Materia, aria, spazio, luce. Forme dinamiche, armoniche, galleggianti, lucenti. Figure che illustrano uno sviluppo tecnologico armonicamente riflesso nella dimensione estetica.

In occasione del FuoriSalone 2016, l’architetto Piero Lissoni interpreta il logo Audi in due installazioni collocate in corrispondenza di altrettanti luoghi emblematici della città di Milano: l’area antistante la Torre Velasca e via Montenapoleone.

I quattro anelli, simbolo dell’identità di Audi, diventano due creature metalliche cresciute su una superficie naturale che emanano e ricevono luce. Entrambe richiamano la leggerezza e la forza degli oggetti misteriosi e avveniristici dell’artista Fausto Melotti.

Espressioni di questo paradosso apparente, le due sculture – pensate per suggerire una ricerca che porta all’essenza delle cose, le rende lievi e le illumina – esprimono in realtà un perfetto equilibrio. Due microarchitetture che, viste dall’alto, disegnano la presenza di Audi nella geografia della città.

Torre Velasca

Data Pubblicazione:

Matter, air, space, light. Dynamic, harmonious, floating, glowing forms. Figures that illustrate technological development reflected in the aesthetic dimension.

For FuoriSalone 2016 and Interni Open Borders, the architect Piero Lissoni interprets the Audi logo in installations located in emblematic places of the city of Milan: the area in front of Torre Velasca and Via Monte Napoleone.

The four rings, symbol of the Audi identity, become metal creatures growing on a natural surface that emit and receive light. They evoke the lightness and strength of the mysterious, futuristic objects of the artist Fausto Melotti.

Expressions of this apparent paradox, the sculptures – conceived to suggest research that leads to the essence of things, making them light and luminous – actually convey an idea of perfect balance. Micro-architectures that seen from above indicate the presence of Audi in the geography of the city.

Digital Borders

Project Felice Limosani
Portale Sud Scalone d'Onore
Articolo di: Paolo Zangheri
Data Pubblicazione: 6 April 2016

Borders that tighten and close in reaction to geopolitical events in the world, in contrast with the burgeoning digital reality that takes man beyond his physical limts and projects him beyond the planet’s atmosphere.

The video installation symbolically expresses the paradox of increasing limitation of geographical boundaries, while digital boundaries rapidly expand.

Every day we generate 2.5 billion bytes of data. A mountain of items of information that can be intersected and analyzed to suggest unprecedented strategies and pathways.

Can careful interpretation of digital information open up new ideas for life, integrated with the migrations taking place on the planet? The challenge is how to organize the resources of Big Data, global policy and the civil society.

The project is made with a dedicated CSM (Content Management System) to monitor UN data on migratory movements, available online. The information has been processed with Unity (an integrated authoring program for the creation of 3D animations in real time) and with generative, algorithmic graphics.

Moving Lights

Facciata Esterna
Project Studio Castagna Ravelli



Data Pubblicazione: 6 April 2016

Bands of light directed upward, bowing and rising, intersecting and overlapping, to underline the festival of design organized by Interni in the spaces of Ca’ Granda: ten mobile heads in constant motion, hidden by two boxes at the sides of the gate enhanced by a line of Azul marble.

The light is white, to not superimpose itself on the color of the historic building, and to highlight the entrance to Open Borders.
