The invention of modern time – for Maize.

The common cuckoo, native to Europe, had long served as a natural marker of time, a welcome harbinger of Spring whose familiar calls denoted the coming of the new season and warmer weather. Writing eloquently on the cuckoo in his 1849 book Natural History: Birds, English naturalist Philip Henry Gosse described the joy felt upon hearing the first coos of the season. Photographed for Maize – H Farm a new issue about the invention of modern time. Together with the help of Davide Mottes and Anna Marta Azzolini who art directed it.
Thank you Kosmos and Università di Pavia.

Stretching Routine for Kristalia

– A new series by Mattia Balsamini and Studio Fludd for Kristalia Design

Kristalia design pieces become active players in dynamic states of balance. The gym scenario suggests a challenging equilibrium between fun and discipline, body intelligence and rational control, repetition versus randomness.

Stemming of the previous collaborative project Wasted Arena where Mattia Balsamini and Studio Fludd spent a day roaming around the beaches on Lido di Venezia with a survival kit of mixed materials play-fighting on ephemeral battlegrounds on Stretching Routine the attention admittedly shifted towards a controlled and playful environment. As classic pieces got reworked and redesigned, they needed their skills and shapes to be tested.
