About the DesignerMario Trimarchi
Mario Trimarchi, born in Sicily, has lived and worked in Milan since 1983. An architect of the "freehand" generation, he has always moved freely within the visual universe and considers drawing, photography, design and image as equal components with the same theoretical approach. Between 1994 and 1998 Trimarchi was Director of Advanced Design at the Domus Academy and from 1989 to 2000 was part of the Olivetti Design Studio, where he worked with Michele De Lucchi. In 1999 he founded his own Corporate Identity Care studio, FRAGILE. With FRAGILE he designs systems of identity, coordinated image and visual alphabets through which diverse individualities can be expressed. He has designed many trademarks, most notably for Poste Italiane, the graphics for numerous large exhibitions, communications systems for Italian design companies and, finally, many displays and interiors. Never relinquishing his passion for drawing, architecture or design, he is currently working on the theme of unstable geometries, which he utilizes within the context of our relationships with everyday objects in an attempt to change, however slightly, our habitual patterns of living.
The Stanza dello Scirocco, a project designed by Mario Trimarchi and presented in 2009 consisting of a small Basket, a tea light holder, a Fruit holder, a centerpiece, and a fruit bowl, has been enlarged to include a vase cover for orchid. Thanks to its light, airy form, this vase cover allows you to perceive a space of light and shadow between the container and its contents. This precious effect is cleverly obtained in a by inserting transparent floral water tubes, like the plastic ones normally used with orchids, into small vase covers. The part of the vase cover that extends upward holds the orchids' stems erect, thereby eliminating the unsightly supports normally used.
