From September 17 to 25, 2022, on the occasion of the Lake Como Design Festival, Movimento Club presents the exhibition "In search of lost time", a collective of contemporary designers inspired by Marcel Proust’s acclaimed work by the same name, an impressive 4,000-page novel that took over 13 years to finish. The novel goes a long way into exploring the idea that our present and our future are a result of our past and that as much as we might not like to admit it, almost everything we do is influenced by our past decisions and actions.
‘In Search of Lost Time’ is a selection of pieces designed today, no more than that, pieces which reflect the designers and tell a story about their past experiences. A 21st century design set within a backdrop of neo-classicalism; the stark contrast between the two ideas asking questions of time, perception and reflection.
The exhibition is curated by Movimento Club, the set design conceived by Greta Cevenini and produced with the support of Italstand. “In Search of Lost Time” will be hosted in one of the striking pieces of architecture overlooking the first basin of Lake Como: Villa Gallia.
