Like a mechanical and material symphony, the Simultanea family, which Vortice and Bolide Tray is part of, uses the basis principles of marble processing to transform it into an accord of hard and soft, shrill and deep signes that work by contrast
Born in Rome, Valentina Cameranesi Sgroi studied product design at Isia and after her degree she had experiences in both the publishing industry and as illustrator in Italy and abroad. She worked in Diesel Industries in the product design department and then she had the opportunity to take on the role of art direction of product shootings and catalogs. Currently lives in MIlan where she works as art director and range of brands and magazines. Her personal work explores the relationship between the artificial and the natural, through various media, especially photography, video and ceramics. She designed fro SEM Simultanea a marble collection of vases and tray where centripetal, centrifugal and movement forces are channeled into stone forms and a rotation on the axis becomes a vase, while an inclined cut suggests a container.
SEM: Appena abbiamo ricevuto la richiesta, non abbiamo esitato a partecipare all’iniziativa. Milano è profondamente legata al design; si può dire essere una sua eccellenza. Come tale, era necessario che
contribuisse con creatività e inventiva, come da sempre è solita fare, a sostenere le strutture che in questo momento sono fondamentali come l’Ospedale Sacco.
