Suspended between art and design, the design research of the Turinese Jacopo Foggini (1966-) focuses above all on a creative interpretation of plastic materials such as methacrylate or polycarbonate, of which he fully exploits the expressive possibilities, molding them into daring and unusual forms. Jacopo Foggini's creations are "impossible objects", surrounded by a magical and fairy allure, capable of skilfully using the play of reflections, colors and semi-transparencies granted by the material. His experiments began in the family business, where he invents a machine capable of heating methacrylate to temperatures such as to make it a thin filament that can be modeled as desired for artistic interpretations. He moved to Milan and opened his own gallery, which became famous above all for the creation of spectacular chandeliers which soon became the protagonists of highly successful installations and installations, such as for example the one created for the opening ceremony of the 2006 Turin Olympics. Starting from 2014 he also began to devote himself to furniture design, working exclusively with the most imaginative and experimental of the great Italian design brands, the Tuscan Edra, perfectly akin to his poetics of wonder.
