Daniele Toesca: thoughts about the Armchair DT37 & Footstool in Gold 24k

Essendo legato alle cose semplici, volevo riposare o meglio, posare il mio didietro sopra una sfera per provarne l’effetto. Questa sfera, naturalmente, dopo essere stata usata, sarebbe dovuta ritornare alla sua forma originaria: Naturale. Per fare questo ho, per la prima volta, dovuto mettere da parte l’uso della pelle, ed usare come rivestimento dei materiali naturali ed eco compatibili (il lino o la canapa), un po’ elasticizzati. L’imbottitura, il fulcro della seduta, doveva risolvere quanto sopra e dopo vari esperimenti ho scelto il Memory Foam, che assolve benissimo il ruolo prefissatogli. ⠀ Questa è la premessa, anche scherzosa, dal punto di vista tecnico. Ciò che più mi interessava e premeva veramente dentro, però, era altro: volevo rappresentare questo difficile momento storico che ci accomuna tutti. ⠀ Dove noi posiamo il didietro, la sfera, è il nostro pianeta Terra, il Paradiso dove viviamo e che dobbiamo assolutamente rispettare; lo schienale (un toroide tronco) è tutto ciò che la circonda e che fa parte di questo microcosmo: la natura, gli animali, l’atmosfera, che negli ultimi anni è stato messo duramente alla prova. Tronco perché è aperto al prossimo e perché c’è posto per tutti; tronco perché, per qualche ragione, ci sono ancora troppe cose irrisolte e troppe ingiustizie sulla Terra, e noi dobbiamo lavorare per migliorarci e migliorare tutto ciò che la circonda. Fatelo soprattutto per voi stessi. Vi sentirete rinati. ⠀ I tre supporti di acciaio, che avvolgono e tengono insieme tutto questo, sono: l’Amore, che vince sempre e senza il quale nulla avrebbe senso; la Salute, nostra e del posto in cui viviamo (impariamo a rispettare la Natura); il Tempo, una risorsa limitata che non si può comprare e non può essere restituita. Bisogna scegliere al meglio il Tempo, Presente, che abbiamo a disposizione. ⠀ Quel bottone colorato in cima alla sfera rappresenta ognuno di noi: è la nostra passione, la destinazione, l’obiettivo che ci spinge ogni giorno ad alzarci dal letto e fare qualcosa, lo scopo della nostra Vita. Quel bottone al centro siamo noi, è vero, ma ricordiamoci sempre che facciamo parte di un tutt’uno. Grazie Daniele * * * * * * * Since I love simplicity, I wanted to see how it would be to rest, or better, to sit my bum on a sphere to try its effect. Obviously, I wanted this sphere to bounce back to its original shape, a natural one, after being used. To do this, I have decided not to use leather for the first time. Instead, as a cover, I used natural and environmentally friendly materials (linen or hemp), slightly made stretchy. The padding, the cornerstone of the seat, had to be what made the shape bounce back. After several experiments I chose Memory Foam, which does exactly what I needed it to do. ⠀ This is an introduction, a playful one, to the technical side of this piece. What I really wanted to do, in the inside, was to represent this hard historical time we are facing together. ⠀ Where we lay our bum, the sphere, is our Planet Earth; the paradise we live on and we need to respect. The backrest (a truncated toroid) is everything that surrounds it and that is part of this microcosm: nature, animals, the atmosphere, which have been put to test these past years. It’s truncated because it’s open to welcome others, there’s space for everyone; it’s truncated because, for some reason, there are still many unresolved aspects and too many injustices on this Earth, and we have to work hard to better ourselves and make this planet a better place. Do is for yourselves in the first place. You will feel reborn. ⠀ The three steel supports, that envelop and keep everything together, are Love, that always wins and without which nothing would make sense; Health, our own health and of the planet we inhabit (we need to learn to respect Nature); Time, a limited resource that cannot be bought and cannot be returned. We need to live more wisely the Time, the Present, we have. ⠀ The colored button on top of the sphere represents each one of us: it’s our passion, the destination, the purpose of our Lives that guides us every day. That button in the center, that’s us, yes. But remember we are just part of the whole. Thanks Daniele
