Review by Leonard Koren
"Matteo Cibic is the future of Italian design.
He has fabulous ideas and a genius spirit.
His latest project, VasoNaso, is a case in point: 365 new objects—one for each day of 2016—handmade in Italy by the maestro himself. Matteo promises that each object will have its own soul, its own personality. There will be good objects and bad objects. There will be extroverts and introverts. Lovers and loners . . .
Only by combining two objects one can assess the differences, feel and cross the relations, and imagine a story that binds them.
Matteo pledges to transform primordial materiality into a sociological wonderland. He’ll even throw in some metaphysics.
I just placed my order. Perhaps you should too?"
