INTRODUCING

debonademeo x daniele fortuna

COLLABORATION

Behspoke presents the special Hercules chair collection, from the Debonademeo Studio x Daniele Fortuna collaboration.

 

Debonademeo Studio was commissioned by Behspoke to create a limited edition of timeless and unique chairs, inspired by the iconic sculptures of the Italian-based artist Daniele Fortuna.

DANIELE FORTUNA

Born in 1981 in Milan, Italy, Daniele Fortuna spent most of his early teenage years seeing artist in the most famous galleries of Milan.

There, he enrolled in the European Institute of Design and Fashion. 

It is during a hot summer afternoon, that he looked at his parents’ paintings collection more carefully, he was interested in the material they were made of and their proportions. Daniele started to imagine the story behind those paintings. Fascinated by the timelessness of De Chirico, the red inflamed of Sassu and the gestures of Fontana, he felt a magical attraction for those objects, shapes and colors.  His “colormination” work is a color contamination of the old tradition and the contemporary images of the world we are living in, a new pop art way of expression that you will love.

The heroic cannot be the common, nor the common the heroic.

To be heroic may mean nothing more than this then, to stand in the face of the status quo, in the face of an easy collapse into the madness of an increasingly chaotic world and represent another way.
