Buclicolo, 2024

BUCLICOLO arrives from ombelico (Italian for belly button) and is a mispronunciation of that word. Buclicolo functions as a large cabinet with 5 shelves for storage and as a canvas for a painting made by the two founders of OLDER Letizia Caramia & Morten Thuesen.

This piece was originally designed for storage of uniforms and homeware needs, but it also works as a painting, blurring the lines between design and figurative art, using a functional design as a canvas for a painting. The motif is made of blue clouds on an eggshell white base, creating a cluster of patterns for the viewer, which is open to interpretation. The painting has been made and filmed live on set.
