Design on Water Art Gallery


CTRLZAK Studio and JCP present water as a sensual element, life as the origin and womb of all things. Playing with transparency and reflection, water is a mirage that fuses art and design in an alchemical way.

To look, listen and sample are just some of the actions implemented through Waterness, a path of personal awareness and reconsideration of the value of water and our direct relationship with this.

The installation “Dolmlod” in the middle of the room is a table designed for JCP, displaying a multitude of glasses and decanters (“Level”) made of borosilicate glass of different sizes filled with water that drips from the ceiling. Waterness is completed with a tasting of different types of water.

The barman, as a conductor, directs the scene wearing an “Unseen” smock, a project created exclusively for LUISAVIAROMA which presents a series of kitchen accessories drawn from microorganisms invisible to the human eye but present in the water.


CTRLZAK is a hybrid studio that integrates different disciplines and cultures. The Italian-Greek founders, Katia Meneghini and Thanos Zakopoulos, are both artists and designers in their own right. CTRLZAK's creations feature an extensive research into tradition and culture create a hybrid future by learning from the past where irony and symbolism go beyond aesthetics and functionality.

The Brand

JCP is a new eclectic furniture brand that aims to change the design status quo in a revolutionary way. Brainchild of a radical think tank held in Milan in 2015, JCP was conceived by architect Livio Ballabio and is orchestrated by CTRLZAK studio. A fusion between art and design, the brand's creations blend classic and contemporary style in a surprising new way. JCP stands for inhaling the future, exhaling the past; spoiling the ticking of time by creating the impossible. Stories that give life to creations of worlds unseen. Transforming normality through (im)materiality, JCP’s universe is one of wonder and mystery.
