Mali Weil (Elisa Di Liberato, Lorenzo Facchinelli, Mara Ferrieri)
From the creative direction of art-based brand Mali Weil (Elisa Di Liberato, Lorenzo Facchinelli and Mara Ferrieri) comes Animal Spirits – a collection of personalisable limited edition products and an imaginative experiment influenced by the narrative and symbolic nature of mythology. Hosted in a private Venetian residence exclusively for DESIGN.VE, Mali Weil presents their latest collection: Aphrodisia. Each piece of the collection constitutes a fragment of a wider dialogue in which the spaces, rituals, and private actions inside the home become moments to empower the body, catalysing new visions in which political imagination becomes an erotic act. Animal Spirits integrates design and artistic research with performance and political reflection, developing the idea of the ‘performative object’ – an object capable of merging practical function and narrative function in order to prolong the ephemeral duration of the performance in which it is presented.
