massimiliano adami: alba vase for serralunga

 

 

 

the ‘alba’ vase series, produced by serralunga and designed by massimiliano adami is a collection of archetypal forms, enriched by a particularly simple effect: a gradient that brings the smooth surfaces to life brings giving them surprising visual and physical lightness. this unusual quality pushes the rotational moulding technology to the limits of its unexplored aesthetic potential. the hand-finished border makes each piece unique and reveals the craftsmanship hidden within the mass production of plastic objects.

massimilano adami

was born near milan, in monza, italy in 1969. he studied at the istituto statale d’arte, focusing on industrial and environmental design, and at the school of design at milan’s politecnico. adami creates limited-edition and one-of-a-kind pieces, as well as large-scale projects for a variety of clients and private commissions. to date, he has collaborated with companies like cappellini, meritalia, refin ceramiche, zerodisegno, moss, and implemented special projects for alcantara, group fendi/designmiami, and poltrona frau. his pieces are included in the collections of esteemed galleries and institutions such as philips de pury in london, rossana orlandi in milan, ottobarradieci in bergamo, and the design museum in milan.

 

adami is driven by experimentation in both material and manufacturing techniques as well as respecting traditional artisanal processes. previously designboom published his 2013 gommapiuma décor furniture collection, for which adami used new and upcycled polyurethane to craft and mold a series of colorful chairs.
