GHOST, AN ICON TO CELEBRATE AND ENJOY. IN A “MINI” VERSION TOO. Fiam has always focused on the aesthetic and poetic value of the objects created, and celebrates intuition and brilliance by commemorating the thirtieth anniversary of the armchair, presented for the first time at the Salone del Mobile in Milan in 1987, winning the prize for the most innovative product.
With an initiative aimed at recounting the amazing story of Ghost, of the excellence it epitomises, and the cultural and social commitment of the company, the designers, who collaborate with Fiam, were each asked to participate in the creation of two Ghosts in Mini versions, to reinterpret and decorate by hand with the paint colours chosen by Cini Boeri.
Thirty-seven renowned Italian and foreign designers took part: Archirivolto Design, Bartoli Design, Dante O. Benini and Luca Gonzo, Luca Casini, Valerio Cometti, Angelo Cortesi, Marzia and Leo Dainelli, Nicola De Ponti, Fabio Di Bartolomei, Rodolfo Dordoni, Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas, Chafik Gasmi, Leandro Gerussi and Carlo Sartoris, Roberto Giacomucci, Makio Hasuike, Massimo Iosa Ghini, Setsu and Shinobu Ito, Patrick Jouin, Danny Lane, Marta Laudani and Marco Romanelli, Vittorio Livi, Lucidi Pevere, Xavier Lust, Francesco Mansueto and Luca Lo Bianco, Ilaria Marelli, Matteo Nunziati, Satyendra Pakhalé, Roberto Paoli, Christophe Pillet, Prospero Rasulo, Paolo Rizzatto, Roberto Semprini, Studio Klass, This Weber, Enrico Tonucci, Elio Vigna, Marcel Wanders.
A project that represents much more than a thirtieth anniversary because it reflects the values and the care that Fiam has towards the territory: of the two Mini ghosts decorated by each designer, one will be auctioned in a charity event organised by the company with the proceeds going to initiatives supporting the people affected by the earthquakes in Central Italy. Ghost, an immortal product which has entered the collective imagination, demonstrates once again how current it is, becoming the focus of the celebration of beauty and creative genius.
The Mini Ghosts decorated exclusively for the project, created in collaboration with top companies like AGC Glass Europe, Biesse Group, Fiandre and Oece, will be displayed on the new Fiam stand, in Hall 5, Stand B11, during the Salone del Mobile.
