new wireline lamp for flos will be presented in milano in two different locations.
first as a preview in the collectors’ lounge of miart (5- 7 april), then at the salone del mobile (9-14 april) in the pavilion 24 at new design holding booth .
further elaborating on some of the design principles of the previous lamp wirering, formafantasma is again using the power cable as one of the main design features. flattened to resemble a belt made of rubber and hanging from the ceiling, the cable holds a ribbed glass extrusion containing a led light source.
the lamp, that can be installed as a single piece, or repeated to obtain elaborate visual compositions, is in fact reduced in size once packed.
wireline will available in 2 colors: grey and light pink.

the second edition of 1+1+1, a project by elena quarestani and curated by marco sammicheli, continues to explore the relationship between art, architecture and design in the works of three different authors. an architect, an artist and a designer have been invited to make new, site specific installations in the exhibition halls of assab one. the different codes and references of each particular discipline dissolve and converge in pursuit of creative visual search in painting and light, material and form, sound and performance.
johanna grawunder, american architect, constructs two large paths of light and co- lour into which the visitors can enter and wonder. bright hanging constructions in di- verse material and the surrounding darkened space offer an experience of crossing between reality and vision. the title of her installation is alone together.
christoph hefti, swiss designer, will install a surreal encampment where carpets, ceramics and other objects create a place of chance encounter between the imagination of the author and the reaction of the visitors. an installation of a visual and tactile arcipelago, full of suggestive sounds. the title of his installation is that horse, slamming doors.
antoni malinowski, london based, polish born painter alternates the selection of light sensitive paintings with light specific wall drawings. malinowski’s work examines the dynamic of light and pigment interactions on the junction of the pictorial and architectural spaces. the title of his installation is almost seen.
*during the days of milano design week assab one will host a special project by students of isia of faenza, coordinated by designer andrea anastasio.
