The Florence Biennale is the main contemporary art exhibition in Florence, representing a showcase of excellence for contemporary artistic production on an international level. Every two years it animates the Medici city with a program of collateral events such as conferences, exhibitions, performances and educational initiatives that offer artists and visitors different opportunities to meet and discuss various aspects of art and culture. Since its foundation, it has emerged as an independent, free and innovative platform for contemporary art. Over the years, thousands of artists from over one hundred countries have taken part in this exhibition, which houses the main forms of artistic expression. The Arch. Gabriele Goretti, curator of the Design Area for this 2019 edition, has selected some objects designed by Arch. Piero Angelo Orecchioni for MARIONI. Our company is very honored to be able to participate in the event with representative pieces of the Notorious line. We look forward to seeing you from 18 to 27 October at the Fortezza da Basso for the Florence Biennale 2019.
Marioni is proceeding with the development of the Mixedrinteriors project, which is now in Phase II. The goal is the application of AR / VR solutions in the traditional sectors of furnishing-complement-objects, campers and boating - intended as a macro sector of the interior - to ensure distinctiveness and competitiveness. The application of AR / VR will take place in different ways (ie at different times in the life cycle) depending on the sectors, favoring the first or second technology in relation to the specificities of the process and the actual benefits it can bring and intervene in the phases design, communication, sales and after-sales, central to the Made in Italy sectors. The project will show both the horizontal applicability (supporting the connection between different steps in the life cycle) and the vertical one (ad hoc sectoral applications for the efficiency of specific sector processes) of these technologies. The MixedRinteriors partnership sees the presence of a group of intersectoral industrial realities: Richard Ginori, leader, for tableware sector, Savio Firmino and Marioni for the home furnishing sector, SEA camper for the relative sector as regards to the interiors , 7Stars for the design and construction of interiors in the nautical field. There is a technological partner, Mediacross, specialized in the development and application of innovative technologies such as VR and AR in various contexts, which will actively collaborate with the two ORs - University of Florence with the Department of Architecture - DIDA - for the relevant competences of design, interface design and technological integration and University of Siena with the Department of Social, Political and Cognitive Sciences - DISPOC for the competences related to the VR and AR system and to the market.
Today it attracts over 125 superyachts with an average length closer to 50 metres, of which around 42 are new launches making their worldwide debut. The average value of the yachts on display is now a staggering €27 million. This is a far cry from the very first edition of MYS in 1991, when there were just 32 yachts moored in Port Hercules averaging 31 metres in length. This year’s fleet will feature larger superyachts compared with 2018. The largest luxury vessel will be 107 metres in length. 21 units will exceed 60 metres with an average size of 75m! It is hard to overestimate the importance and prestige of MYS as a barometer that measures the state of the large yacht industry. When business is booming, there is a tremendous vibe among the yacht brokers and builders walking the dock. But in a sector still adapting to the aspirations of younger buyers and charterers, continued prosperity is not guaranteed and there is no room for complacency. As a proactive industry player, MYS is embracing change by adopting development strategies that deliberately target the emerging superyacht clientele. Already filled to capacity each year and occupying much of Port Hercules, there is little or no opportunity for physical growth in Monaco. Instead, the show organisers are focusing on delivering the best platform for business and the most efficient solutions for exhibitors to liaise with clients. One area of improvement, for example, has been optimising the layout into thematic zones to provide more fluid circulation around the quays and tents, and allow visitors to concentrate on their own sectors of interest. The temptation for any show aimed at end-users is to spread the net as wide as possible and be all things to all people, but MYS is taking the opposite tack by prioritising a specific visitor profile. Positive feedback from exhibitors and partners following MYS 2018 suggests this strategy is already having an impact. The slight drop in overall attendance (2% in 2018 down on 2017) reflects the drive towards lower densities around the port, which results in a more rewarding experience for prospective clients. Indeed, brokers and builders spoke of a higher number of visitors seriously intending to buy or charter.
We inform you that our offices will be closed from August 3rd to 25th. Have a nice summer break.
