UNICA MEETS THE SKY

The sky is there. Regardless of the relationship that links us to it, it is there.

It is there as we age, in the concept of duration itself, in the diversity of feelings, in the different beauty of situations, when we smile when we discover something and when we become sad due to a defeat, when we use our brains and when we search for comfort.

UNICA MEETS THE SKY

The sky is there. Regardless of the relationship that links us to it, it is there.

It is there as we age, in the concept of duration itself, in the diversity of feelings, in the different beauty of situations, when we smile when we discover something and when we become sad due to a defeat, when we use our brains and when we search for comfort.

No matter what happens, the sky is there.

Always.

Aware of the beauty and monumentality that accompanies life, Unica, through its artists and collaborators, wanted to dedicate one of its most cherished collections to the sky: Orbita.

A famous aphorism attributed to Heraclitus states: Panta rhei, that is, Everything flows summarises, in two simple words, the constant feeling of becoming and the impermanence that, according to the Greek philosopher, permeate things in nature and life itself.

Planets, stars, oceans, the mineral and plant worlds, every single cell is in constant motion and, according to Heraclitus, in this sense, nothing is repeatable in the sky or on the earth.

To bring the sky and the bodies that inhabit it into their work our designers Vanessa Stella, Carola Fumarola and Fabrizio Rocchi, needed to successfully translate essence into material, transforming an unrepeatable experience into an evocation of the same experience.

Thus, the work Luna Rossa brings the sky into our homes, managing to reproduce the famous lunar eclipse of 27 July 2018, a time which happens every 25,000 years when the moon is in the orbit closest to its apogee and Mars in the one closest to the Earth.

Thanks to sophisticated software developed by N.A.S.A. a few variants of the work are able to reproduce, including upon request, the exact position of the planets around the majestic moon, on any given date.

Allineamenti instead, as its name suggests, reproduces an eclipse of those rare and epochal times when the celestial ballet reveals our solar system’s planets aligned in front of the sun.

The sky is always there and has always been there. it is the eye and memory of life that flows and it is always untouchable and just out of reach.

Unica, through its pieces, talks about the sky trying to make it just a little more tangible, embraceable and always present.
