PIGMENTI OPEN-AIR : the making of

Event: MATERIAL IMMATERIAL by INTERNI magazine, Orto Botanico di Brera, Milan Design Week 2017.

 

An invitation to contemplation of the Orto Botanico di Brera. Our intention was to create a free and informal space, where you can sit or lie down to rest and enjoy a unique setting.We decided to create a composition of horizontal and vertical concrete elements: these modular elements are repeated in three dimensions and they give the concrete a sort of own delicacy. We wanted to give this ancient construction material a new visual language. The result is an elegant geometry with an imperfect and vibrant surface, smooth and sophisticated without being fragile. A small metaphysical architecture that relies openly with the place, made with a water-based concrete, a natural material bound to the earth. A space where you stand, without effort, without apprehension, just to meditate.
