Mini Living presents a new visionary living concept at Milan Design Week 2018, based on the idea of making creative use of abandoned urban space and highlighting the importance of the principle of participation in architecture. The “Factory of ideas” installation turns people into active creators and puts them back at the heart of the design process.
In a reinvented industrial space characterized by a large work-table of red varnished steel and movable carts, guests have the opportunity to create their own ideal micro-architecture, through the compositions of different forms and materials.
The construction elements are displayed on Alucore metal shelves that become vertical abacus of the single components, while the customized totems are shown on a bookshelf-display that recalls a building section, called the Wall of Fame. Even the external seatings and the entrance portal are combinations of simple volumes giving the idea of a modular architecture.
