In search of a deeper understanding of life, I’ve always found myself being attracted to the idea of duality. Every aspect of life is created from a balanced interaction of opposite and competing, yet complementary forces. Duality to me is actually an essential part of life. The concept of good wouldn’t have existed without evil, neither would beautiful without the ugly. The cycle of life revolves around choices which are often and opposing. The very existence of life puts you constantly before duality, day after day, giving birth to creative inspiration. It is this harmony created by ups and down, the motion of yin and yang that generates life.
The objects I give life to, serve as a physical representation of this dichotomy. Each and every one of my designs symbolize a unity of oppositions both with their creative aesthetics and with their function. Handcrafted with natural wood and iron, Chiara de Rocchi designs portray an amalgamation of the natural opposites. To me these opposites create the beauty - merging two completely different structured and textured raw materials into a harmonious form.
Every single one of my designs carry deep meaning. It is not just about making things look appealing, or just about usability. It is about taking objects from being usable to enchanting, and then beyond that — to meaningful. I refer to them as functional art pieces, as they imbue a sense of fulfillment, whilst offering practicality. As a secret allegory to the concept of duality, I explore the idea of form vs. function.
These pieces aim to break preconceived notions about art and design, and bring uniqueness to any space they inhabit.
