Little miracles of tangible transparency, unexpected unions of delicacy and conceptual strenght come to life from the mind of Annalisa Cocco, a Sardinian designer who has dedicated years to researching, conceiving and producing manufactured articles on the border between design and craft.
Cocco designed a selection of projects now becoming part of Oji's Objects collection as in a natural communion. The objects collected under the name of TOUMEI (the Japanese for transparency) are glass shapes that morphe while keeping the genes of a common descent: the discreet dimensions, the reference to an organic, vegetable essence, the whispered allusions, a certain subtle, necessary, vivifying irony. Inspired from the archaic culture of her native island, they satisfy functional everyday needs; at the same time, for their taste and aesthetical declination, they aspire to become real contemporary archetypes, armonically responding to the hymn Good Ideas Never Die.
Annalisa Cocco's creation will be showcased together with the complete Oji collection during the GOOD IDEAS NEVER DIE / A PICTURE OF OJI event, taking place during the upcoming Design Week at the Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea gallery in Milan.
