VOYAGEUR EN CHAMBRE
project by A. Marcante – A. Testa for “ROOMS” exhibition, curated by Elle Decor Italia.
Palazzo Morando, via Sant’Andrea 6, Milan, October 6-18, 2015
An Interior where fabric is interpreted from an architectural viewpoint as both an element that separates spaces to create an experience from its sensory qualities, and as a light diffuser to emphasise the transparency that characterises it. An environment packed with stimuli for unusual uses of textile material: a Nordic project in its clarity of purpose but full of references to the masters of 20th century Italian architecture. From Carlo Mollino – in the use of curtains separating the spaces and as a support for pictures and objects – to brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in the tribute to their Teli lamp. Through to Gio Ponti and his equipped windows, in this case opening to textile landscapes.