A new and fascinating interior design project in Florence. For the occasion of the 90th anniversary of Luisa Via Roma Claudio Nardi intervened with a transformation of the Florentine boutique on the wave of "Good Vibrations". The new scene is based on vibrations and on the theme of black and white, absolute, abstract, timeless, a symphony of geometric textures, now harmonious, now pressing and hypnotic, now crossed by golden flashes, solid and transparent surfaces that intersect in a dance that accompanies an exciting continuation of the urban walk. The architectural elements, the decorations and the materials become graphic elements that dress the space: the carpet becomes elegant and designed pavement, the arches of the windows that flank it become ethereal and transparent scenes of an imaginary theater, all inspired by the decors of the tradition of Architecture, Art and Craftsmanship of the 900, which chase and intertwine in a kaleidoscopic space, in a subtle tribute to Carlo Scarpa and Giò Ponti and to the great Masters of modern architecture. In this installation you will find furniture and accessories designed by Claudio Nardi Architects and manufactured by Marioni
The earth is made up of 70% of water. All human activities have a significant impact on the well-being of the ocean and consequently of our entire planet. Every individual can contribute to save the ocean by practicing simple but virtuous actions. One Ocean Foundation develops specific projects that help safeguard marine life. These projects are directed to individuals, organizations and companies. The first of these projects is the Charta Smeralda: a document aimed to safe- keep the ocean. The Charta Smeralda is an ethical code of conduct that serves to share and actuate principles that aim to safeguard the marine environment. It is a document that raises awareness among individuals, stakeholders and communities, of the urgency to resolve problems related to the marine ecosystem, with the aim of defining concrete and immediate solutions. Let’s sign the document as our company did and act for the protection of our seas. More information on www.1ocean.org

A global platform for truly top-notch products with the emphasis on innovation. Marioni will exhibit at Pav.1 H21 as usual, showing the new PALM and WING lines of the Notorious collection. The Salone Internazionale del Mobile is split into three style categories: Classic, which draws on the values of tradition, craftsmanship and skill in the art of making furniture and objects in the classic style; Design, products that speak of functionality, innovation and boast a great sense of style and xLux, the section devoted to timeless luxury re-read in a contemporary key. A range of goods that combines quality and technology, shaped by the creativity of the leading sectoral companies, practised at developing their businesses by investing each year in innovative products and home furnishing solutions. The many exhibitors along with the thousands of products being unveiled for the first time confirm the Salone Internazionale del Mobile’s enormous value as an international showcase for creativity and a forum for industry professionals, with more than 370,000 attendees on average, every year, from 188 different nations.
Marioni with Notorious confirms his graphic and strongly identitary research, proposing once again collections rich in materials and quotations that bring together the Hollywoodian imagination and the contemporary. Several mentions that the Arch. Piero Angelo Orecchioni quotes in these new creations: from the majestic scenographies of the Egypt of vintage movies such as Cleopatra by Cecil B. Demille, which mixes the archaic to signs, very modern at that time, connected to the American Art Deco, to the particularity of this in including tropical and symbolic elements in the decorations, to Brutalism up to the Postmodern current of the eighties. The "Palm" collection includes a series of home accessories that bring to mind the seaside architecture of the years ’30-’40. As in an ancient writing code, geometric signs in plan become precious modular ceramic elements, brass bands, lacquered wood tops and glasses that composed and overlap creating tables, consoles and bookcases of different heights and sizes, customizable in the finishes and in colors. "Wing" is a modular line of upholstered furniture composed of separate elements and an enveloping shape with a strongly characterized back that opens and welcomes the seat like under the protection of a large wing, also this as a recurring element of the American Art Deco iconography. The artisan mastery is able to overlap distinct elements that allow you to create different and unexpected combinations of colors with customized fabrics.

For the next six months some products selected from our catalog will be exhibited in the showroom of Via Roma in Florence. #luisaviaroma #pittiuomo #marioni #notoriouscollection
