    Hoorah for Horah by Raw Edges

    At Fuorisalone, Spazio Krizia hosted a reflection by Raw-Edges about light in dialogue with one of the essential aspects of contemporary living: conviviality. And so Horah was born, an installation which took its name from the popular dance of Israeli origin, formed of 30 cast-glass lampshades crafted and engineered by WonderGlass.

    Light is a central aspect for Spazio Krizia, which after its collaborations with Ingo Maurer and Formafantasma, continues this journey of research, choosing Spazio as the perfect set design for the most visionary contemporary investigations into this theme under the creative direction of Zhu Chongyun.  

    Raw-Edges, a design studio founded by Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay, is the formal synthesis of two different approaches which converge in the creation of consistently unprecedented projects and the result of a strong environmental awareness:  Yael loves to create curved volumes and functional shapes, Shay has a profound interest for the way things move, function and interact.  

    “Krizia has always been interested in the cutting edge and dialogue with contemporary cross-disciplinary content, and for that reason we wished to collaborate with Raw-Edges, designers capable of surprising us with their poetic creativity.” Zhu Chongyun, Krizia Creative Director

     “When pursuing our interest for the serial repetition of objects, we realised that their movement in synchrony reinforces the power of the repetition itself.  The synchronisation of elements has an intriguing factor and provokes a certain emotion and fascination, these sensations we experience as we watch the traditional Israeli dancers of the Horah.  The individual is attracted by the power of the group’s cohesion and by the fact that a coordinated rhythmic movement greatly strengthens our attention.” Raw-Edges, Designer  

    “Today, design has no need for new lampshades or chairs, but new design paradigms.  Raw-Edges works on boundaries, investigating living and primary materials.  Raw elements, not yet refined.  They have an atypical speech, little incline to fashion and glitter.  Often silent but of great substance and inspiration.  Delicate and never aggressive. It follows the asymmetrical and experimental poetry of Krizia. Horah merges material, craft, engineering and poetry.  Dedicated to the popular folk dance of the same name, the same community and egalitarian dimension is emulated with a strong symbolic value.  A perfect synchrony which opens and closes, creating a dialogue between as many dancing circles as there are lampshades present in the large Spain Krizia.” Cristiano  Seganfreddo,  Krizia  Artistic  Director
