There is all the graceful lightness and calibrated, measured and at the same time full of erudite references which distinguishes Cristina Celestino in the exhibition project that reinterprets the spaces of the historian Fioraio Radaelli in via Manzoni 16.
A tribute to the ‘nature’ of the place
Guglielmo Ulrich and the Fioreria Radaelli project
In the 1945 project, Guglielmo Ulrich redesigns a rigorous and luxuriant space where the border between architecture and furniture dissolves becoming a choral work: the typical elements belonging to landscape architecture, such as the steps, the niches and the fountain, interact with those of the interior design, including the desks, the wooden and glass cases and the boiserie made of wood.
A new way of perceiving space
The setting designed for FuoriSalone 2022 is articulated around the relationship that is created between the original architectural parts, designed by Ulrich, and the intervention of the designer. By concealing any decorative interference through the use of mirrored objects that celebrate the (literally) nature of the place in an ironic and at the same time magical way, we obtain a coexistence of matter and contents, suggesting a new way of perceiving and using space.
Ecosystem of an interior, in dialogue with the outside
The installation winds through a wide-ranging space, such as the entrance hall, to more intimate and intimate places such as the fountain room. All this to suggest a new idea of green, urbanly domestic . A manifesto that tells of a hybrid life between inside and outside, between public and private.
