LOCAL ICONS. EAST/WEST
"Leo Cycloid Tessella Alcantara" was produced to represent Singapore in the Local Icons. East/West project held at MAXXI the Italian National Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome, curated by Giulio Cappellini and Domitilla Dardi.
With Local Icons. East/West the designers Studio Job, Constance Guisset, Poetic Lab, Mischer Traxler, Gam Fratesi, Neri&Hu, Hans Tan, Michael Young, Poetic Lab and Cosmas Gozali interpret 10 capitals belonging to two geopolitical macro-areas through an object that embodies their essence in an imaginary dialogue between East and West.
Through a direct and indirect dialogue with the designers, Alcantara and MAXXI have staged a fresh cultural debate, an exchange of views between two different ways of life in contemporary metropolises, channelling these reflections into prototypes that are asked to capture the essence of the places.
