social networks have always existed, the phrase has certainly become a contemporary term. networks connecting people, events and places:
for these reasons, europe is a mass of connections. designed by alberto fabbian in collaboration with antoniazzi & piovesana, 3B ceramiche
and bosa ceramiche, ‘& ability’ wants to interpret these systematic links as personal and business intersections reflecting culture and land,
through unique and matchless know-how. carried out during the project ‘casa europa’ – euro decennial seen from veneto craftsmen, and
through wicker weaving and decoration on ceramics, different materials and processing, the project develops and rises the tradition in
which to identify; interfacing with the diverse to promote innovation.
conceived using a wooden table holding different components: lampshades, bowls, wicker baskets or ceramic vases, each of them carries its
own identity, even though they’re part of the same project. in the same way we live, independent people but citizens of a larger community.
components are connected in a dynamic dialogue and may be combined upon user’s taste and needs, creating different compositions,
in which weaving is the continuity element.
