The pursuit to find individuality and meaningful paths is a never ending process of human kind. As we pursue new experiences and value to our lives, we often forget that the things we consume and purchase also play a role in our identity. Resign, a creative network and lab out of Italy, creates a distinctive methodology to creativity and creation where it attempts to connect to all designers who believe in magic and the symbolic value of things.
Founded in 2007 by Andrea Magnani, Giovanni DelVecchio and Elisabetta Amatori the methodology is based on:
- Channeling creativity into meaningful paths that can be easily shared
- Creating a sense of identity and symbolic capital to their pieces and the network of relations
- The necessity to revise the design methods looking forward towards sustainability
All these facets are integral to their Lab and Network of relations, where they pursue strategic collaborations with complimentary skills. The result is a body of knowledge communicated by their pieces. Full of narrative, mystery and craftsmanship, the collection projects individuality and technique. By mixing materials and textures that we might not perceive as harmonious, they find ways to evoke meaning and value to the compositions. Playful, mystic and intellectual, Resign is finding new life and new meaning to once forgotten materials. By mixing forms, function and techniques, Resign establishes new connections in furniture we have never seen. Every piece is unique, every piece is its own story. A response to the materials and combinations they encounter, Resign will continue to pursue the expansion of their methodology through their designs.
"Every object has an owner who loved it for a minute or for his all life. Every object lived in a house, in a world full of history, in which it playied a particular role, both as main part or just a walk-on. Resign presents “door to door designer”. The door to door designer acts just in time, before the desertedness of the objects, before that the usury of boredom and of the habit let their beauty been forgotten. By acting into the original places of the refusal (houses, stores, offices, factories, etc). The door to door designer changes the course of their history, by transforming it in a new and unique object of Resign." Resign's view on "garbage" and the "door to door designer"
What a great way to maintain life and meaning to the things we think deserve to be displaced. Redefining them can add many more years to the pieces while adding new value to those who interact with it.
