The installation incorporates 13 Vertigo side tables, designed by AquiliAlberg for Italian design brand Moroso and launched earlier this year.
Casa Decor continues until 25 September and is part of the year-long Torino World Design Capital 2008 event taking place in Turin.
The following information is from AquiliAlberg:
“Vertigo Lounge installation” Casa Decor
Turin - Italy 2008
AquiliAlberg studio has been selected to design the Casa-Décor lounge installation in Turin, in collaboration with Moroso, Iris Ceramica and Tosetto Allestimenti.
Inspired by Escher works, the installation is a result of extensive research which analyzed movement perception.
It brings to light a new dynamic quality which is customized in a very strong abstract and conceptual form which evolves in the space as a continuos rotations of surfaces.
The design relies on a definite set of proportions where elegance and dynamism is generated through a process which provides a sensual image.
The Vertigo side-tables design for Moroso and the 2 central unfolded furnishings which turn from seating into shelf can seduce and engage immediate interaction with everyone perception. Also the black shiny and reflective floor contribute to describe the illusion of movement.
The slightly rotation of the floor and its diagonal cuts which enphasize every access to the lounge area configure a multiple relationships between the existing and the new. This puts in context a vision of architecture with contemporary spacial values tending to emphasize the atmosphere and the interface.
