When one speaks of Cleto Munari, what often comes to mind is the image of an aristocratic collector of beautiful things without the objective of affirming projects, trends, or ideologies, but simply for the pleasure of seeing them, or better yet, of seeing them be born.
Because Munari has, at the same time, the intuition and the ample eclecticism of the big collectors, but his â€śbeautiful thingsâ€ť are not sought after in the shop windows or in some dusty warehouse but rather in the mind of his designer friends, explaining to them his ideas and intuitions and waiting patiently as they take form, first on drawing paper and then through a process similar to the distilling of liquor and consisting of comparing and correcting prototypes on the base of not only visual experience but tactile, weighty, and even acoustic in certain cases. Munari is, therefore, an â€śauthorâ€ť even if the author is missing a watch and, the manic cult of his own â€śpersonal styleâ€ť, is a â€ścolloquial authorâ€ť that utilizes the creativity of others without sacrificing his own, and reserves for himself, of the creation, two essential moments, even if normally rarely considered, the initial program and the self-critical journey that leads to the realization of the prototype.
Giuseppe Bucco and Flavio Cavalli obtained their artistic diploma at the Ceramic Art Institute of Nove, Vicenza, Italy, in 1975, and founded Lineasette in Marostica, Vicenza, in 1977, setting up their own research and the experimental laboratory. From the very beginning, they both focused on researching new stylistic forms and new productive techniques and proven ceramic materials. In 1987, the laboratory was moved to the spacious building located at Nove, a handicraft district and artistic core for ceramic production in Vento, Italy where Lineasette has spacious showroom offices.
