More about the show
an exhibition featuring design objects, physical models, and architectural drawings that aims to re-interpret traditional domesticity in contemporary interior design.
Atelier Manferdini presents Domus: Patterns of Living, an exhibition featuring design objects, physical models, and architectural drawings that aims to re-interpret traditional domesticity in contemporary interior design.
Domus: Patterns of Living commences on Wednesday, September 21, the evening of the Pacific Design Center’s annual designer Fall Market day, with an opening reception from 6:00 - 9:00 pm. The exhibition will run through February 3, 2023.
Manferdini’s multi-scale work methodology allows her design practice to participate in a wide range of multidisciplinary developments. The exhibit’s vast range of objects consist of a suite of elevation drawings, models of fictional housing projects, rugs, mirrors, chairs, tables, ceramic objects, chess sets, textiles, and jewelry that oscillate among states of desire, consumption, usefulness, frivolousness, familiarity, and weirdness.
As artifacts shift between analog and digital worlds, Domus ultimately defines Elena Manferdini’s expression of interior design as a vehicle for human emotional states, an aesthetic that has emerged as a result of changing patterns in contemporary culture. Learn more at www.ateliermanferdini.com.
