Dossofiorito at Fabrica
Excursus on the duo's works and their relational approach between Design and Nature on May 22.
Dossofiorito are the designers Livia Rossi (1980) and Gianluca Giabardo (1982). The studio, whose name comes from an old salvaged neon sign, was founded in 2012 in Verona, Italy.
In a former car workshop in the suburbs of town, the duo carries out in an empiric way its researches on forms and materials, aiming to combine in their projects a wide contextual research with an innovative use of craft.
The work of Livia and Gianluca spans from self-initiated collections of objects to commissions from institutions, companies and private customers; from site specific installations to the ideation and conduction of children workshops. Although varied, many of Dossofiorito’s projects share a performative character and an attitude to stimulate deeper considerations trespassing the physicality of the objects and their immediate fruition.
