Eiffelgres on the cover of “The squirrel project”, a book published by Edizioni Corraini

Architect Mauro Bellei has been Eiffelgres artistic director for some years now, and this is made perfectly clear in the volume “Il progetto dello scoiattolo” (“The squirrel project”), published recently by Corraini, Bruno Munari’s publisher. An interview with Beppe Finessi published in the book reveals a number of similarities between Bologna architect Mauro Bellei and Bruno Munari, the figure who inspired him to create his prestigious “PillArt” collection, which Eiffelgres presented in September 2011.
Our brand plays an important role in the book; the image appearing on the cover represents an idea Bellei came up with for Eiffelgres.
Beyond its cover, “Il progetto dello scoiattolo” reveals that every Eiffelgres project is accompanied by in-depth research, whether it be the launch of a new collection or the way in which it is proposed. This may be seen in the reference to the “Sensible” collection launched in 2009, linking the production technology used to make porcelain stoneware with the effects created by light (pages 32 and 33), and in “Architetture di sassi” ("Stone architectures"), an iconographic representation Bellei designed to present and link natural stones and the Eiffelgres collections they inspire (pages 50 and 51), or the unusual experience of studying light fixtures for the “Elle” series combining porcelain stoneware with led lighting (pages 34 and 35).
