A large ceramic slab with a hypnotic charge releases its expressive force silhouetted against a background surrounded by classical architectural elements. The result of the stylistic signature of Federico Pepe, a multifaceted and creative artist, Araldica is inspired by marbled papers and invokes a carousel of allusive visual perceptions on its surface. In a timeless place, where coexisting references and symbolism hearken back to the historical ruins of classicism, the slab serves as a projection from the future.
CEDIT follows its penchant for experimentation and explores the virtual reality of the metaverse with a digital project that spans the past, the present and the future. CEDIT’s ten ceramic collections today become the stars of a collection of Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs).
Ten New Future Treasures are presented as “items rediscovered in the future”, in a landscape where coexisting references and symbolism hearken back to the historical ruins of classicism. It is a journey between art and design that weaves together different expressive languages to come to land in an almost dreamlike world.
This project perfectly sums up CEDIT’s DNA, strongly geared toward experimentation and firmly rooted in the culture of beauty, art, design and architecture. The ten NFTs uniquely seal individual works-collections as digital artifacts, making their representation unique.
The New Future Treasures NFTs are on sale on the Rarible platform and proceeds are donated to the Save the Children Fund.
In conjunction with Milan Design Week 2022, the Spazio CEDIT showroom in Milan hosted an installation that served as a “portal” to a timeless virtual museum which invites visitors to experience the enjoyment of art and design in a novel way. Hosted on the Bit Hall website, it is a true virtual art gallery which has its physical entrance in Foro Buonaparte and which then continues with a virtual experience on the visitor’s smartphone or other suitable device. Indeed, the exhibition makes it possible for visitors to move around and view dynamic NFTs.
