Artist Fabian von Spreckelsen’s Hagane collection for Domani possesses both strength and evanescence.
The new corten steel collection of planters was captured at the Bologna Shoah Memorial, designed by Rome-based SET Architects, which commemorates the Jewish prisoners deported from Bologna’s train station.
The potent piece of architecture is the result of a competition in which Onorato di Manno and Andrea Tanci, two young architecture students, saw the chance to join forces to develop and express their architectural ideas. As a result of their having been entrusted with the design and construction of the monument, the pair formed their own firm a year later.
A subtle and wondrous aspect of the monument is the choice of material, also present in Domani’s Hagane collection, which naturally takes on a rust patina as it weathers, displaying the vestiges of time as it slowly corrodes. A blank canvas for the elements, as it were.
