About TANA-Gaetano Avitabile : After several years working in itnerantional renowned architectural and design agencies,Gae Avitabile founded his own design studio in 2010. He works on a large renge of projects, from industrial design to space design project. The collaborations and project diversity lead him to see design in global way of thinking. He focuses on simplifying the interactions between humans and space or objetc. His projects are rooted in a responsible approach deeply concerned by the reliability and sustainability of its creations.
STATEMENT OF ART:
I'm an architect fascinated by the architecture that took expression
in our past and I am very interested by the contemporary
that would not exist without the former.
I've always been intrigued and fascinated by the world of design and
graphics, live hungry and thirst to know new ideas, new experiences
and feed my world with them.
After graduating in architecture I built a training program whose
ultimate goal was to understand the true meaning of "project", as an
idea comes to life.
This initiative was very significant for me because it made me
understand how complex was the implementation to realize the idea.
After several experiences in Italy and Europe, I decided to continue
my own path, creating Tana, (the architecture/idea concept studio that
I manage).With Tana, I created an imaginary laboratory from which there is space and time to express the idea of pure deisgn and architecture.
From the idea one can continue with rapid prototyping as a set of techniques designed to develop a prototype.
The making of a "concrete" model allows you to check the size, design, geometry, perform simulations.
Delivering the vision of a project from the virtual to the "real" prototypes are placed as an alternative and a complement of technical drawings,
renderings and animations.
In the Lab Tana, I am living a collaboration with engineers, designers, architects, philosophers, winemakers, where each specialization
helps to create new ideas that make our lives worth living and it is open to everyone.
