3 August 2016 Slamp at the
Rio 2016 Olympics

Slamp has been chosen amongst the best of Made in Italy to light up the exclusive Casa Italia, the luxurious, breath-taking temporary home to the Italian athletes in Rio di Janeiro during the 2016 Olympics. Chantal, La Lollo, and Mille Bolle, designed by (respectively) Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas, Lorenza Bozzoli, and Adriano Rachele, are the collections that will be displayed. Each exhibits the perfect fusion of architectural and sartorial expertise, as well as the latest artistic trends, realised in Slamp’s state-of-the-art, exclusive, patented materials. These examples of ‘Handmade in Italy’ will illuminate the home in Brazil starting August 3.


Ricardo Menescal, an architect whose ‘Horizontal’ project included iconic objects and architecture that represent Italian artisan culture in Brazil, was responsible for Casa Italia’s futuristic design. The structure is located on a bluff, overlooking the ocean. Beatrice Bertini and Benedetta Acciari (Galleria Ex Elettrofonica), along with Claudia Pignatale (Galleria Secondome), are continuing this legacy, narrating Italian design and art through select companies, including Slamp, to create an empathetic, visionary and open approach that demonstrates the union between Italy and Brazil.


The collections that Slamp has chosen for the Casa Italia interior are those that represent the perfect synthesis between Italian handmade tradition and what Made in Italy abroad. La Lollo (design by Lorenza Bozzoli), will illuminate the athlete’s bar, conjuring images of the divas and thinkers of another era thanks to their form and finishes. Mille Bolle (design by Adriano Rachele) will bring playful reflections and refractions to the lounge, and the hall will host the Chantal Blue (design by Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas), which evokes the same movement of transparent waves pulling back from the shore. Much like the waves from the ocean that separates us only a little while longer from the South American Olympic Games.
