In 2018 FENDI and Design Miami celebrate their 10-year anniversary. For the occasion, the luxury Maison presents The Shapes of Water, a project by Sabine Marcelis dedicated to rediscover one of the elements that FENDI cherishes most: water. Using water as a design tool, the designer magnifies its delicate beauty by realizing ten fountains inspired by ten of the most iconic symbols of the historical roman house with a base of natural stone.
To represent FENDI’s historical identity at best, Sabine Marcelis has created ten fountains made of cast resin, editing in each one of them a new version of the Maison’s symbol. All the fountains will be exhibited on a plinth of travertine, the same stone that is found in the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, an emblematic monument of the architectural history and FENDI’s headquarters.
