SALONE MILAN 2019
Dedece Skyscraper Project
It is strange that still today in 2014, Milan and Italy are 90% closed on Sundays.
When I lived here in the 80’s Milan was 99% closed
Os Gemeos worked on the first artwork intervention ” Efêmero ” ( ephemeral ) covering a total area of a thousand square meters, in the first “Outside the Cube” arts program at Pirelli’s HangarBicocca
Drawing inspiration from the shape and history of the Pirelli HangarBicocca building, where train locomotives were built during the twentieth century, as well as from the close proximity of railway lines running parallel to the site, Efêmero recreates the silhouette of a city train on a monumental scale
After welcoming over 350,000 visitors, Milan’s Salone del Mobile closed its doors on the 13th April, 2014
As preparations for next year’s Salone are undoubtedly already underway, the city braces for an even bigger event in 2015 that is anticipated to bring 20 million visitors to the design capital over the course of six months.
Expo Milano 2015, will take place from May 1 to October 31, 2015.
