Atomi surveys the dwelling subject matter, collecting home landscapes imaging, conceived and produced on purpose by eight amongst the most appreciated or promising architects and designers of today. Synthetizing personal beliefs about the habitat, all-embracing and totalising visions, the exhibition reveals itself as a succession and a mingling of imaginary places, new creations, highly characteristic and diversified style essences.
Research and memory, inventions, recollecting and reinventing, elegant aesthetic plots and destabilising sight illusions, reality and representation confront themselves and mingle in these present-day ambiences.
Between real and surreal, pathos and humours, past and future.

The exhibition, curated by Beppe Finessi, is a consideration about the flower vase, as every designer has to deal with such an object: this is the reason why we can make a list, an inventory as in the title, of those who are considered the leading designers of the third millennium.
On show nearly fifty vases; among them works by: Lorenzo Damiani, Julien Carretero, Florence Doleac, Marco Ferreri, Alexis Georgacopoulos, Martí Guixé, Massimo Lunardon, Fabio Novembre, Donata Paruccini, Adrien Rovero, Denis Santachiara, Paolo Ulian, Guido Venturini, Julien Carretero; besides, some “historical” pieces by big masters of Design.
The vases on show will be full of flowers, particularly chosen for each vessel considering its colour, shape and texture. An expert florist will look after the floral arrangements throughout the exhibition.
