La Prefettura Gifu , “Cuore del Giappone” presenta i secolari know-how dei suoi artigiani e laboratori in un’esperienza scenografica dai mille contrasti.

Gli oggetti risultanti dagli scambi di collaborazioni artistiche, fusioni di sapere e nuove prospettive culturali, sono allestiti nella CASA GIFU, la dimora effimera italiana di Gifu; una delle regioni più importanti del Giappone.


atelier oï

atelier oï è stato fondato nel 1991 da Aurel Aebi, Armand Louis e Patrick Reymond a La Neuveville in Svizzera. Sin dall’inizio il progetto artistico mira a cancellare la diversità di genere e a dare peso alla trasversalità delle discipline. Il lavoro di respiro internazionale varia dall’architettura, architettura d’interni, al design e alla scenografia. Multidisciplinarità, spirito di squadra e il rapporto stretto con la materia sono alla base della filosofia creativa di atelier oï. Una caratteristica principale di atelier oï è la sperimentazione, laddove la realizzazione nasce da un rapporto intuitivo ed emozionale nella lavorazione dei materiali diversi. I progetti di atelier oï hanno avuto riconoscimenti internazionali importanti. In occasione di scambi culturali ed eventi creativi atelier oï ha firmato prodotti per B&B Italia, Bvlgari, Driade, Foscarini, Louis Vuitton, Moroso, Pringle of Scotland, USM, Victorinox e Danese.
