Do Ut Do 2014 Design
The DO UT DO 2014 DESIGN catalog, published by Forma Edizioni, is part of a project supporting the Hospice Seràgnoli Onlus Foundation, a non-profit active since 2002 in assistance, training, research, and disseminating knowledge about palliative care.
The project includes three exhibitions: the first will take place from May 16 to 18 at MAXXI in Rome; the second will be from May 22 to May 25 at MADRE in
Naples; and the third from September 22 to October 19 at MAMbo in Bologna.
The final event will be a “lottery” to give away works, slated for October 24 in Bologna at MAST, Manifattura di Arti, Sperimentazione e Tecnologia.
Driving the do ut do project are designers, architects, artists and manufacturers taking on the challenge of creating objects whose importance is in their use. They include: Emilio Ambasz, Archea, Claudio Bellini, Mario Botta, Michel Boucquillon, Sandro Chia, Michele De Lucchi, Odile Decq, Doriana e Massimiliano Fuksas, Stefano Giovannoni, Massimo Iosa Ghini, Daniel Libeskind, Antonio Marras, Richard Meier, Alessandro Mendini, Jean Nouvel, Luigi Ontani, Mimmo Paladino, Andrea Salvetti, William Sawaya, Luca Scacchetti, Claudio Silvestrin, Ettore Sottsass, Philippe Starck, Axel Vervoordt, Alessi, Bisazza, Casale Bauer, Co.Modo, Danese / Artemide, Genesia, GoriLab, GVM, Kollmar 1921, Italcementi, Leucos, Margraf, Martinelli Luce, Mascagni, Memphis, Riva 1920, Sawaya & Moroni and Tendentse.
The catalog includes all the pieces designed by the designers and made by the companies, illustrating them with images and descriptions, including brief
designer bios. The designers showed their support by donating their pieces, which, through a lottery will be given away to those who have supported the Foundation’s work.
Exceptional support for the project comes from MASBEDO, a video artist duo who helped produce an original video, Look Beyond.
