Howtan Space

Howtan Re, bright Iranian architect and artist created years ago Howtan Space, factory and art gallery placed in Roma, at via dell’ Arco dei Ginnasi 5, in the area of Piazza Farnese. It’ s an ambitious project for who, like him, though the time spends, Rome always seems like the same. “ It’s dirty. It’s very beautiful. It’s static”. Not resigning himself to the decadency of city, which, beyond its many levels of criticality, embodies many unexpressed potentialities, he gave rise to a project focused on giving voice to the change, creativity and intercultural dialogue.

His idea is dynamic, which is enriched by a new space and talks about art as experience and lifestyle, l’ H LAB: a lounge bar design where arte, business and creativity joins with themselves. Artworks, perfumes, sounds and screenings draw an experiential journey, a genuine art tasting where the concept of art is linked to luxury as art of living. It’s a place to visit, where to stay and come back for creatives, curiouses, enthusiasts, hedonists and epicureans, who can also appreciate the work by smashing bar tenders – trained at the Flair Project Academy by Vincenzo Spenuso – along with exclusives products as the tribute collection to Andy Warhol by the renowned brand of champagne Dom Perignon.

 

 

HOWTAN SPACE DI HOWTAN RE: L’ ARTE COME ESPERIENZA E LIFESTYLE

 

Howtan Space

Howtan Re, brillante architetto e artista iraniano che ha creato anni fa Howtan Space, factory e galleria d’ arte ubicata a Roma, in via dell’ Arco dei Ginnasi 5, nei dintorni di Piazza Farnese. Un progetto ambizioso per chi, come lui, nonostante il passare degli anni vede Roma sempre uguale. “Sporca. Bellissima. Immobile”. Non rassegnandosi alla decadenza della città, la quale, malgrado le sue plurime criticità, racchiude in sé molteplici potenzialità inespresse ha dato vita a un progetto orientato a dar voce al cambiamento, alla creatività e al dialogo interculturale.

Howtan Re

Un’ idea dinamica, la sua, che si arricchisce di un nuovo spazio e parla di arte come esperienza e lifestyle, l’ H LAB: un lounge bar in cui arte, business e creatività convergono. Opere, profumi, suoni e proiezioni di disegni tracciano un viaggio esperienziale, un’ autentica degustazione in cui il concetto d’ arte si lega al lusso,quale arte del vivere. Un luogo da visitare, in cui sostare e ritornare, per creativi, curiosi, entusiasti, edonisti ed epicurei, i quali potranno apprezzare anche l’ opera di formidabili bar tender – che si sono formati presso l’ Accademia Flair Project di Vincenzo Spenuso – unitamente a prodotti esclusivi quali la collezione tributo ad Andy Warhol.del rinomato marchio di champagne Dom Perignon.

I recently visited along with my friend and companion of Epicurean interludes – thinking the delights, energies and suggestions have to be shared – Andy Fluon (eclectic individual who is the founder of art collective and music band Fluon, visual artist, singer and DJ) the concept store and art gallery Orsorama, placed in Milan, in Via dell’ Orso 14, in the area of Brera. Here I saw Matteo Bonelli, its bright and visionary creator, who gave rise to a place, a vibrant cathedral showcasing and selling artworks, clothing, accessories – ties, jewelry and scarves – and furniture connected to a specific theme, based on religion and its symbolism – as it appears in “Cult fiction“, the new exhibition -, reinterpreted under the sign of new-pop. But Orsorama it’s much more than this, as it also successfully makes concrete a new way of making fashion, closely connected to a concept arising from artworks. In fact the patterns featuring in the artworks that are exhibited are impressed in the t-shirts, scarves and pillows, limited editions that join the best Italian craftsmanship, high-end materials, a catchy design and an excellent manufacture, giving rise to luxury products. The most bright evidence of all that is the collection of scarves, a luxury product which is extremely contemporary, by Svetlana Schmidt, a genuine genius of textile printing, as it arises from her work talking about surreal suggestions, where pop visions combine to the holy imagery. Orsorama is a place to visit, to come back and enjoy art and fashion dialoguing between themselves.

ARTE & MODA A MILANO: LA MIA VISITA AL CONCEPT STORE & GALLERIA D’ ARTE ORSORAMA

Ho recentemente visitato insieme al mio amico e compagno di intermezzi epicurei – pensando che piaceri, energie e suggestioni siano da condividere – Andy Fluon (eclettica individualità che é il fondatore del collettivo artistico e band Fluon, artista, cantante e DJ) il concept store e galleria d’ arte Orsorama, sita a Milano, in Via dell’ Orso 14, nei dintorni di Brera. Ivi ho incontrato Matteo Bonelli, il suo brillante e visionario creatore che ha dato vita a un luogo, una vibrante cattedrale che espone e vende opere d’ arte, abbigliamento, accessori – cravatte, gioielli e foulard – e componenti di arredo legati a un tema specifico che si basa sulla religione e la sua simbologia – come appare in “Cult fiction”, la nuova mostra, reinterpretata all’ insegna dell’ arte neo-pop. Ma Orsorama è molto più di questo, poiché concretizza felicemente anche un nuovo modo di fare moda, strettamente connesso all’ arte. Infatti i motivi protagonisti delle opere d’ arte esposte sono impressi in t-shirt, foulard e cuscini, edizioni limitate che uniscono la migliore artigianalità, materiali di alta qualità, un design accattivante e una manifattura di eccellenza, dando vita a prodotti di lusso. La più lampante dimostrazione di tutto ciò è la collezione di foulards, un prodotto di lusso estremamente contemporaneo, di Svetlana Schmidt, un autentico genio della stampa su tessuto, come risulta dalla sua opera che parla di suggestioni surreali in cui visioni pop si fondono con l’ immaginario sacro. Orsorama, un luogo da visitare, in cui tornare e apprezzare arte e moda che dialogano tra di loro.
