ultima cena design alessandro marelli kefa It’s an exhibit about the famous masterpiece The Last Supper, by Leonardo Da Vinci. Many other artists have interpreted the famous scene during history, and this time 13 designers were called to look beyond the scene and imagine the thirteen -never seen before- seats of Jesus and the Apostles. Each designer gave his own interpretation of the symbolic connection between one of the Saints and his chair, with creativity and the due respect. Twelve designers have been selected to represent the new Italian generation. While in the middle of the scene we’ve chosen to set a very charismatic and important personality of the design history: Alessandro Guerriero, the founder of Alchimia, who’ll be celebrated for his amazing and prolific 70 years. The exhibit preview took place during the Milan Design Week in April with sketches and ideas. During the past months all those materials took shapes inside the craftsman workshops in Lissone. The 13 chairs will thus be revealed in October, together with contributions of 13 photographers and 13 critics, who offered their interpretations of each project. ultima cena design alessandro marelli kefa
