Born in Taurianova, Reggio Calabria, on December 7, 1966, Alfonso Femia lives “leaving from and returning to” Genoa in a continu-ous journey between this city, Milan and Paris. He graduated from the University of Genoa, School of Architecture in 1992 and has been a member of the Italian Register of Architects of Genoa since 1994, the Register of Architects of Île-de-France since 1995, and the Register of Architects of Switzerland since 2014. He has taught Architectural Design Didactics at Kent State University in Flor-ence and at the Universities of Genoa and Ferrara Schools of Architecture. He founded 5+1 in 1995 and created 5+1AA in 2005 and the 5+1AA Parisian agency in 2007. He won several international competitions and has been featured in international magazines. He is visiting professor in major Italian and international universities. In 2015 he founded 500×100 and created 500x100Talk, the city as a dialog tool, a place of meetings and exchanges on the theme of the city itself, structured in two formats conducted together with Giorgio Tartaro: the SetTalk in Milan and the CityTalk in the main European and Mediterranean cities. He develops a “research on matter” that leads him to collaborate in design projects with international companies and with AFdesign*; he develops themes tied to ceramic, to light, wood, glass, cardboard and biodynamic cement. The three-dimensional development of ceramic and its application in architecture yields products that characterize the recent residential complexes in Paris and Brescia and the new headquarters of the BNL/BNP Paribas in Rome. Together with artist Danilo Trogu and his magical poetics, he develops a “Mediter-ranean bestiary” in ceramic that animates the Marseille Docks, the OGR in Turin and the residential complex of Asnieres-sur-Seine in Paris. In 2017 he changes the name of 5+1AA in AF517, i.e. Atelier(s) Alfonso Femia and creates “L’Entre Deux”, a format for the in-depth analysis on the metamorphosis of the city. He loves odd numbers, the South and a whole crew of young men and women who since 1995 believe in this “journey” aimed at exploring and getting to know the world through architectural project and through meetings with the cities, all with a smile and with a new travel companion – “The Whale and Her Star”. A journey within a journey
Arthur Simony is a thoughtful, soft-spoken man. But above all, he is impassioned. His story begins in Brussels at the age of 17. Si-mony begins working with Street Art interventions that allow him to develop and grow his passion. His stroke has matured gradually with the formalization of the gesture. Arthur Simony orients his work on writing. His poetics use the word and the story as expressive element. The word is more than an inspiration: it is his way of freeing himself form pain and suffering, accessing a new road toward happiness. In this way, Simony uses a phrase or sometimes just one word to create strong and poetic works.
Love, Realism, Imagination. 3 vortices for Cobra. Writing, words – often free-standing and/or alone – their compo-sition into poetry, into a text, are one of the worlds that accompany me year after year in a deep exploration of how just one word caches, hides, reveals different worlds for each one of us, worlds that nonetheless put us into contact with others. Today, writing and words are not the elements we linger on most. But we must do so. We must stop and do so. I met Arthur Simony by chance thanks to Antoine Vernholes during a wonderful night among friends in Paris. His work immediately struck me for its apparent simplicity and the depth of every gesture that goes into build-ing each word. The hand is the part of the body closest to our heart and it is guided by an instantaneous dialogue between the mind and the soul. When it writes, or when it writes by drawing, the hand opens doors into imaginaries and realities that mingle and merge, that guide and disorient us, that accompany us in the world. Emiliana Martinelli kindly invited me for this important event to be part of a family, to think about a personal revisitation for the Cobra. I immediately thought that the theme had to be something more than just graphic, chromatic…, there had to be a tie with the very same topics that the Cobra suggests – a world, a globe, a movement, a rotation, a sort of vortex, a relationship with its user. So three words came to mind: love, realism, imaginary. These three words have always been part of my life but they belong to many people, too, and I thought they could create vortices thanks to the hands of Arthur, and accompany us with the Cobra into our secret soul, into our imagination, into our reality of love.
SWIVEL TABLE LAMP, DIRECT LIGHT. CONSISTING OF TWO PRINTED BODIES MADE OF RESIN. THE LOWER BODY ROTATES ON THE STEEL MADE BASE BELOW AND IS CONNECTED TO THE UPPER BODY BY MEANS OF A CENTRAL JOINT THAT ALLOWS THE 360° ROTATION. INSIDE REFLECTOR MADE OF WHITE PAINTED ALUMINIUM.
