The Dreamers is a coffee table in solid walnut, ash and oak. Composed of drawers, with black metal base. The idea is based on highlighting that object which is commonly the container of our dreams, in fact we usually use to say "the dream in the drawer".
Our aspirations, our desires, are placed in an ideal place of our mind and heart.
This place is commonly identified with a drawer and we use to say "the dream in the drawer" to indicate our deepest and most hidden aspiration.
I like to think that these dreams rest in this physical place that becomes their cradle.
Who knows if these dreams are still there or gone, who knows if they have come true or not.
And when the old furniture is thrown away, our dreams may still be there.
Dreams are not thrown away, they must not be given up for anything in the world.
Let's keep them and put them together so that they keep company and remind us every day that we have a good reason to get up in the morning.
Design by UTO BALMORAL, 2015
"I don’t believe in design. I believe in ideas"
Uto Balmoral it’s not me. Uto Balmoral is the first virtual designer, is a character provokingly created to be a product himself, a project of the designer. The idea comes from a personal consideration about the concept of the ‘Designer as griffe’.
The consciousness rising of this phenomenon gave birth, with declared irony, to the new character Uto. Uto traces his own image starting from the denial of himself in a game of particular balances between the will/necessity of appearing and hiding. The central thread of Uto’s work is the simple necessity to communicate, to provoke, to generate something into the public, to force out a smile, to cause thinking, to spark off a reaction, to start a process able to go over the aesthetical sense and functionality and centering in this the principal scope of his work. First of all his objects are communicating, they are places where you can find a clear message. I don’t believe in design. I believe in ideas.
Uto starts his career in 2011 with the exhibition Maybe at DAAL Gallery in Milan presenting the limited edition piecies Unbstab
