Project Description

Natural Talent is a documentary made for the Salone del Mobile 2017 created with Eligo Studio, which collaborated with 20 students enrolled at the Creative Academy design school in Milan.

Inspired by wood, the noble material, which combines creativity and craftsmanship, the students have created an original collection of wooden artefacts. Made with two of the oldest and most noble manufacturing techniques: cabinetmaking and turning.

These fascinating and versatile techniques, are interpreted by the designers in a contemporary key and come to life in new creations thanks to the skilled hands of two important Lombard art masters: Giordano Viganò, well-known cabinetmaker, and Carlo Meloni, master of turning and point of reference for designers and companies due to his expertise in woodworking.

FrameDealer documented the project by taking care of the shooting and production of a short film to illustrate the combination of master wood craftsmen and a young generation of designers.

The Natural Talent exhibition exceptional setting was the Poldi Pezzoli Museum, one of the most beloved places of culture and art.
