Stefano Cassetti is a conceptual designer with a background in fine arts and industrial design. He uses contemporary art disruptively to investigate social behavior, culture, instinct and perception.
Interested on how creativity has to deal with irony, censorship and morality, Cassetti thinks objects as a way to discover our hidden desires but also viceversa. His aim is answering hidden need with a smile-solution, pumping poetry into purpose-led object, constantly grabbing surrealism through minimalism.
His works as artist-inventor-designer are constantly placed on the edge between art and design, in order to transform the mundane and ordinary into something surprising and reflection-provoking.
Stefano Cassetti likes the words: downshifting, randomly drawn democracy, permission-free, site specific & location independent.
His heroes are Joseph Beuys, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Joan Brossa, Roman Signer, Markus Schinwald, Julien Berthier, Atypyk.com, Dominic Wilcox, Erwin Wurm.
