here’s a new exhibition, which starts just before Milan Design Week: Stanze. Altre filosofie dell’abitare (lit. Rooms. Other philosophies of living). Part of the XXI Triennale International Exhibition Milan, Stanze. Altre filosofie dell’abitare is on from the 2nd April until the 12th September 2016. Curated by Beppe Finessi, this exhibition shines a spotlight on interior architecture. Eleven architects and designers show a room set each; this illustrates their own personal views on inhabiting the space.
With “Circolare, circolare”, Manolo De Giorgi shows his concept for dynamic living: 80 cm-long strips are placed next to each other and this in turn, forms different flowing corridors, in constant motion. “La Vie en Rose” by Lazzarini Pickering; this is a small domestic utopia especially designed for a couple, a sustainable project which generates its own energy. There’s also a room set by Alessandro Mendini, it’s a sort of prison cell with laminate walls, geometric decorations and a hall of mirrors.
Stanze. Altre filosofie dell’abitare has a lot more to offer. There are many room sets which bring together emotions and ideas, just like “Lift-Bit” by the Carlo Ratti studio. “Lift-Bit” is an ultra-technological installation, inspired by the idea of having a third skin (a second skin after one's clothes).
Furthermore, all room sets are accompanied by an in-depth analysis by philosopher Francesco M. Cataluccio. He has especially chosen literary and philosophical extracts to go with each project. And without a doubt, they will resonate with each and every one of us, showing different ways of experiencing and inhabiting the home.
When: 2 April – 12 September 2016
Where: La Triennale di Milano, 6 viale Alemagna, Milan, Italy
