Giuseppe Canevese Cabinet

The Crepax Kadhorna Modern Cabinet was designed by Giuseppe Canevese for Ennezero in Italy. The pieces shown here feature the artwork of graphic artist Guido Crepax (1933-2003), who was hugely influential in the development of European comic art in the second half of the 20th century. His most famous storyline, featuring the character, 'Valentina', was created in 1965. This series was very much in the spirit of the 60s, incorporating eroticism, and psychedelic, and dream-like storylines. In Crepax's work, many references are made to the works of 20th century 'Avant-Garde' artists, such as René Magritte, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Piet Mondrian, Roy Lichtenstein, and Andy Warhol.

Art and Design have a common datum which qualifies all their expressions. That is to be both an extension of the Creation. Art and Design try to reach their aim following different paths. Art is following the mind, Design the body. Art follows the imagery, it may be individual or collective, it goes through tortuous ways, sometimes dividing times. Design follows the body, it serves it, it enlarges it, it supports it, it supplies it with objects which try to make man's existence more simple. Nevertheless body and mind form a unique thing where Art and Design meet.
