10 NOVEMBER 2016 || BLOW BY BLOW - SEBASTIAN BERGNE

Next Story

Designed by Sebastian Bergne
at OCRA - Officina Creativa dell'Abitare
via Boldrini 4 - Montalcino, Italy
Opening: 11th November 2016 from 4pm

Access to exhibition for the days 12th and 13th November 2016 will be granted through the participation at the event BaroloBrunello 2016.

On November 11, at h.16.00, the Scuola Permanente dell’Abitare, OCRA Officina Creativa dell’Abitare and Matter of Stuff will inaugurate a retrospective exhibition of the Internationally reknown designer Sebastian Bergne, Blow By Blow 16, curated by Matter of Stuff, in occasion of the first edition of BaroloBrunello in Montalcino.

Blow By Blow presents the latest work for the storage, serving and consumption of drinks and wine- Drop jug and Cubit glass- signed by Sebastian Bergne, as well as the finest examples of the Designer’s works in glass, his preferred material for experimentation, from the past 25 years.

“Somehow it seems paradoxical that Sebastian Bergne, all two meters of him, has such a special talent for reinventing the small things that surround us. Ever since I first wrote about him, back in the early 1990s this gentleman giant of a designer has been demonstrating his singular ability to bring fresh eyes and new uses to ordinary objects and mundane materials. Ranging across everything from coat hangers to corks and back, the product portfolio Sebastian has assembled in 20 prolific and entrepreneurial years as a (distinctly) independent product designer is full of visual seduction and functional surprise.

This exhibition of two decades worth of glassware encapsulates Bergne’s talents. From his clever rethinks of assorted drinking glasses of all kinds, to his quirky and distinctive "looking glass" decanter, this is a collection full of the intelligence, humour, charm and elegance that defines Bergne both as a designer and as a man. ” (David Redhead)
