An immersive installation designed for Monumental Club, Barcelona. A moment that celebrates “time” as the essential experience for a stronger perception of the other five senses. We create something that could separate visitors from the surrounding “noise” through a Pause Space.
An atmospheric installation produced for the music festival 18/7001, Berlin. A space inside a space to activate and stimulate a visual impact and a tactile experience. Something that could invite to forget about the outside through a inner and deeper exploration.
Places en relation, is a project developed by Institut de Recherche en Design CIVIC CITY and coordinated by Ruedi and Vera Baur.
In a world where a large majority of the population lives and works in cities, the role and responsibilities of them are bigger every day. In this prospect, Civic city decide to focus on the “public space”, like a new type of proximity common area, during the 2017-18 year.
We propose to use the concept of Appropriation to address all the public spaces. The implicit methodological aim is to use a single conceptual approach to reveal the very significant differences between the ten squares.
Our concept includes creating three regular square matrixes using the same type of balloons (black modelling balloons of 15x116 cm) and following the same constructive system to generate 3 atmospheres.
These matrixes will be related to their specific location according to the forces that come with the area. The way to achieve these atmospheres is slightly changing the way of placing the balloons and making them react to the different forces. Playing with colored surfaces (ceiling and water) and balloons, inflated with helium or air, we can play with inverted gravity.
One And Many Lines is a site specific installation to experiment and investigate different layers of complexity of a basic line drawned on paper.
Line is not conceived only as a gesture on paper but on paper become a strong expressive material itself. By taking a microscope picture of a line sample, other realities and other path of interpretation are revealed.
To get continuity and linearity to the investigation we re - produced the line with 500 A4 paper sheet on a 12 mt. white wall. People were then asked to freely draw an interpetation of the line’s bigger picture that appeared in front of them.
Master course degree students in Temporary Space Design together with MACBA present Slow down, Stop and Stay. Placa dels Angels has become one of the most attractive spot for skate and breakdance competition from all over the world.
As the years pass the relation between neighboorhood and the activities that take place every day have been tense. Locals says that the massive affluence and noise is gradually taking over other kind of pubblic space appropriation.
Our project propose four different fields of table to be freely used by everyone and for any kind of appropriation.
Taking a room conceived to have something in its centre, “Tribute” responds with a simple intent: invite visitors to reflect on the rooms past use and generate a new temporary atmosphere that plays with it’s existing architectural quality.
To be placed in the main hall of Galleria Milano my intention was to intervene with something "simple", with something that doesn't contrast with the beautiful old surrounding of the room. The tilted angle of the structure help to have a better view of the video when you'll enter the Installation.
This project was developed during my second year of University under the coordination of Arch. Elisa Taddei. An housing solution for a family of 5 people in the Favelas of Mumbai city, that could includes a working solution for the family, in order to help the sustainability of the family. Pulleys, placed under every floor level, will be used as exhibition support for the selling of carpets, and as wall partition between floors.
The design studio Gandiablasco held the 12th International Outdoor Furniture Design Contest.
Through the coordination of the architect Giovanni Tironi, this was my proposal: Suspendido, an outdoor rocking chair inspired by the idea of a suspended seat introduced by Marcel Breuer with the Wassily Chair.
My Thesis Project was an overview on Rietveld's work, from the first step of De Stijl movement, untill his last year of production, through an exhibition for the Triennale di Milano.
The exhibition was divided into four different areas: starting from a retrospective of his life and works, then going to an overview of his iconic design and architecture with a sculpuristic room in between called "A Neo- Plastic Space".
The first room was dedicated to a short movie about Rietveld life and works, a series of modified Zig-Zag chairs was used as seats. With his furniture Rietveld was trying to left the surrounding spaces uninterrupted. The intention was to let the outside space freely flow and connect with the inner space of the object itself. The Zig-Zag chair was actually called by him a little fraction of space.
The second room was dedicated Rietveld furniture icons, from the first works on commision untill theSteltman Chair, his last piece, passing through the iconic Red & Blu Chair and the Berlin Chair. Starting from a painting of Theo van Doesburg, Rythms of a Russian Dancer , I designed the floor plan of the exhibition space.
The third room was concieved as a passage moment between Rietveld as designer and Rietveld as architect. The installation called A Neo-Plastic Space is a wooden structure inside of which the space itself is defined by physical extensions of the Red & Blu Chair.
The fourth and last room was dedicated to Rietveld architecture. In 1955 for the Kroller-Mullermuseum, commisioned by Sonsbeek foundation, Rietveld designed an exterior Pavillion to expose sculpture of the foundation. The architect and critic Geert Baekert said that the Sonsbeek pavillion was an intepretation of the Berlin Chair; again the connection between furniture and architecture in Rietveldworks shows how the flowing of lines and shapes in the surroundings can generate infinite realities. In this room the spatial extension of the Steltman Chair and the Berlin Chair generate three different spaces.
