style.
It’s ideal for hotels, restaurants, luxury homes, boutiques and offices and any other residential or commercial space to be enhanced with a distinctive identity and a cutting-edge look
The location is the “Scuola Grande della Misericordia”, a building attributed to Sansovino, an Italian sculptor and architect of 1500, just reopened after the renovation works by “Gruppo Umana”.
The exhibition is displayed at the ground floor, which is divided into three naves by twin columns, while upstairs, in the great hall, it’s possible to see frescoes painted by Paolo Veronese‘s school.
The exhibition starts from the theme of architecture, which is presented “in action”, through 6 videos that illustrate the design’s activities of Studio Marco Piva, each one focusing on individual aspects necessary for the realization of an architectural or design work.
The aim is to narrate the design process: from the concept phase to the development, through the selection of materials, technical design and construction phases, until the completion.
An indispensable research path in today’s design, that reveals the soul that lies within each work.
IT’S OKITE® TIME!
THE FUTURE OF INTERIOR DECORATION
At Milan’s Fuori Salone, OKITE® – in collaboration with architect Marco Piva – makes its debut with new solutions for interior architecture and looks ready to conquer new sectors.
OKITE®, the internationally renowned brand specialising in worktops for the kitchen and bathroom, is about to start a new era. Gearing up for Milan Design Week with an impressive exhibition designed by Studio Marco Piva, the brand is set to showcase the intriguing new possibilities posed by its innovative material composed of up to 93% quartz.
From the United States to the United Arab Emirates via Europe and Asia, OKITE® – a 100% Made in Italy brand – has grown at global level thanks to its continuous innovation and is now further supported by the collaboration with architect Marco Piva. One of the biggest names in the contract design sector, Piva has conjured up a fresh interpretation of the properties of OKITE®, a cutting-edge material which counts robustness and aesthetic versatility as its main strengths.
The concept of the special art installation located at Corso Garibaldi 65 is Il Tempio di Archimede [The Temple of Archimedes], with the majestic setting offering a hi-tech spin on volume, perspective and primordial geometric patterning. A triumph of shape and colour whose focal point is an imposing tub oozing symbolic value, the project showcases a comprehensive picture of the infinite possibilities offered by OKITE®. Indeed, the brand’s formal purity and highly practical qualities mean it is the ideal solution for interior decoration, capable of taking residential, commercial and hotel spaces to the next level thanks to a strong contemporary identity. And there is no better example of this than the Translucent collection, available in three varieties: the semi-transparent surfaces are back lit using LED lights to create a unique scenic effect.
OKITE® is the leading brand in the quartz surfaces sector. Quartz is one of the most resistant materials in the natural world, making it one of the most appealing for multi-functional surfaces. Resistant to stains, heat and scratches, quartz is five times stronger than granite. It’s also non-porous, easy to clean, requires minimal maintenance and is the perfect material for creating natural spaces with high scenic impact.
OKITE® and Studio Marco Piva are taking advantage of the Milan Design Week spotlight to unveil two more prestigious initiatives: the main sponsorship of the charity project promoted in collaboration with Oxfam and the Via Durini Association, plus the exhibition of design works in the Hogan boutique in Via Montenapoleone.
