The series features Furman’s ‘Roman Singularity’ range––a series of exclusive limited-edition ceramic works for Bitossi––which is distinguished by the designer’s mastery of traditional Greco-Roman vessel forms, which he has then reinterpreted and renewed in Pop, DesignBoom writes.
[These] represent a free and transversal experimentation—one of the remedies to renew design and architecture in a period of dullness—which calls for versatile solutions and courageous choices.
For Furman, according to his artist statement, this exploration emerges as vibrantly hued ceramics, text, digital renderings, film and drawings.
“The Roman Singularity” The Roman Singularity is a multi-media exploration in text, computer drawing, animation, film, hand drawing, and ceramic, creating an imaginary alternate Rome for the 21st Century; a dream in the mode of Piranesi’s Ichnographiam Campi Martii, a peek out through the other side of Rome’s catastrophic and utterly incomparable reality-bending gravitational field, a new city from which fragments in ceramic, film, and a series of capriccios were made and exhibited at the British School at Rome in March of 2015.
Furman’s Milan installation also features pieces from the Sir John Soane’s Museum in London and more of Furman’s drawings, prints and videos.
Author, consultant and curator Luca Molinari describes Furman’s installation as a dialogue between avant-garde design and Italian tradition “having in common a use of colour and its extreme and vital combinations, along with the capacity of mastering traditional shapes, creating absolutely unique objects.’
