Taking as its starting point ancient stories of travel, the flying city leather maps project is inspired by the myth of the flying carpet of Indo-Persian tradition, where time and space
represent the mystical union between the finite and the infinite. In the Frank&Frank maps, a project by designers Marcella Molinini and Roberto De Gregorio, the evocative power, the colour, the shapes, and the texture of cities become both a geometric pattern and a way of telling stories. Drawing the cities is an artistic process that reduces the real image to an almost abstract structure: the result is a three-dimensional mosaic obtained through manual intervention on vegetable-tanned leather.
