Bologna Water Design 2014Efesti
The water and the design invaded Bologna with exhibitions and meetings at BWD 2014, an event that ended last Sunday and was held in conjunction with Cersaie, an international Exhibition of ceramic for architecture. For its fourth edition, has been chosen an exceptional location in the heart of the city: the ex Bastardini’s Hospital, historical XVI century palace located in via d’Azeglio.
They have participated in many exhibitions and projects personalities and prominent companies, including Visionnaire, which since 1959 offers a neo-Baroque classic-style décor. In his Showroom in Via Farini, Visionnaire has presented the new project of Alessandro Spada, a wellness and beauty area coherent with the company’s style.There was also “THE ALCHEMIST” a selection of kinetic sculptures of the artist Alessandro Brighetti. An important part of BWD which made the event even more innovative was the section of the new proposals, with some partnerships between emerging artists in differents fields.
Among these,very interesting collaboration between Miroarchitetti and the Japanese artist Chizu Kobayashi, from which came the work “ABISSI INOSSIDABILI” which is a gateway to a underwater dreamworld.
The event was like a river which has gone through and influenced Bologna,for six days, which ended with a video projection by the roBOt, festival which will open on Wednesday,1th of October.
