At Milano Design Week 2023, a fascinating site-specific art installation conceived by AB+AC Architects Arianna Bavuso and Andre Chedid will animate the space at Foro Bonaparte 68 where the brand is set to inaugurate its first showroom in Italy later this year.
Back to the Future is the title of the installation that will charm design enthusiasts with a hypnotic, visual and tactile experience demonstrating how one of the oldest handicraft techniques can be carried over into the future.

Space is organised in a sequence of rooms that break down the exhibition experience into two acts: past a dark room, where the visitors’ eyes can adjust before entering an immersive installation concealed by black curtains, a kaleidoscopic room is revealed. This is where AB+AC Architects conjures up the illusion of a limitless universe, by making use of a mixture of precious and rough stones that form a three-dimensional floor of floating pyramids framed by an endless sequence of portals in custom terrazzo. Visitors may thus virtually transcend physical limits and immerse themselves in a futuristic landscape of infinite possibilities where the past merges with the future.
