Milan Design Week 2022 – In The Courtyard Of The University Of Milan
At FuoriSalone 2022 (Milan Design Week 2022) Nardi will be presenting an evocative immersive installation in the form of an open-air labyrinth in the heart of Milan.
Labyrinth Garden, curated by Raffaello Galiotto, is a fascinating and engaging multicursal path, extending 625 square metres in the 18th-century courtyard of the University of Milan. It features a Sipario outdoor modular partition wall system in 100% recyclable regenerated plastic.
Location: Università degli Studi di Milano, Via Festa del Perdono 7
Date : June 6-13, 2022
Time : 10:00 – 24:00
The public can enter the labyrinth, an entirely walkable route, get lost along its winding pathways and find the way out, by trial and error, by reaching the centre of the area where a tower is located: they can climb the tower (more than 5 meters high) to see the pattern of the entire route and catch a glimpse, at last, of the exit.
Halfway between playfulness and reflection on the contemporary world, for the designer this labyrinth symbolises losing one’s way in the uncertain historical period we live in, marked by an unstable balance of issues concerning the environment, peace and health. It therefore becomes a metaphor for disorientation, doubt, but also hope: by climbing the tower in the middle of Labyrinth Garden, visitors will be able to rise above the labyrinth, look into the distance and get a glimpse of their own personal ‘way out’.

Labyrinth Garden was created thanks to 419 elements of the Sipario outdoor modular partition, made of recycled plastic and featuring a high degree of compositional flexibility, maximised by a sophisticated hinge system allowing all curved and variable-angle configurations. Sipario is fitted with a self-watering planter.
Moreover, in other ‘meditative’ areas, the key features include the brand new collection of Stack and Combo stools and tables. Also made of recycled plastic, like Sipario, they are the outcome of the Regeneration industrial project by Nardi for the production of outdoor furniture in post-consumer plastic, in line with the company’s constant commitment to environmental sustainability. For Sipario, in particular, a recently commissioned LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) study demonstrated a carbon footprint 37.2% lower than the same product theoretically made from virgin polypropylene.
Labyrinth Garden is an installation with no waste. For example, the 850 bamboo plants and 6 feather reed grass plants used will be donated to the Municipality of Chiampo at the end of the event. www.nardioutdoor.com
