above > london-based french architect arthur mamou-mani and his eponymous studio.
the site-specific work, situated in milan’s 16th century palazzo isimbardi.
digitally designed and fabricated, conifera has been created from seven hundred interlocking modular bio-bricks, 3d printed in a mix of wood and bioplastic. aiming to be one of the largest structures to date conceived and realized using this method, conifera reflects a new generation of architecture, showcasing advances in material innovation, technology and creativity.
the site-specific installation is formed in modules that shift from a wood and bioplastic composite in the courtyard through to translucent bioplastic in the palazzo’s garden.
the installation marks cos’s eighth consecutive installation during salone del mobile and its first collaboration with mamou-mani.
