Tom Dixon’s 2013 Catalogue
“The transformation of an object, through the process of repair”
Milan’s La Rinascente department store, in collaboration with London’s Serpentine Galleries, showcased the installation “In a State of Repair” by Martino Gamper during the 2014 Design Week in Milano
If the Salone was about conspicuous consumption – and even more conspicuous design, then here by contrast was a different proposition about economy in an era of austerity, a notion of something being well-made implying use over time, rather than speedy abandonment.
Caesarstone presented Islands, with an interactive installation focusing on food and dining within the domestic environment at the 18th century Palazzo Clerici, in Milan’s Brera District.
They teamed up with London-based design studio Raw Edges Design Studio, UK, – to create a collection of seven living islands that offer both a new take on the materials and an innovative interpretation of the domestic space.
Transform fuses technology and design to celebrate its transformation from a piece of still furniture to a dynamic machine driven by the stream of data and energy.
Created by Professor Hiroshi Ishii and the Tangible Media Group from the MIT Media lab, Transform aims to inspire viewers with unexpected transformations, as well as the aesthetics of the complex machine in motion.
