Contemporary is an exhibition of radical artists and designers working today across Europe and published worldwide, including Andrea Mancuso of Analogia Project, Studio Cas and Nucleo.


Andrea Mancuso, Analogia Project

Italian designer Andrea Mancuso of Analogia Project presents the Wool Room Installation. Analogia Project investigates the relations of design, architecture, archaeology, technology, and craftsmanship. Starting with entities that are normally taken for granted, everyday space and objects are used as a source of inspiration, wonder, and surprise. The studio approach is experimental, exploring the repetitiveness of everydayness and turning it into wonderment. Everyday spaces and objects represent ourselves, our past, and our memories, whilst embodying the make-up of history and culture.


Lucas is a Brazilian designer who began his career in 2019 and currently operates his atelier in downtown São Paulo where he develops his projects with a group of artisans from various regions of Brazil. Lucas utilises the malleability of glass to create furniture scale, combining aspects of refraction and transparency into materials such as bronze, aluminum, and Brazilian natural stones. He approaches these materials with a fresh perspective, focusing on how to recycle traditional materials with contemporary technologies.

He states, “My purpose is to blur the boundaries between furniture and sculpture using the potencial of glass and recycled glass and express a Brazilian element, not focused on the traditional modern Brazilian wood furniture, but focused in new shapes, textures and colors that new technologies can bring to ancient materials.” In 2019, Lucas began fusing 100% of the glass used in his pieces with solar power.

In this exhibition, Studio Cas will show works from the Morfa, Bulle and Janelas series.


Nucleo is a collective of artists and designers based in Turn, Italy since 1997. Nucleo handcrafts its pieces in its Turin studio, reclaiming ancient artisanal techniques and materials and modulating them every day through contemporary technologies. Nucleo is exhibiting works from the Terra, Presenze and Primitive Series.
