April 2016

A competition of ideas for projects in Cristalplant, inspired by the style of Elica.

Variazioni by Elisa Ossino, is the space that will host Cristalplant® for this year’s week at the Milan Furniture Fair, Fuorisalone section. A unique space located in via Solferino 11 that you will have a chance to visit between 12nd and 17th April (right side of the courtyard, first floor).

This space was chosen as the official location for the presentation of the winning projects of the Cristalplant Design Contest 2016, promoted by Cristalplant® in collaboration with Elica, on Thursday 14th April at 7:00pm.

Along a route through the five rooms of a flat in Brera, the exhibition will lead us to a quest towards abstraction. A simplification of shapes translated into pure geometry. Different background colours punctuated by geometric textures become an abstract space from which surfaces and lines emerge in an alternation that designs the space itself. Variations in geometry, colour and size that translate into objects. A tribute to void filled by colour in a dialogue with materials and shapes.
