Collecting is a term that can be applied as much to material things as to unreal concepts. Wunderkammer is here the worthy representative of what the spirit of a collector can look like, somewhere torn between objects of reality and dreams of possession. A single location with no access which, in the case of Studiopepe, includes prototypes, one-of-a-kind pieces, limited editions and objects that the duo enjoys collecting throughout their research process for a project.

 

Indeed, the Milanese studio considers that the propensity to collect is undeniably part of creation, that the starting point of all inspiration and guidelines of a concept has a close relationship with the particularity of an object, its originality, the place where it has been seen or discovered. An object can be many things, including unbelievable materials waste. This starting point allows Studiopepe to define an object of study and to know in advance the formal idea on which the project must lead.

 

"The object is a mirror; the images it reflects follow one another without contradiction. The mirror is perfect because it reflects not true images, but those desired." , The System of Objects, J. Baudrillard

To the objects of Wunderkammer, is a sort of collector's Pandora's box in addition that, once opened, gives free rein to an overflowing imagination... This place is imaginary but most of its objects are real in the life of Studiopepe, and shows an organic architecture and materials that are alternately rough and silky. The whole place features a very contemporary universe but whose outlines draw inspiration from a kind of secret cave, or even in the far recesses of the mind, where anyone could accumulate his or her treasures and objects of desire.

 

In general, images of Terzo Piano also reflect the eclectic and sophisticated aesthetics of the Italian agency, particularly in the combination of opposing materials, circuitous architectural codes and wall niches inspired by the work of Scheggi. This curiosity cabinet version 2020 or imaginary store, houses art objects and collector's furniture that share sculptural finery and by unveiling this space, the duo truly delivers an intimate part of themselves and their process as collector-creators, with a strong emotional dimension, perhaps even more important than a simple interview.

 

"The collection is a triumph of the passionate tension towards possession, whereby the daily prose of objects becomes poetry, an unconscious and triumphant discourse.", affirms Baudrillard.
