Frank&Frank, born by the experiences of Roberto De Gregorio and Marcella Molinini (graphic designer and fashion designer). The works of this parters show a mix of their different skills connected by an adventure that led them to explore city maps. Always curious and passionate they develop this project to transforming cartography into artworks, to reinterpret city maps in a urban key and opening new perspectives to see the places where we live.
Frank&Frank thanks to Venice Design Week started to work in 2019 with the bookshop of Modern and Contemporary Art Museum – Ca’ Pesaro. They are presenting a “Small SkinCities map colored” like souvenir of Venice.
In 2019 they are exhibiting in JW MARRIOTT VENICE RESORT & SPA from middle of September to the end of October.
You can visit the exhibition and the hotel island getting the free shuttel boat from piazza S. Marco.
The exhibition is open every day from
or with the cooperation of Venice Design Week
F&F city maps are reinterpreted incising the leather with laser; each city is a geometric work which allow a meeting between daily life and art. They are manually signed (hot stamp with terrestrial coordinates) with experience and passion, to make each numbered piece, unique and unrepeatable. All leathers have own history and a beauty to show, they are carefully recovered from different parts of the world. #SkinCities
