Patatissima Milano 6-10 giugno 2018

SkinCities reinterprets the rules of cartography by re-reading urban patterns; the cities’ maps tell our culture and history, as witnesses of what we are.
The project wants to restore equal dignity to the places of the Earth, provocatively combining the places where we live in, as wells as those we have dreamed of, hated, or even forgotten... each of them in its precious and desperate diversity.
 Cultures, labyrinths and different spaces where the “skin colour” on which they are laser cut becomes just a pleasant opportunity. The leather used has very different origins, sometimes chosen for some “imperfections”, thus enhancing the beauty of diversity, respecting the life they have been, just like the places they represent. Engraved with laser technologies and manually initialed with the land coordinates.

Patatissima Torino 1-5 novembre 2017

Il Progetto La città reale, la città ideale
Interpreta le diverse temporalità e la
dinamica che coinvolge la città nel suo
rinnovarsi e apre nuove geometrie.
La mappa stessa è il punto di partenza per
generare una nuova relazione tra città e
Il territorio urbano, come involucro ricco di forze vitali e
generatore di stili, dove vengono reinterpretate le regole della cartografia.
Le metropoli catturate su superfici inconsuete:
prepariamoci ad avere un’idea diversa e affascinante delle città.

F&F design objects, are urban creatures, art in movement to see beyond conventional perspectives; laser cut streets and quarters collection. City maps reinterpreted and laser engraved on leather; the megacity seen as a geometric artwork where daily life and art meet. Immersed inside labyrinthine cities that seem to capture ourselves. In reality they tell us of our past and present us shapes and motifs to discover.
