How often do we have the opportunity to talk about the luxury of 10,000 years ago?
Where architects live
“Where architects live” is the name of the exhibition which tells us the tale of homes and private spaces of eight most famous architects, in a form of a magnificent multimedia installation, or to be more specific, a space through which you can walk, like through a grandiose architectural promenade, in contemporary and domestic environment.
Envisioned as an artistic escort to the Furniture Fair in Milan, this exhibition represents an innovative gaze upon the subject of home and living, and it was done by Cosmit. President of Cosmit, Claudio Luti, had stated: ““One of the remits of the Salone del Mobile is to build culture, sparking experiences and suggestions that become benchmarks for the home furnishing sector, which lies at the very heart of the Salone del Mobile. “Where Architects Live” is an exhibition that also serves to valorise our manufacturers – they too innovate and build culture through production, thanks to a blend of unique and characteristic factors such as the ability to excel in manufacturing combined with the ability to convert the creative ideas of international designers into objects and projects that become benchmarks for home furnishing all over the world”.
Conceived and curated by Francesca Molteni and Davide Pizzigoni, “Where Architects Live” chronicles an exploration/incursion into the homes of Shigeru Ban, who has just won the 2014 Pritzker Prize, Mario Bellini, David Chipperfield, Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas, Zaha Hadid, Marcio Kogan, Daniel Libeskind and Studio Mumbai/Bijoy Jain.
