Installations for the senses at Milano Design Week

Salone del Mobile is coming up soon! April 4 through 9 the Fiera Milano exhibition centre in Rho hosts the 56th edition, while a number of Fuorisalone events liven up the city. Floornature’s editorial staff will be covering Design Week Milano from SpazioFMGperl'Architettura at Via Bergognone 27, with updates on the portal’s social networks and on livegreenblog. But here are a few sneak previews! Our attention has been captured by two installations intended to interact with visitors’ senses: Blow (s)kulture by Davide Vercelli, “FARE LUCE”, an installation by Giovanni Maria Filindeu and a video project by Gianluca Vassallo for Foscarini Spazio Brera.

Blow (s)kulture (5Vie Design Week – Via Fulcorina 17) is composed of 12 oscillating sails in two rows, animated by micro-ventilators hidden in its base which, with the aid of a series of moving sensors, are activated only in the presence of visitors. The movement of the sails causes the glasses at the ends to bump together, creating a delicate, harmonious sequence of sounds. The installation is completed by high impact lighting. The system created by designer Davide Vercelli is a poetic way of exploring the concepts of chance and automatic production of sound and motion.

Gianluca Vassallo’s video "Fare-Luce - Il Film" is a communication project for Foscarini visible on the brand’s social networks starting on March 21, consisting of fourteen short videos illustrating everyday acts pertaining to the discover of light and introducing the theme of "Making Light", also addressed in the installation by Giovanni Maria Filindeu for Foscarini Spazio Brera, an intimate, evocative way of exploring the many forms of light in six different settings.
