OPEN FUTURE: WALKING THROUGH TIME
AANT – Accademia delle Arti e Nuove Tecnologie
THE LITTA VARIATIONS / 4th Movement – Palazzo Litta, Corso Magenta 24, Milano
In collaboration with: Valli&Valli
The interaction between past and future, tradition and innovation, comes to the fore in OPEN FUTURE, an installation born from the active collaboration between Valli&Valli with AANT. Various rooms feature iconic models of Valli&Valli handles, from those that have defined its history to the present day. In the penultimate room are the new designs presented at Milan Design Week 2018: YB Duemiladiciotto by Yabu Pushelberg for Fusital, and Alina and Cenerentola, respectively by SOM and Studio Veneziano + Team, both for Valli&Valli. The journey ends with a mystery room.
An artistic installation, it focuses on concepts of the future, evolution and renewal, starting with a concrete project but transcending it by playing with infinite possibilities, and showing the surprising worlds that an object as familiar as a handle can open.
