Rippled Wave

Dilmos presents Daniele Papuli, an artist from Puglia who transforms paper into unique works of contemporary design. “Rippled Wave” is a theatrical and suggestive representation of water as a fluid element with infinite variation.

I proceed more like an explorer than like a designer, transferring and amplifying some images and suggestions of a design path undertaken on paper.
- Daniele Papuli

On the ceiling a wide white wave interspersed with light and in blue descends and crosses the streams of a source. The luminous infiltration reveals shadows, leaving space to the visitor who approaches the work and discovers it like a treasure. Light and ethereal sculptures describe water through its density, reflections, ripples, depths and vibrations that appear within Design on Water.

Within the scene created by Daniele Papuli appear a series of pieces that are part of the history of Dilmos made by various designers including the steel accent table Memories and chaise lounge Onda by Gianni Osgnach; the Turner armchair, Solidimolli cube and Jolli vase by Alessandro Ciffo; and the stool Abyss and ceramics by Roberta Colombo.

The Brand

DILMOS was founded in 1980 as an exhibition space for designer furniture. Since 1985, when Dilmos held an exhibition dedicated to Alessandro Mendini, Dilmos has chosen designers and articles that fully express a philosophy where each piece of furniture is a representation and at the same time a key to the designer's deeper thoughts.
