Tokujin’s “Mirage” comprises a series of different segments, each coated with a reflective surface.
Rotated a little to the right, or a little more to the left, the mirrors can be mounted alongside one another and as such capture far more light and create a wider range of spatial impressions than a simple, flush mirror ever could.
The exhibition Arts & Foods. Rituals since 1851 ( running from Apr 9 to Nov 1, 2015 ) is the first section of the EXPO 2015 to open, as well as the only thematic area of the Expo located in the center of Milan.
The exhibition is housed in the Triennale di Milano gallery spaces in via Alemagna, extending over 7,000 square meters internally and utilises external garden courtyard spaces as well
The exhibition curated by Germano Celant, was inspired by the main theme of the EXPO Milan 2015, “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”, is aimed to investigate the manifold relationship between food, its rituals and different means of artistic expression over a long period – from 1851 ( the year of the first World Exposition in London and the starting point of modernity ) to present day.
#Emojimilan, was an interactive live project based on the concept of real-virtual contamination, where visitors to la Rinascente were encouraged to take selfies in front of the two windows of the annex, and post them on social networks.
The Chameleon and The Souq is a tribute that celebrates a form that evokes the “snake”, the emblem of the Visconti family and symbol of Milan.
Paola Lenti’s creations reveal careful study of materials and their composition, together with the continuous dialogue with natural materials needed to host a welcoming space for Salone visitors.
Paola Lenti invited LAN ( Laboratorio Architecture Naturali ) to construct a natural setting using just bamboo and synthetic rope – to creatively display Paola Lenti’s beautiful Taiki outdoor lamps
Design Academy Eindhoven presented “Eat Shit” at the Salone del Mobile – the first exhibition of the new department Food Non Food, directed by Marije Vogelzang
‘Eat Shit’ is a definition of the human condition. You eat, you shit, you eat, you shit, and then you die.
Food is life. Input leads to output. So it makes sense to also examine one of foods stinkiest consequences – shit and waste.
Shit is your print-out, the great revealer of a person’s health and culture.
