About

Habitat started to take shape in 2017, stemming from Giovanni Botticelli in-depth research on applying techniques and materials for eyewear manufacturing to interior design objects. Botticelli revisits a material he knows well, cellulose acetate, striving to combine concepts, design, and formal purity. He specifically focuses on welding and bending techniques. He combines two or more colors by joining acetate slabs through compressed acetone. Thermal bending is the technique commonly used for curved-front eyewear. The color palette he uses also draws on independent eyewear design, featuring clean contrasts between tan, transparent monochromes, and opaline colors. The installation resulting from this in-depth investigation is presented as a scaled transposition of architecture's typical expressions and forms, suggesting correspondences between essential style codes and pure geometric shapes. Botticelli has created a family of interior micro-architecture that seems to emerge from the fragments of imagined buildings. In his collection, the absolute precision of design meets experimentation to raise the material's creative potential. The Habitat collection was designed exclusively for SWING Design Gallery and produced in a limited and numbered edition. We would like to thank Mazzucchelli 1849 for its support. This long-established company in Castiglione Olona was founded in 1849 as a small factory for the production of Horn and bone combs and buttons. Now it is a world leader in the production and distribution of cellulose acetate.

View Profile
Founded in 2011 by Angela da Silva, SWING Design Gallery began as a platform for promoting the work of talented, emerging contemporary designers from around the world. The gallery soon expanded, participating in international fairs and events (Miart, Operae, Milano Design Week) and producing its own, exclusively-made design objects. SWING explores the boundaries between craft and technology, with a focus on narrative and conceptual languages. With an eye toward experiencing new forms of contemporary aesthetic and investigating traditional methods of production, the gallery commissions and produces unique design pieces and limited collections. In 2018, the gallery relocated to its current home in Palazzo Collenea Isernia. Among the collaborations of SWING: Sara Ricciardi, Ilaria Bianchi, Harry Thaler, Studio Futhermore, Lucia Massari, Giovanni Botticelli, Ahryun Lee, Julie Lansom, Jungin Lee, Studio Birgit Severin, Sarah-Linda Forrer, and Garance Vallèe.
