DANTE Goods And Bads

DANTE GOODS AND BADS



Coming soon to DOMO. DANTE Goods And Bads create objects, products and editions with qualities above and beyond the substantial; associative qualities: emotions, habits, memories, tastes, aversions, the good, the bad, never the ugly.

Founded in the spring of 2012 by artist Aylin Langreuter and industrial designer Christophe de la Fontaine they share a profound love of the material world for all its pathos and beauty. Since DANTE’S birth, almost all products are handcrafted in the backyard of Milan. The famous “La Brianza” area north of the city is where the best craftsmen have clustered together with their little workshops to service the crazy needs of Milan’s creative industry. Anything anyone can think up can be made in La Brianza. To produce the El Santo chairs, for example, five workshops seamlessly work together, bleaching fur, cutting and sewing leather, welding and powder-coating the steel base. It is a magic place and any designer’s happy dream.

The design of every product made has always been shaped by the most prominent need of the society that created it.  More often than not, it was the search for the practical, for maximal usability.  DANTE Goods and Bads, however, senses another desire: Warmth and Contentment.  So the filter is to create a connection and create material objects that are not merely things, but favourites. Talismans which are everyday products that are both practical and useful, efficient but also emotional sharing attributes like humour, vanity, passion and comfort.

DANTE Goods And Bads for each collection also invite a “guest” to inspire, mentor and/or influence. Therefore, each collection’s products, design and presentation then emerge from some form of dialogue with that individual, institution or concept from his or her’s emotions, habits and memories.
