Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba


Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba

Born in 1976 in Massa Lombarda (Ravenna) but a resident of Cesena for many years, artist and designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba studied at the Severini Art Institute and the Academy of Fine Arts in Ravenna. His artistic training influenced an approach to design in which creativity and industrial production are constantly intertwined. The fundamental elements of Malerba's stylistic language are irony and nature - two aspects of his imaginative universe populated by fantastic, dreamlike, extravagant and surreal creatures. The relationship between people and nature is one of the most recurring themes in his work, particularly in his sculpture, whether large creations such as the gigantic giraffes in the self-produced collection She's in Love but She Doesn't Know It Yet, or small objects like the famous Monkey Lamp and Mouse Lamp made for Seletti.

Love makes people crazy, everyone knows that.‎ But what is going to happen when Cupid’s arrow hits a 4- meters-high giraffe? Marcantonio’s visionary sketches answered to that by creating Giraffe in Love, a dreamy giraffe holding a classic Marie-Thérèse style chandelier.‎ Giraffe in Love Outdoor is a giraffe in the size of an authentic young giraffe, suitable for outdoor settings, thanks to the wind and water-resistant chandelier.‎

"I imagined a dreamlike scene, a dreamy giraffe that goes for a walk with a chandelier in its mouth, as enchanted she illuminates the road that runs, she has head in the clouds because she's in love.
'She’s in Love but She doesn’t know it yet' because the giraffe has the heart far away from its head!"
