Abitare il Tempo. This year, it's outdoors too.
IL CASONE flooring in the setting created by Frassinagolab
A new exhibition space, but that’s not all: this year, Abitare il Tempo hosts a section entirely dedicated to the outdoors, devised to be used as an open-air rest area too, between the entrance and the new pavilion 1.
The design is by the Frassinagolab studio of Bologna, which has created a gigantic coloured carpet which unfurls, intercepting the tracks and pathways of the visitors, who are captured in a new system of viewpoints by the features which, taking on volume and body, alternatively become chairs, backdrops, or green cladding.
The outside area thus assumes its own identifying connotation, enriched by design objects and outdoor furniture, and is also, in part, restated in the interior of pavilion 1.
Delineating these routes is the flooring in IL CASONE pietra serena, which is used in all the exhibition areas, in the 76 x 76cm format (2cm thick, polished finish), and in the passageways, in the 50x160cm format (4cm thick, sand-blasted finish). A “carpet” of natural stone, therefore, that marries perfectly with the concept behind the exhibition, created in response to the ever more important need to relate to open spaces.
Exhibiting companies: Atmosphera, Castiglione relax, Coro, De castelli, De
