The exhibition curators, Luca Molinari and Simona Galateo, have selected three restaurant projects which, according to IRIS Ceramica Managing Director Graziano Verdi, offer “three examples of how Italian architecture can express itself in its highest form in interior design as elsewhere. A challenge which Iris Ceramica has addressed for the past 50 years through its commitment to research and respect for the environment and, since 2007, through promotion of the culture of design and architecture in SPAZIOFMGPERL’ARCHITETTURA”.
The projects on exhibit are:
THE CUBE by Park Associati for Electrolux,
a mobile pavilion and travelling restaurant which will be in Brussels? Parc du Cinquantenaire until July 3: a vast open space with a hyper-technological kitchen in full view, paved with Black Intensity tiles from FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti?s ROADS collection.
Zur Kaiserkron by Vudafieri Saverino Partners,
a renovation project in an important historic building in Bolzano characterised by a patient search for balance between the existing historic building and the needs of contemporary life.
Ratanà, by rgastudio,
in Milan?s Porta Nuova district, a space in an office building dating back to the 1920s conceived as a small workshop and laboratory featuring traditional materials and elements of furniture custom built on the spot.
