Unopiu in Wonderland
For Salone del Mobile 2013 Ferruccio Laviani has created a wonderland à la Lewis Carroll, crowded by Unopiù creatures in the garden of Triennale, one of the most popular destinations of the Milan design week.
The flair and imagination of one of the main representatives of contemporary design, a visionary storyteller, will invite the audience to discover the attractions of a colourful, dreamlike universe nourishing and renewing itself through fantasy, drawing on the rich catalogue of Unopiù, leading company in outdoor design, which has realized the dreams of freedom and relax of outdoor life.
Seven small colourful gazebos – fuchsia, red, emerald green and light green, blue, yellow, orange – will host out-of-scale microworlds, hanging between reality and fiction: three conservatories will conceal privés with renown furniture and novelties of 2013, by proposing outdoor solutions for banqueting and relax. The remaining ones will host jungles of gigantic plants and flowers, several fantastic objects, animals and human figures or 700s-like anatomical tables, represented through large colourful and black and white drawings printed on panels hanging from the ceiling.
Every structure will form the chapters of an outdoor fable, to be visited according to an order suggested by personal inspiration and sensitivity, by following wooden paths drawn on the green. On a special runway, défilé of Unopiù red chairs, hanging in the balance on light gibs, bent and inclined as if they’ve just emerged from the underworld.
