Hotel Chimera

A highly expressive and symbolic capsule collection



<br />
When design becomes solidarity.


When design becomes solidarity.

A variety of elements of different origin and nature which, combined together, create a unique ceramic work of almost 20 square metres that reinterprets the ‘Hotel Chimera’ illustration. An original artistic expression consisting of a puzzle of 80 different fragments, each one a work in its own right, a piece numbered and signed by hand, one by one, by Elena Salmistraro.

The capsule collection is now sold out.

Proceeds from the sale of the individual pieces of artwork will be used to support ‘Doppio senso. Percorsi tattili alla Collezione Peggy Guggenheim’, an accessible visitor experience created by the Venetian museum mainly for blind and visually impaired children. Since 2015 Florim has been part of Guggenheim Intrapresæ, a group of companies that share a passion for art and strongly believe in investing to support culture. In view of this important collaboration and to promote shared values such as sustainability and inclusion, Florim has decided to support the project that the Venetian museum has been running for six years.

The ceramic work designed by Elena Salmistraro reprises – both graphically and symbolically – the theme of the installation created in 2020 in Spazio CEDIT. Just like the Chimera – whose body in Greek mythology was composed of parts from different animals – this 480x400 cm work is made up of 80 different 40x60 cm ceramic elements that together reinterpret the ‘Hotel Chimera’ illustration, presented this time by the designer in two new colours that divide the design into mirror-image halves. The result is a large jigsaw puzzle made up of unique pieces. “The Chimera project perfectly straddles the line between art and industry,” explains Elena Salmistraro. “Even more powerfully on this occasion, the Hotel Chimera installation opens up to the outside world, breaking down into slabs/a painting and becoming the perfect filter between imagination and reality.”
