Cleto Munari Launches New Collection in Collaboration with Architects, Artists and Poets


NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB).- Design impresario Cleto Munari has launched his first Furnishings Collection, in collaboration with nine international architects, poets and artists. Starting with Italian architect Carlo Scarpa in the seventies, Munari has orchestrated collections of sterling silver tableware, jewelry, Murano glass, watches, pens, and now limited edition tables, cabinets, seating and rugs. Munari has selected world renowned architects, and visual and literary artists to work in complete freedom without the limitations of market or production constraints. The participants create functional art that reflects their personal design motifs, from the “graphic doilies” of Alessandro Mendini to angled swords that slice the surface of Mimmo Paladino’s table. Each piece in the Furnishings Collection is produced in a signed limited edition of 9,99 or 999. For the first time Munari has collaborated with poets. Lawrence
