The excellence of Nature meets the excellence of Man ..

Literally Sympòsion means "drinking together". In its classical exception, during a Sympòsion, art constituted a part of the banquet like dishes and drinks served to diners.
At this banquet, artists and important personalities were invited to express themselves on certain concepts. Inspired by this pleasant and noble custom, Acqua Chiarella has launched her very personal Sympòsion; an open project in which, over the years, the "guests" of Chiarella will express themselves on two points to which the company is particularly attached:
its tradition and its history.

These are the values that Acqua Chiarella supports and spreads in Italy and in the world.
The SYMPOSION project is born from this corporate attitude.

Fabrizio Musa, (Como 1971) lives and works between Como and New York. Since his artistic debut, in the second half of the nineties, he has contaminated the more traditional painting techniques with new technologies.

Acqua Chiarella for 100X100 ACHILLE
a new format and a "Design Week Limited Edition"
to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Achille Castiglioni

The Limited Edition created in collaboration with the Achille Castiglioni Foundation is part of Sympòsion, the Art Edition project signed Acqua Chiarella in which the Excellence of Nature (Water) and the Excellence of Man (the Art) meet.
A label to wish Happy Birthday to the great Master!

Chiarella presents the first design project, a new format - 0.66L - and a "Design Week Limited Edition" that commemorates Achille Castiglioni on the occasion of the centenary of his birth.

A tribute to the figure of the Architect and Designer who had a genuine passion for the objet trouvè, the anonymous objects of which the windows of his study are full, today archive-museum, seat of the Achille Castiglioni Foundation.

For the 100X100 ACHILLE exhibition, organized by the Achille Castiglioni Foundation, 100 of the most important designers and architects in the world have been invited to "bring as a gift" to the Foundation an anonymous object of daily use accompanied by a personalized greeting card.

Also Chiarella wanted to contribute to this beautiful initiative bringing as a gift one of the most widespread anonymous objects in the world: the water bottle.

And the label is the greeting card for Achille Castiglioni's 100 years.

The label has been redesigned starting from one of the most famous phrases of the brilliant Architect and Designer: "If you're not curious, forget it", an invitation to "physically" enter the three-dimensional label and discover the profile of Achille Castiglioni, imagine and ask the story of this water bottle just like he did in front of everyday objects.

The Limited Edition created in collaboration with the Achille Castiglioni Foundation is part of Sympòsion, the Art Edition project signed Acqua Chiarella in which the Excellence of Nature (Water) and the Excellence of Man (the Art) meet.
