  • Within the context of Fuorisalone 2018, Studio Vedèt acted as a creative consultant for the major “Lina Bo Bardi Giancarlo Palanti – Studio D’arte Palma” exhibition organised by Nilufar gallery. Focusing especially on work realised within Studio Palma, this exhibition presents the largest collection ever brought together of Lina’s furniture.
    Vedèt created the show’s visual identity, catalogue and website presenting theoretical texts, images, videos and historical documents about the late designer. The components of the visual identity employ the aesthetics of the designers repertoire in a modern fashion, demonstrating her relevance to contemporary design.

  • During Fuorisalone 2018, ALCOVA opened the doors of one of Milan’s most historic panettone factories to the public. The complex’s vast spaces - partly taken over by plants and vegetation - hosted projects by designers, institutions, galleries, and companies working at the avant-garde of themes such as contemporary living, design culture, materials, and technological innovation.

    Along with Space Caviar, Studio Vedèt curated and produced the exhibition for which Vedèt created a visual identity in which bold fluorescent coloured forms, shaped as alcoves hover over images in a multi-layered website. This represents the powerful synergies and overlapping entities of the old factory and the contemporary projects which it contains.

  • Answering a brief asking for a more contemporary and playful identity, Studio Vedèt designed and produced the new website for the Brompton Design District, one of the most inspired participants of the London Design Festival.

    After ten years of monotony, we invigorated their online presence with a dynamic, and sometimes intrusive design to create a unique and hard-to-forget experience within a well organized structure.

  • We conceived the visual identity and communication strategy of the edgiest collectible design and art fair. As a traveling showcase, Nomad migrates between different venues, from the charming Villa La Vigie in the Principality of Monte Carlo, to the legendary Chesa Planta in St. Moritz. Like the fair, each edition of the print and digital identity is nuanced, providing for variation and a common thread.

  • Studio Vedèt has been working with the Nilufar Gallery for over two years, creating an innovative and interactive online presence of one of the most important design galleries in the world. Over the duration of the engagement we’ve both designed the concept for the site and provided ongoing updates to support the dynamic nature of the collection.

  • From naming, to visual identity, to wayfinding, the catalogue and the website, Studio Vedèt is designing every component of the communication strategy for Sommet, the New Salon for Contemporary Art. With only vintage imagery of the striking Hotel Maloja Palace at our disposal, we used them within a modern interface to create a contemporary experience suitable for the newborn event which will debut in St. Moritz next February.

  • FAR is a parasitic entity — an experiment in design poised to infiltrate Nilufar, one of Milan’s most celebrated galleries. Building on the seminal pilot project in 2018, the April ‘19 exhibition will envelop the cavernous void of Nilufar Depot, disruptively subverting the established order of the gallery’s programs.
    FAR is a voyage into a galaxy of emergent designers. It embraces the work of individuals who often operate as collectives - forming, dissolving and regrouping fluidly and open-endedly. It is a temporary collective of collectives, so to speak, that captures a snapshot of a new generation. FAR subliminally echoes the radical experiments of a previous generation, one that understood design as a language capable of transcending the basic logic of consumption in order to operate instead, on the level of political thought.
    FAR is curated by Studio Vedèt, who is also developing a visual identity inspired by the same obsessions explored by the 10 participating designers.
  • Studio Vedèt created the web identity, content strategy and interactive web platform for the legendary Milanese bar.
    The project includes a series of online exhibitions featuring renowned designers, artists and writers. Each of the three exhibitions to date features a varied collection of photography, writings, fonts, drawings, tokens and etc. A bespoke visual identity for each exhibition creates an unexpected user experience.
    The website – which was featured in several international magazines – is an ongoing project, growing year after year with new exhibitions.

  • Volumnia sounds large and in reality, it is massive. It is a platform for art and design that will inhabit the cavernous interior of a former church in the heart of Piacenza. With roots in the renaissance, it is a monumental and awe-inspiring space (3000 sqm) steeped in history, with rows of columns that spring dozens of meters into the air. Enrica de Micheli, a gallerist with over 20 years of experience in antiques and design, initiated the revitalization of this historic space through a broad range of activities including an exhibition space, a bistrot and a year-round cultural program. Studio Vedèt created Volumnia identity, including naming, logo design, website and collateral materials.

  • Martina Simeti’s curatorial project consists of an exhibition space and a laboratory. It welcomes international artists - whose interdisciplinary work toggles the border between conceptual and applied design.
    Studio Vedèt created the visual identity, a minimalist website and exhibition catalogues.
    The interplay between what is shown and not shown blurs the lines between disciplines, interpretations and expectations.

