Wunderbrust – Chest of wonders
For Operæ – Independent design festival eighth edition, Secondome under the artistic direction of Claudia Pignatale, presents “WUNDERBRUST” a project by Matteo Cibic, crafted by DOC. As described by the fair curator, Alice Stori Lichtenstein “While nosing and poking around the atelier of DOC, Matteo Cibic was struck by the skill required for making cushions and craft with which boxes and containers were leather-bound. He started to play with the idea of a trunk, seeing it as a timeless object which is passed along in a family. With an eye to the luxurious travelling trunks of the past, and one to the humbler and traditional wooden chest, Cibic developed his own very personal interpretation. The result is a seating bench, that by lifting the lid can be used as a storage space. Using the most natural leather as a canvas, he applied color and a pattern with his signature humour.”
The chest is entirely handmade, crafted in natural leather and chamois, thus subjected to changes through time.
