PERCORSI IN CERAMICA
“Coming together is a beginning, keeping together
is progress and working together is success”, is one
of Henry Ford’s visionary quotes. For Casalgrande
Padana working with architects, supporting their
ideas and giving substance to their creation is
the crucial and principal driver of its every action.
This entrepreneurial process is littered with many
significant projects side by side with the protagonists
of the international architecture scene, as in the case
of Daniel Libeskind. With him, Casalgrande Padana
shared the ambitious Residenze CityLife project in
Milan, by supplying 50,000 m2 of ceramic façade
cladding and subsequently with the Pinnacle project,
designed and built during 2013 Bologna Water
Design event, an urban design show held last year
during the Cersaie exhibition.
The relationship with the New York based architect further strengthened with a collaboration agreement involving the design and construction of several new ceramic stoneware flooring and cladding series, as testified to by those used for the Pinnacle project. The tale of these architecture, design and industrial production experience is the backbone of the “Percorsi in Ceramica” issue you are reading, which is entirely devoted to Libeskind as an architect and some of his most recent works.
Born in Lodz, Poland but American by adoption, Daniel Libeskind graduated in 1970 at New York’s Cooper Union. He still resides and works in the Big Apple. The remarkable intellectual and artistic value he stands out for are expressed in his personal approach to design that mirrors his involvement and interest in several disciplines, from philosophy to art, from literature to music. Considered among the absolute protagonists of contemporary architecture, his works combine science, mathematics, astronomy and design.
This is a direct testimony of this way of thinking and designing, provided in these pages in the form of an interview he released during the IX Grand Prix Casalgrande Padana edition award ceremony, where Libeskind, the guest of honour, delivered a keynote speech.
