This weekend i took a short trip to Milan, on the occasion of Salone del Mobile. It’s been a really long time since my last visit, but this time i didn’t get the chance to visit the city center.. We visited only the Fuorisalone and only Via Tortona and Via Savona.. The weather was amazing and the streets were filled with people from all over the world!
First stop the Nhow Hotel, where our friend Michele Chiocciolini and his amazing leather clutches were! Art and design made in Tuscany, a collection in leather and fabric with pop echoes created by him!
Then the Soffio installation! The word is italian and means breathing.. The installation is formed from fragments of illuminated glass and LED and by the ‘”rainbow” that it generates, and for the designers it represents the “sensitivity of light and beauty, a low energy that creates a sense of welcome “. The individual light formed by the LEDs represent an ecological city with minimal energy use and sustainable.
And then the “Fluidic Sculpture in Motion” by Hyundai.. A unique installation that creates dynamic virtual sculptures using lights, conveying the essence of fluidic sculpture, the inspirational role played by nature and the ability to continuously adapt to the changing environment. Is made up of 12.000 translucent spheres suspended above a shallow pool of water. Each sphere is carefully positioned in a highly optimized distribution algorithm which takes into account the location and projection angle of eight high powered laser projectors around the installation.In the photo below me standing on one of the spots where you could “guide” the lights of the sculpture (thanks to Nikos for the photo)!
And some other pics from other spaces and events!
Thanks to Niccolò for the photos below of Me, Chiara and Nadia!
Now back in Florence, where spring is here for good and i can finally sit outside and enjoy the sun! Have a nice week everyone!
