It is at different times and places, but with the coincidence of chance encounters on the shoreline of the water, element of the Company's inspiration, that the creative people of Gessi happened to meet the designer Giuseppe Maurizio Scutellà and the artist-philosopher Marsel Lesko. Both had independently been engaged to create – a graphic perception the former, a poetic sculpture the latter – that integrated states of physical, mental and spiritual balance.
If, as Marsel Lesko imports "nothing happens by chance", but everything has a fundamental attraction, it is the convergence of talks in these encounters about balance and a primary sensory wellness, that led Gessi to the creation of an art and functional object that enables people to find their own balance: an archetype that produces energy.
Marsel Lesko is a sculptor of spirit and a master of life; his art and his philosophy are based on the pursuit of a concurrence of outer and inner well-being.
The graphic sign of Giuseppe Maurizio Scutellà captures in a perfect correlation of curves and counter-curves, the essence of harmony and strength of balanced stones, translating the natural sculpture into a furnishing and functional archetype.
"The silent breath of stones taught me to breathe" says Marsel, and his charming omen for personal harmony is an ancient and ancestral practice: the search for seemingly impossible balance between stones.
This meditative exercise requires you to get lost in the action, to put yourself totally to the service of the stone, becoming the stone itself. Listening to silence lets our breathing tune with the universal balance of nature; you need to surrender to the flow of life in a moment out of conventional time, to finally find yourself at your own center, in balance.
Concurrence of outer and inner well-being. This state can be achieved through immersion of our soul, which is our own breath, into the natural breath of the universe,.
Our creation of balance becomes our own equilibrium, this reaffirms the principle of love which involves an exchange.
The touch of the object in its daily use conveys the energy that its shapes in a balance state contain.
A perfect correlation of curves and counter-curves, the essence of harmony and strength of balanced stones.
