MILAN, Apr 2, 2010 / FW/ — A well-known supporter of the arts, Roberto Cavalli is sponsoring installations by the artist Laszlo LL Papp at the Roberto Cavalli Boutique at 42 Via della Spiga in Milan.
Coinciding with the 49th Salone del Mobile International Furniture show, which will be held in Milan from April 14 – 19, 2010, the installation will feature 5 unique artworks done in fine wood from the artist’s latest collection.
A native of Udine, Italy, Laszlo LL Papp, interrupted his engineering studies to devote himself fulltime to an in-depth exploration of the anatomical sciences. Driven by his creative impulses, he became an artist, his creations inspired by his anatomical studies.
For the past 8 years, Laszlo LL Papp has expressed his artistic vision through wood, with each of creations demanding lengthy production and done exclusively by hand; the artist working the wood and achieving its silken finish without altering its natural color.
Frame-like sculptures, wooden armour-like shells that wrap around, embrace and protect. Structures that support, inspire and free.
The Roberto Cavalli boutique will proudly display 5 works by Laszlo LL Papp, interacting with clothes and accessories from the Spring/Summer 2010 Collection:
Dresser in Italian Walnut with glass shelves, mounted on a chrome-plated steel base.
Cradle in Italian Walnut, mounted on a chrome-plated steel base.
