Still Alive by Seletti is a practical and organized piece of art. It originates from Stefano Seletti's desire to work on wooden boxes that can be used for storage. Designer Antonio Arico' wanted to play with inanimate objects and natural shapes usually put together by famous and amateur painters. Antonio decided to use a “graceful detournement” and he wonderfully moved objects from one context to another by simply transforming common products and their uses to create new stories and feelings - always referring to pure and simple emotions. The result? An arrangement and combination of elements that you can use and play with. By juxtaposing their various shapes and shadows, the user receives a daily invitation to discover and explore them in a creative way. The design set includes a tall wooden pitcher, which can be used to hold rulers or scissors, a wooden vase which is divided into three parts for storing items like tacks and paperclips, a practical cup made of brass which can be used as a pen holder, a wooden pencil box to hide your precious, favourite pens, a porcelain bottle which can be seen as a simple mono vase to put a smiling flower in, a wooden pyramid-shaped box in emerald green with a retro “radica” effect to put your personal treasures in, and a magical magnifying glass sphereto help you read the passionate letters of your lover. All of these elements are highly functional, so 'Still Alive' will become part of your daily routine - ready to be used at your desk or living room table. Sensorial, tactile, and dynamic, every piece has its own carved-out place on a polygonal wooden base and you'll have the freedom and pleasure to move them around, tidying up or playing with all of their functions and materials.
