THE LAB

THE IDEA AND IDENTITY

Muse is an artisan workshop that produces extra-ordinary objects and furnishings, literally out of the ordinary.

These are not simply furniture items that are interesting in terms of design, that is, with that mix of shapes, materials and colors that give life to new products, but true

evocative Muses: objects that possess a Soul

and that involve the buyer in a process of conscious

co-creation capable of restoring awareness to the act of

daily Living.

PAOLA GIACALONE

After my traditional studies in Architecture, I became interested in the energies of living and Sacred Geometry, attended Schools and Masters in Habitat Medicine, Feng Shui, and Geobiology, animated by the desire to deepen the study of environmental factors that have to do with the well-being of human beings.

Later, driven precisely by the aspiration to know in depth the Human-Environment-Well-Being relationship, I specialized in Bioarchitecture.

 

My eclectic training has allowed me to pursue a philosophy of 'Living that takes into account aspects related to emotional and sensory perception rather than more strictly functional or aesthetic ones.

 

The further landing place of my professional path has been the field of 'Conscious Living: training with arch. Caterina Locati (Evolutionary Design™ pathway/Evolutionary Profession course) earned me the Title of "T-Builder" - Facilitator Evolutionary Design™.

 

I see the home as a wonderful accomplice that we can all actively involve not only in our well-being but also in our personal growth and fulfillment!

WALTER CANGI

DESIGNER, PHOTOGRAPHER

Designer and photographer, I conceive design and photography as design processes and not as individual expressive signs. My photographic images are designed, composed and delivered to color at the time of shooting, I do not like post production.

 

I was 11 years old when with my first Polaroid I enjoyed photographing the furniture produced by my father's company and thanks to him I breathed creativity, art and began to smell the scent of Beauty. After studying art I joined the project team of the family business, becoming its project manager in a few years.

 

My love for design took off when (in the 1980s) I was able to attend, for several years, the Bologna studio of Dino Gavina, an undisputed design genius. From him I absorbed the art of curiosity and the power of creativity, learning to subvert the usual way of looking at things, objects and art

 

In 2009, my meeting with Paola Giacalone radically changed the way I work, enriching it with soulful and spiritual research that I integrated into my work as a designer and photographer. Today I strongly believe that it is necessary to push the limit of research further in the field of living so that everyone can learn to use their home as a tool for evolution.

OUR VALUES

1

THE THEME OF AWARENESS INHABIT

Muse Object Collections have precisely the intention of activating the perception of the space in which we live, inducing new lines of gaze, capable of inducing new reflections , new awareness, and leading us back to the wonderful experience of Dwelling.

Our mission is to encourage the vision of the home as a sacred place, creating objects that dialogue with the home itself.

The goal is to facilitate one's own evolutionary journey thanks in part to the complicity of one's Home.

WE GENERALLY DO NOT KNOW SPACE. WE INHABIT IT, WE WALK THROUGH IT, BUT WE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO LISTEN TO ITS VOICE, WE ARE NOT AWARE OF IT

We always try to use materials derived from production waste: fabric scraps, failed fabrics, stock funds, discarded ceramics and glass, ...

In this way we avoid taking more resources from Mother Nature and instead give new voice to scraps and stock that would otherwise have become waste.

The design intent is to revive Beauty from Beauty.

The social intent is to make a small contribution to the Circular Economy model, to make our planet a better place.

When there is a need for a material that we cannot source as waste, we always focus on respecting endangered, threatened, or limited resources and pay close attention to the sources of origin
