Earthquake lovers is a library consisting of a cut sheet as humans profiles who try to get in a kiss, but were unsuccessful. The cut is also a iron split caused by an earthquake, the parties “the lovers” trying in vain to be achieved.
Earthquake lovers is a very simple library with few processes but by the great impact. It appears as a precarious sheet close to breaking due to an accident but it is also a lovers kiss. The sloping shelves ensure that parties who are “falling apart” are held each other like a hug.
Mabele found originality and a project continuity with the current collection. These projects are developed with great detail, trying to combine in the best way the Mabele style with the market demands. – Enrico Deganello, Art director at Mabele