  • Bernhard Schobinger (Zurich, b.1946) is among the most important protagonists of contemporary art jewelry. Schobinger subjects the piece of jewelry to a radical reconsideration, overturning the traditional codes nearly to the point of destroying them. His first Milanese solo show was held at the studio of Turi Simeti in anticipation of the opening of the Martina Simeti Gallery. Studio Vedèt created the visual identity for the exhibition and an ad hoc website. Employing a language similar to that used by the artist, one of rebellion against tradition.
  • Alice Stori Liechtenstein has converted her home, the Austrian Castle Schloss Hollenegg, into a residency program focused on emerging experimental designers. Now in its third edition, Schloss Hollenegg for Design has invited young designers to consider the palace and its history as a means to investigate the significance of what we leave behind. The exhibition “Legacy” looks at both the past and the future to explore the importance of heritage, in personal and collective terms. Studio Vedèt conceptualized, designed and art directed the exhibition catalogue, exploring contemporary representations of the castle’s antique objects.
  • A new brand born out of the company Lidi which boasts over half a century of expertise in metal carpentry. Fucina is decisively committed to experimentation and quality design. Fucina wishes to pursue new challenges through collaboration with various designers under the artistic direction of Maddalena Casadei.
    In the first collection called Digest, weldings, joints, and seams disappear in in an attempt to eliminate the industrial quality of the metal in favor of a formal and visual lightness. These works embody the oxymoron of robust lightness.
    Studio Vedèt drew inspiration from this vision to design the website and the catalog for the collection exhibited at Milan’s FuoriSalone 2018.

  • META - Curation, Graphic Design


    The exhibition META curated by Studio Vedèt in collaboration with the galleries SEE••DS and Salvatore Lanteri, explored the theme of meta-communication.

    The pieces gathered in this exhibition seemed like unusual meta-linguistic operations. It was difficult to find a precise meaning in their forms, or rather non-forms, and they appeared to be gestures or pretexts for thinking about the material they were made of – sensual pleasures in glass and gas; morbose and inextricable intertwining of cement and foam; bold chalk acrobatics; overflowing and uncontrollable ceramics; then, associations between the spheres of granite dust, marble and concrete.

    Works by Odd Matter, Jochen Holz, Duccio Maria Gambi, Aneta Regel, Karin Karinson, DWA Design Studio.
  • Designed by De Allegri and Fogale for FuoriSalone 2017, the installation Mystical Solace was a presentation of symbolic, surreal and haptic objects. Stairs that ascend into empty space, thresholds that offer transformation, boulders that pose as talismans, stones as mirrors.
    Set up like a mausoleum, a wink to spiritual allusions, the gesture was a demonstration of irony and power in the very heart of commercial Milan.
    Studio Vedèt and Matteo Fiorini curated the project for Casone, a leader in mining, cutting, processing, and fabrication of stone.

  • Together with Jerszy Seymour, Erasmus Scherjon, Stephane Barbier Bouvet and Emanuele Braga, Valentina Ciuffi (now Studio Vedèt) activated and coordinated the workings of "The Wandering School". The project was a non-stop performance running continuously from April 1 to 17, 2016, (between successes and failures), by the students of the Amsterdam-based "Dirty Art Department", in conjunction with the MiArt and Salone del Mobile events in Milan. The experiment harked back to the most unconventional and radical school experiences and ironically made reference to Sidney Pollack's masterpiece They Shoot Horses, Don't they?! (This project was developed with Actant Visuelle).
  • The collaboration with the gallery SEE••DS (SpecialEventsExhibits••DesignStore) lasted from 2016 to 2018. In those years the gallery operated a space in South Kensington bringing a contemporary project to a picturesque and traditional London district. SEE••DS moved between design and art, adopting an experimental approach which started with a physical transformation of the gallery (curated by Carol Rabolli Pansera) into two spaces (SEE and DS), distinct but adjoined, presented two different ways of exhibiting objects and works. The creative and design consultancy was started as Actant Visuelle and continued by Studio Vedèt until the summer of 2018, involving some of the most compelling contemporary designers such as: Martino Gamper, Max Lamb, Francois Dumas, Odd Matter, Pietro Russo, Max Frommeld, OS&OOS... and others.

  • Studio Vedèt participated in the creation of the identity and designed the online platform for Fatto-Bene, an original archive and e-commerce dedicated to the “Archetypes of Italian Everyday Life” (legendary industrial products that have stood the test of time). Thanks to its simple but strong identity, the project was internationally successful and recognised by experts of anonymous design such Jasper Morrinson, design critics like Alice Rawsthorn and has found space within the design shops of important museums.
