Tiche Synergia

Tiche and Creative People in Florence are pleased to announce the launch of Tiche Synergia, a new multi-faceted project highlighting contemporary craftsmanship, design and photography in Florence.

The spacious new atelier of the fashion brand Tiche will host a series of Florence-based artisans and designers, who will present site-specific installations using the materials and objects of their craft, alongside a special selection of works and products in conversation with the recent collections and mission of Tiche. In addition, between each artisan exhibition, Tiche will host the works of a photographer who will present a selection of images that have a relationship with the aims of Tiche Synergia, either by interpreting the installation of the previous artisan or with a recent body of work. Tiche Synergia invites the artisans and photographers to reframe the objects of their craft as works of art, looking beyond their value as commercial products, offering a space for experimentation, research and innovation.  

The Greek goddess of luck and chance, Tiche is also the protectress of cities and fortune, which perhaps holds a new resonance in the changing and often-unpredictable landscape of our current times. Emphasizing the opportunity for growth, experimentation and renewal, the project’s title, Tiche Synergia in fact reflects its central aims: to spark new ideas and connections between the artisans and designers of the city, and to envision the future of the city as one of innovation and collaboration.

On July 9th for the first edition of Tiche Synergia, master woodworker and furniture restorer Jane Harman will present Meraki, an installation of wooden objects and design pieces, which will be shown alongside a new jewelry collection inspired by the style lines of Tiche. The Greek word meraki, which describes the act of doing something with love, or putting oneself fully into one’s work, perfectly summarizes the practice of Jane Harman, who for more than 20 years has honed her craft in her busy bottega in San Frediano.
