After DANTE’S exciting founding years in Milan, we have now moved out of the city to the countryside. We slowed down, we settled down and we discovered the Great Wide Open. So, consequently, that’s where we take our 2014/15 Collection SCENES FROM THE PRAIRIE.
The Scenes From The Prairie products are inspired by the traditional, the bucolic and folkloristic. We’re looking at forgotten typologies as they can still be found in rural environments, to transform them, to create a dialog of cultural idiosyncrasies or to contrast them – with modernity or each other. Local patterns, regional objects, traditional craft. In this spirit, many of the objects from SCENES FROM THE PRAIRIE will be robust, weatherproof or even require assembly by hand.
DANTE’S inspirational guest for the SCENES FROM THE PRAIRIE Collection will be French illustrator Gustave Doré (1832-1883). With his mysterious and fairytale-like landscapes, Doré created the exact mood DANTE is trying to convey with this collection. By adding strangely artificial or entirely impossible elements such as lens flare or soft focus to his lush copperplate prints, Aylin Langreuter transforms them into something entirely new. These artworks are also part of the collection and, like SCENES FROM THE PRAIRIE itself, are meant to be a tribute to Doré’s forever fascinating work.
