He graduated from "ISPMA" in Lissone and specialized in interior design with certifications in woodwork. Cazzaniga's career spans from managing technical departments at BESANA Mobili to leading research and development at BOFFI Cucine. In 1991, he established his own studio, "PIERGIORGIO CAZZANIGA DESIGN," in Lentate sul Seveso.

Helmut Lang

Kalkeriet Contemporary proudly presents the worldwide debut of a new edition of Helmut Lang’s iconic ‘Untitled’ rug, now resplendent in shimmering silver. This masterpiece, originally conceived in 2013, continues to captivate and inspire with its timeless allure and modern sophistication. The surface and finishing have been crafted through pile heights and material composition. Having made art throughout early adulthood, Lang established a fashion label under his own name in 1978, presented his first collection at the Centre Pompidou in 1986, and achieved global recognition in the field over the following two decades. During those years, Lang maintained his connection to art and undertook collaborations with Jenny Holzer and Louise Bourgeois, among others. He retired permanently from the world of fashion in 2005 to turn to his art full time. With material as departure point, Lang’s recent works explore the tensions between abstraction and figuration, and investigate space beyond the limitations of the human body through sculpture, reliefs, assemblage paintings and collages.
