Clothes—stand by De Pas, D’Urbino, Lomazzi
The Cessato Allarme clothes—stand, created in 1986 by the De Pas, D’Urbino, Lomazzi studio, put into production by Poltronova in 1991, reveals its source of inspiration in its name [“Alarm Over!”]: the alarm—trumpets placed on light poles during the last war. Made of metal, available in bright colours, there is nothing warlike about it, indeed it has a cheerful pop touch, emphasised by the unusual name which, as Paolo Lomazzi suggests, in this beginning of winter 2020, is a metaphorical call to “go and blow the trumpets again”.
