Two exhibitions by Giulio Cappellini. IBM Studios Milan - Piazza Gae Aulenti, 10

An enveloping experience, a journey into a multifaceted aesthetic universe and a glance at tomorrow revealed in the home poised between materiality and immateriality. This in brief is Cappellini’s world for the FuoriSalone.

Giulio Cappellini

In Looking to the Future the brand recounts its vision of the contemporary product with a display of its new collection in a scenic box enlivened by light and music. In this immersive place, the objects on display decode the brand’s DNA devoted to experimenting, capable of expressing the multicultural language of design through its interpreters.

Outstanding among these are important new entries such as BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group, making its debut in padded furnishings, new discoveries such as the young Belgian Nik Aelbrecht and reconfirmations such as Patricia Urquiola or Jasper Morrison.

The exhibition Slowdown Refuge investigates, by contrast, the theme of the home through an ambiance that fuses design and technology, past and future, material and immaterial. This space, which can also be observed from above, was imagined by Giulio Cappellini as an almost evanescent succession of themed rooms where iconic pieces and new objects engage in a dialogue. The experience of a visit is completed by exploring the Metaverse through the works of former students from the Istituto Marangoni who, In the Expanded Beauty project, imagine a future home in space.
