Attilio Codognato is the current owner and fourth-generation heir of Casa Codognato, a world renowned jewelry boutique located near Piazza San Marco in Venice. Casa Codognato was founded in 1866 by Attilio’s great-grandfather, Simeone Codognato, and the family tradition of exquisite jewelry continues, also today, with Attilio’s work. Always evocative, his aesthetics reminds at “memento mori”. The shop features brooches, antique cameos, serpentine rings previously worn by such well-known members of the world of style as Coco Chanel, Diana Vreeland, Elton John, Elizabeth Taylor, Nicole Kidman.
People traverse the world to reach Casa Codognato, Attilio says, because “the Codognato style is a common reflection on death, and thus on life. [...] a message that celebrates the image of life.”

RGB is a work by Carnovsky, a Milan based artist/designer duo comprised of Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla, about the exploration of the “surface’s deepness”.
RGB designs create surfaces that mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus.
RGB’s technique consists in the overlapping of three different images, each one in a primary color. The resulting images from this three level’s superimposition are unexpected and disorienting. The colors mix up, the lines and shapes entwine becoming oneiric and not completely clear. Through a colored filter (a light or a transparent material) it is possible to see clearly the layers in which the image is composed. The filter’s colors are red, green and blue, each one of them serves to reveal one of the three layers.
RGB first installation has been shown during Milan Design Week at J&V showroom.
