salone miscellany…

Lixil “a new desire” installation was a lot of fun and also contained a bath that constantly created its own bubbles…mercifully there were no “models” in bikinis (it does happen sometimes…still…)

look they are all wearing black…must be curators!

…also fun as it’s free drink (what’s not to like) Ltd edition Heineken bottle made from aluminium, changes colour and design depending on ambient lighting.

…and the big kahunas…

burning down the house…

I found this in a courtyard in Milan’s Università Statale. The work is called Ablaze – Sentimento (S)travolgente by Ingo Maurer with Axel Schmid

For an exterior shot you have to make do with my drawing as i was so hypnotised by that bloody pendulum inside (see film below) that i forgot to take exterior shots!. Apparently its a metaphor for a burning house just a the point of collapse…If you look closely at the reflections in the film, you can see the courtyard designed by renaissance-architect-genius (phew!) Bramante…

no tampering with colour in editing, you see it as it was…

other red things…
