Summary

Matteo Cibic (1983) is an Italian designer and creative director. He is known for his playing nature with objects, hybrid functions, and anthropomorphic and joyful shapes. His most known projects are the Domsai terrariums, 10A clothing range, VasoNaso research into objects, and the Tim Towers in Rome. His works are displayed in museums, institutions, and galleries worldwide. He has been awarded International Young Talent of the Year 2017 by Elle Decor.

Matteo Cibic has his own creative company based in Milan and Vicenza in Italy. His way of working is to delve into worlds that are far apart: like the world of the glamour of One backpack for Obag, or the world of contemporary eclecticism of the Bonotto Editions collections, the Italian manufacturer that produces clothing fabrics. Always driven by a curiosity for materials and artisan production techniques, Cibic — born in 1983 — feeds on influences from diverse disciplines and cultures. His ductile approach moves between marquetry in bone and resin, as seen in the Scarlet Splendour series of furniture, an Indian luxury brand, and sheets of iridescent textile-like those used to coat the TIM towers in Rome. Projects produced and designed in a “funny” way, an amusing and relaxed way of doing design.

Cibic plays with the transformation of materials, objects, and ideas by transplanting them from one context to another. REcently with Studio Blanco, Cibic designs the Marazzi Tile Club which was launched the new Grande 2018 collection of slabs at the recently concluded Milan Design Week.

Cibic also transforms the Marazzi showroom in Milan into a café, wunderkammer, lobby, and central lounge. The temporary hospitality experience takes inspiration from London’s gentlemen’s clubs – opening the traditionally exclusive concept ‘to anyone interested in ceramics as an artistic and architectural form’.

Conclusion

The latest projects of Matteo Cibic include creating an iridescent texture, sheathing Rome’s Tim Towers like a digital garment, and the VasoNaso research project with a limited number of tiles. Cibic divides his work in both art and design. Over the last 10 years, Cibic and his team have developed products and creative ideas for multiple international companies. He works indiscriminately with industrial processes and small artisans, for luxury brands, collectors and hi-tech companies.
