OGR (Officine Grandi Riparazioni), From 9th to 20th May 2018, Turin.
The display designed for the exhibition “Un giorno tutto questo…5 domande sul futuro che ci aspetta” in occasion of the Salone Internazionale del libro di Torino occupies the spaces of the Duomo at OGR (Officine Grandi Riparazioni), and it grows in length for the entire room. Starting from the plan of the room, the projects divide it into 3 corridors, three autonomous areas that remind typical shapes and directions in architecture. All the elements are made of CNC cut EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) blocks, easy to build, move and reuse. Each area exhibits a different kind of material and some pre-spaced information on the walls of the Duomo guided the visitors. The neutral color of the EPS helped to collect the different and colorful materials. Some led neon lights marked the EPS block, thus highlighting them in the darkness of the room.
