_WDA - WilDesignArt

Location: Italy

My name is Giovanni Dal Cin, I'm an architect and I live and work in Varese, Italy. I design and realize upcycle design objects, furnishings and accessories, mainly using recycled pieces, old work tools, demolition building materials, beached woods and rusty irons. Testimonies of a skilful craft work now disused, or simple waste, I like to rethink them through a creative reuse. Since 2014 I have created the WDA brand WilDesignArt and through the project "Every thing is illuminated ...", I produce lamps and light installations, both as single pieces and in small series. Always starting from the recovery of objects that strike me, in terms of shape and materials, I am fascinated by the idea of ​​giving them a second chance, combining them with each other or adding new elements. I assemble them dry only with mechanical systems, without the use of glues, with particular attention to their future re-disposal. In this original expressive research, the insertion of light as a new function, in particular using LED technology, plays a dual role, of actualization and enhancement, overlapping with its immateriality to forms that, while remaining recognizable, always give surprising effects.
