in the forest…

As ever am a sucker for sheer spectacle, and throw in a bit of state of the art technology and that will do nicely for me, so i was happy to spend some time just looking at shiny, flashy things in the canon installations for  “In the Forest”:

“Fall in pop” by Mintdesigns, Nobuhiro Shimura and LUFTZUG

Fall in Pop is made up of 3D screens made from draped fabric in which motifs are projected, filling the space with light and colour. The sculptural form is meant to give the feeling of waterfalls as images trickle down the textile.

Also part of In the Forest – Japanese architect Ryuji Nakamura and imaging artist Nobuhiro Shimuraa are responsible for ‘spring‘, a cube-like matrix structure made-up of piano wires which are arranged in a lattice format. Images are projected on the floor:

salone spaces…

Best part of the Salone di Milano is getting into spaces that are not normally available to you or getting to nosy into shops that normally are way too chi chi for the likes of me!

“Growing vases” reflecting their surroundings by Nendo -metal pipes used by glassblowers left in place, so the light becomes the bulb and the pipe the flower…

From tasteful white surroundings to the über eclecticism (and over pricedness) of Rossana Orlandi’s store in the Magenta area:

Yes my friends, those are stuffed tapestry animals for hanging on your wall, the stuff of nightmares, but rather magnificent in their awfulness (and ridiculously expensive by the way…).
