Green Dunes by Aldo Cibic greets guests at 2014 Downtown Design Dubai

Company News, Events

Dubai is emerging as the new and vibrant location for excellence and creativity: at the foot of Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, the second edition of Downtown Design took place, marking it as the yearly appointment dedicated to interior design in the Emirates.

The event, with its clever mix of good design and culture, brought to Dubai some of the best interior design names, among which Blumohito, who has been invited by the organization to create a stunning installation meant to greet and impress the guests, right at the entrance of the exhibition. This project had to be a work of art rather than design, and it has been handcrafted in Italy on the original art project by Aldo Cibic, who has been invited to give a speech focused on the "Italian Design community" and his personal experience.


Green Dunes

This art project by Aldo Cibic is a tribute to Dubai and a celebration of life. The starting point of this artistic path is the research that Mr. Cibic has conducted into "micro-landscaping", this time focused on some core themes of the Gulf culture: this explains why the sinuous line that separates desert from life, here emphasizes the contrast of the lush vegetation, suddenly appearing like an oasis in the desert. The desert itself is NOT sterile, as life makes her way even in harsh conditions. The lonesome tree is telling us this, and his benign presence gives shade, relief and protection. Unlike anywhere else, here in the Gulf life is impelled by the presence of men, and even a desert dune can be turned into a green hill. The mirror frame blurs the boundary line between the installation and the viewer, as if a mirage was occurring. Likewise, the border between art and design - or between object and experience, if you like - is dazzled. Green Dunes is a cm 480x260h art piece made by Blumohito with natural sand and SAG (Smart Acoustic Green) technology. Following the acclaim received during Downtown Design exhibition, it has been selected to be shown at La Galerie Nationale, in Dubai.
