Hotel RCA – Ventura Lambrate, Milan

April 20, 2010

Between 14th and 18th of April 2010 a show titled “HOTEL RCA” took place in a new area, competitive to Zona Tortona called Ventura Lambrate. The hotel show was arranged in two spaces, which used to be a part of Lambretta scooters factory and which were soon to be demolished by the owner. The name of the show gained an extra meaning because of the volcanic eruption, which trapped many of us in Milan, forcing us nearly to sleep in the space . Beside some problems with electricity in those halls an exhibition was successful and never empty. Even when the show had to be taken down few hours before the schedule, public was still flooding the show.  Additionally one of my former pieces, hanging papier-mache table for the train compartment was shown next door within the Lambretta Art Project gallery as a part of  “13.798 Grams Of Design” show, which was quite a high-profile exhibition with some renown names having their pieces shown there:

Barber & Osgerby, Fernando & Humberto Campana, Oscar Diaz, Konstantin Grcic, Gitta Gschwendtner,  Richard Hutten, Sjoerd Jonkers, Max Lamb, Arik Levy, Ross Lovegrove, Peter Marigold, Ben McCarthy, Nendo, Marc Newson, Fabio Novembre, Polka, Karim Rashid, Inga Sempé, Studio BetaTank, Kiki van Eijk, Marcel Wanders, Maciek Wojcicki

Here in the evening it could be really seen how cosy space was created in high ceiling building using the L.O.F.T furniture with its lighting features.
