Fascinated by the forces of nature, Giorgio Gasco wanted to capture the wild and pure feeling of the Romantic painting ‘the Wanderer above the Sea of Fog’. But nature is no longer what it used to be. Should designers accept or fight this? With this organic-looking yet synthetic bath, Giorgio creates a new context for reflection.
Nowadays the sense of environmental responsibility and even guilt compete with a feeling of power and an immersion in the freedom of making for a designer. In order to restore an internal sense of equanimity and a comprehensive and holistic vision, we need to step out and create a new context for reflection. We need to take a bath, and ponder the incoherence of human nature—our fragility, our strength, and our solitude amidst the infinite.Now it's your turn, come to mediamatic, take a bath and experience your thoughts in a new context!
