Swing – Dorsoduro 3136


Why an indoor swing? A leap back in time made us reflect on an archetypal game that was part of childhood for all of us and will continue to be a part of the lives of other children … and not only that.

The idea was to make a wooden swing using the worn planks of larch wood from the docks because, for us, wood is a special material. It’s durable and ever alive; it takes on beauty even as it ages.

Then, when it becomes a waste material that is no longer usable for its initial function, it can resume its useful life through new processes and details that give it a different aesthetic value, once again releasing previously unspoken visual languages.

The swing, a timeless game that never gets old, like wood, which for this project takes on the iconic shape of the life preservers found on the boats of Venice which, rigged up to a high point, can be installed in many contexts, both indoors and outdoors.

In wandering around with the purpose of discovering Venice and its jewels, we stumbled upon the painting L’altalena dei Pulcinella (Pulcinella’s Swing) by Giandomenico Tiepolo in which the commedia dell’artecharacter Pulcinella appears in 4 images, wearing the typical masks and swinging happily through the air.

So, we named the swing after the address of the Cà Rezzonico Museum that houses these curious Neapolitan masks which are guests in Venice, and are distinguished from other masks, not mentioning its marvelous Carnival.
