With the aim of bringing the Murano heritage into contemporary design, “Off the Dust” explores new contexts where blown glass can be involved, to re-define our relationship with it. Part of a journey around the role of tech products in our spaces, and that of craft in a global, accelerated fruition, Arsenale 01 is a home speaker featuring touch controls, inviting us to interact with Murano, instead of just staring at it.
Scanferlato is a product designer, recently awarded a MA in Design Products from the Royal College of Art, with a background in Interior Design and Fine Arts, and a particular interest in craft practices. His recent work is focused on technological products and how to add human and cultural value to them, enhancing experiences that go beyond a standard interpretation of functionalism, blending beauty, sustainability and simplicity, allowing the process to emerge.
